Thanks for sharing the “Wow” song. Good stuff… sounds like it could be the background music for all kinds of TV shows in the 70's. Checked him out online and he’s got A LOT of music/albums out there. I’ll be digging into them in the next few days. Thanks for sharing jmorgan
100. 84. Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb "Guilty" (#3) 99. 87. AC/DC "Back In Black" (#37) 98. 83. Steely Dan "Hey Nineteen" (#10) 97. 82. Con Funk Shun "Too Tight" (#40)
Finally, at #96, and falling from their #52 peak are The Spinners and their version of the Carpenters "Yesterday Once More" in a medley with "Nothing Remains The Same."
3/28/87 has Paul Simon from Graceland and "The Boy In The Bubble", which fell from its #86 peak to the bottom.
You covered the Spinners' "Yesterday Once More/Nothing Remains The Same" medley before, so let's go on with 3/28/1981:
#95) "Just Like Starting Over" - John Lennon #94) "Ghost Riders In The Sky" - Outlaws #93) "Ah, Leah!" - Donnie Iris #92) "Together" - Tierra #91) "Passion" - Rod Stewart
...and then we get to #90 and entering in that position but only peaking at #88 is Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers fame with a song that would later be covered by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville, here's the original 1981 version of "Don't Know Much":
I forgot to do this yesterday for April Fool's Day, but I would like to present a special BOTTOM OF THE CHARTS for the first Billboard Top 40 Radio Montior 75 position chart on December 8, 1990 (The same chart source Shadoe Stevens AT40 would use for a year and a month starting November 30, 1991):
On 12/8/1990 on the first Billboard Top 40 Radio Monitor chart: #75 is a song that never made top 40 reaches (but did it make top 40 on the Gavin Report CHR chart Dave Sholin's Insider used?) by Don Henley called "New York Minute":
And, as a bonus, the BOTTOM OF THE CHARTS for the Billboard Top 40 Radio Monitor chart on January 5, 1991 - On the same weekend on AT40 where Shadoe did a story on the new Billboard Top 40 Radio Monitor chart mentioning it uses a fingerprint for radio airplay and even there was portions of the "Dragnet" theme in the report!:
#75) "Wicked Game" - Chris Issak #74) "I Saw Red" - Warrant #73) "Get Here" - Oleta Adams
...and on to #72 and at that position are Sweet Sensation with "One Good Man":
4/1/72 begins with a debut at #100 by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show that peaked at #5 with "Sylvia's Mother." Also debuting at #99 is Kenny Rogers & The First Edition and "School Teacher." The song would peak at #91.
NOW FOR MY BUBBLING UNDER BOTTOM OF THE CHARTS ENTRIES:
#110 - Debuting at that position are a Minnesota rock group called Northern Light with their song about their home state - what else? - "Minnesota", and it would make the Hot 100 reaches and peak at #88: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AZBqsFAubg #109 - "Astra Man" by Nektar (previously covered by jmorgan) #108 - At that position but not making the Billboard Hot 100 reaches is a knock off of the Average White Band's "Pick Up The Pieces" but called "Pick Up The Pieces (One By One)" done by AABB: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zBLCuRSeL4
At #110 but not making Billboard's Hot 100 is Vicki Sue Robinson of "Turn the Beat Around" fame with "Trust in Me"
