List of Billboard #1 Singles for 1986


The list on this page is for all #1 hit singles for 1986 as charted by Billboard magazine. Before the Hot 100 was implemented in 1958, the list count varied and was fewer than 100 singles.


The singles were tracked by sales, radio airplay (disc jockeys), and jukebox plays. The Hot 100 now includes digital media sales (since 2005).
