Every No. 1 song... five seconds at a time

We all know popular music has changed a lot over the years. (understatement, much?) But have you ever really analyzed the changes--five seconds at a time?

Stereogum posted a mash up of five-second clips from every No. 1 song until 1992. Apparently the timing comes just as Billboard announced it's 1000th No. 1 hit. (surprise! It's Lady Gaga's "Born This Way")

The mash up is broken into two parts, totaling an hour and a half of musical nostalgia. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but it makes a fascinating study in pop culture.

P.S. Have you seen this girl cover "Born This Way" yet? If not, you should check her out. The girl's got talent.
