A look at the diva's biggest songs on the chart.

As Barbra Streisand celebrates her 75th birthday Monday (April 24), we celebrate with a look at the trailblazer's biggest songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

Streisand first entered the chart in 1964 with one of her many signature songs, "People." The single debuted at No. 100 on the Hot 100 dated April 4, 1964; most in the music world were focusing on The Beatles that week, as they ranked at Nos. 1 through 5, a one-week domination still unmatched. Yet, quietly at the chart's opposite end, another legendary act-in-the-making was beginning her own run and "People" would go on hit No. 5 that June.

Over her career, Streisand has landed 41 Hot 100 entries on the chart, including 12 top 10s with five of which hitting No. 1. She first led the chart with "The Way We Were," from the film of the same name, in 1974. (That track also leads our exclusive recap of Streisand's biggest hits on the Hot 100 chart -- see list, below.) Her other leaders: "Evergreen (Love Theme from A Star is Born)" in 1977; "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" with Neil Diamond in 1978; "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" with Donna Summer in 1979; and "Woman in Love" in 1980.

The eight-time Grammy Award winner has also earned 11 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, the most of any woman. And, her longevity is record-setting: Streisand is the only act with a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in each of the last six decades (1960s through the 2010s).

Here's a look at the icon's highest-ranking hits on the Hot 100.
