These are the Billboard adult contemporary chart number-one hits of 1965. The chart was known as Middle-Road Singles until May of that year, when it was briefly renamed Pop-Standard Singles. In June 1965, some notable changes were imposed upon the chart by the editors at Billboard: instead of listing only the records the magazine deemed were "not rock and roll records", Billboard began compiling actual airplay data from radio stations airing the format; the size of the chart was increased to forty positions; and the name was changed to Easy Listening.
