Falling from #99 (that's right, one whole notch) after peaking at #57, is a fun song from Jerry Reed. It spent two weeks at the top of the country charts, and it was his third and final #1. "Here's "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)".
Falling from #93 is The Cars' "Magic." Moving on. we find Duran Duran's #1 "The Reflex, which fell from #90. So, the lost song at #98 (which fell from its peak of #88) is a band from New Zealand named Dragon. Their song is simply called "Rain."

Great funny song indeed from Jerry. And that is the only charted disco song recorded by Jermaine Jackson which is a surprise to me. Guessing Jermaine did not take to disco as other artists like Marvin Gaye did not either.
At the bottom was Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams." That was followed by "Bette Davis Eyes, which fell from 93. At #98, and falling from 92 after peaking at 48, is Jefferson Starship with "Stranger."
#100 was Janet Jackson's "Nasty" which fell from 84. Next was Bruce Hornsby & The Range's "Every Little Kiss." It fell from #75 after peaking at 72. However, since it was re-released the following year and peaked at #15, I will not include it here. at #98 was Genesis' former #1 "Invisible Touch" and that fell from 79. So, the "bottom" this week was at #97. There we find Mick Jagger and the theme song to the film "Ruthless People." It fell from 66 after peaking at 51.
Falling from 68 to the bottom was Pablo Cruise's "Love Will Find A Way." Next were the Kinks, who fell from 62 to 99 with "Rock N' Roll Fantasy". Then, staying put at 98 was Donna Summer's Oscar-winning "Last Dance." So, the lost hit near the bottom was the group Con Funk Shun. They fell from their peak of #60 with "Shake And Dance With Me", which was their follow-up to their biggest hit "Ffun." It did peak at #5 on the R&B chart.
Falling from 77 to the bottom was Laura Branigan's "Spanish Eddie", which just squeaked out a #40 peak. Next was DeBarge's top ten "Who's Holding Donna Now" which was followed by Kenny Loggins' "Forever", which also squeaked out at #40. So, I have to go to #97 and staying there in that spot (after peaking at #81) is Natalie Cole with "A Little Bit Of Heaven."
jmack already covered 1970, so on to 10/12/74. There we find a British studio group named Sweet Dreams, headed up by Polly "Up In A Puff Of Smoke" Brown. Their version of ABBA's "Honey, Honey" fell from its peak of #68.
At the bottom was Dionne Warwick and Jeffrey Osborne's #12 duet "Love Power, while Starship's "It's Not Over('Til It's Over)" fell rom 90 to 99. Falling from 85 to 98 was Suzanne Vega's "Luka. So our lost bottom song was the Nylons, the Canadian group that hit with "Kiss Him Goodbye." That week, they fell from 92 to 97 (after peaking at #75) with their version of "Happy Together."
Falling from #60 to #100 was Kenny Rogers' #1 country and #28 pop hit "Daytime Friends". At 99 (falling from 58) was "Higher And Higher" by Rita Coolidge, and at 98 (falling from 51) was B.J. Thomas' version of "Don't Worry Baby." So, the "bottom" this week is Kenny "I Like Dreamin'" Nolan. He moved up two notches to its peak of 97 with "My Eyes Get Blurry."
Falling from their peak of #89 is a British pop trio called Tight Fit. It's another one of those medleys that were popular in the early 80's, although this is a medley of songs from the 60's. It's called "Back To The 60's Medley."
