In their ever changing definition of a hit, Alan included All Night Long, a non Hot 100er among the MJ Girls entries. But #22 Love Really Hurts didn't count as a biggie for Billy as he said Ocean's first was his Caribbean Queen.
Then he said countdown Nightshift was the first for Commodores post Lionel but they had already had other H100 entries.
Mark said countdown Rhythm was the first biggie for Diane Warren??
Well Wikipedia says so too apparently.
Yet two years earlier Laura Branigan had a top 10 (#7) hit with “Solitaire”, which Diane Warren is credited for writing the English lyrics; it was originally a French song (Branigan evidently had an affinity for English reworkings of European hits, as her biggest hit “Gloria” was originally Italian.)
“Rhythm of the Night” was the first big hit that Warren wrote entirely by herself, an important qualifier that should have been included.
Believe it or not, Alan corrected himself twice during this show, first with saying Company B were headed to #1 before adding that he meant on the dance chart, and then saying Donna Allen was at #27 before saying the correct #28 position.
