The Top 1000 of my lifetime ... #1, at long last!

OK, I've kept you all waiting long enough. Congrats to Paul Dec, who guessed correctly! The #1 song of the past 38 years (at least, by my extremely painstaking calculations) is ...

(drum roll, please) ...

"Smooth" by Santana featuring Rob Thomas.

It was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks, straddling the years 1999-2000. It spent 58 weeks on the chart. It was huge. And I'm happy to say it's a song I actually love.
