Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me - George Michael featuring Elton John (1992) I Want To Know What Love Is - Foreigner (1985) Here We Are - Gloria Estefan (1990) A Whole New World - Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle (1993)
I've been cleaning out my desk drawers and found the list and wondered which show it was from. These were definitely former #1 songs, as opposed to AT20 Extras, which were from any time of the year. I'm pretty sure it was when the show was still AT20 (since after it became AT10, with more room for extras, they started playing songs that were not necessarily from the same time of year). These are all from the early part of their respective years. I've narrowed it down to 2002-2004, since the front of the page featured a picture printed out in late 2001, and, based on the extras, it looks like it would be January or February. Anyone remember this show?
I started writing down the Top 20/10 AC songs every week in early 2000 till the show's end, along with all the extras, so I'll go through my notebooks when I can find them and see if I can pinpoint the date.
Just came across another one. Here are the "extra" songs:
Regular Extras: Open Arms - Journey Take It Away - Paul McCartney (?) (I did not write down the artists) What's Love Got To Do With It - Tina Turner
Former #1's (or "one of the biggest hits"): The Last Worthless Evening - Don Henley So Emotional - Whitney Houston Walk Of Life - Dire Straits I Can't Go For That - Hall & Oates
Long Distance Dedications: Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion (surprise, surprise!) Missing - Everything But The Girl (Didn't write down the last one)
Since there were ten of them, this has to be an AT20 show, and it's obviously a late December or January show, based on the former big hits.
I'll have to go through my shows - haven't found it yet. Guessing it's from the latter part of the 1998-2004 run, which I have a good chunk of. In the meantime, I'll call on johnnywest for help - do you know this one?

Thank you - turns out I don't have this show. There's a huge gap after the decade-end special, which I have along with the 1999 year-end. The first regular show of 2000 that I have is 6/17. Hopefully in time I can get that gap filled in.
Two more, only I think I know the dates. The first one could be February 27, 1999 and the next March 6. I might have omitted a song or two (since I remember I was playing a Zelda game at the time and was well into it. Also, I'm not sure of the last song on the March 6 show. Here are the lists:
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For – U2 My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion My All – Mariah Carey Head Over Heels – Tears For Fears You Got It – Roy Orbison Wind Beneath My Wings – Bette Midler Trouble Me – 10,000 Maniacs Ordinary World – Duran Duran I'll Remember – Madonna Missing – Everything But The Girl
Not Enough Love In The World – Don Henley Endless Summer Nights – Richard Marx Tears In Heaven – Eric Clapton Kyrie – Mr. Mister Hold Me Now – Thompson Twins I Don't Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith All Those Years Ago – George Harrison Got A Hold On Me – Christine McVie All My Life – Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville Wonderful World
That last song could either be the Simon/Garfunkel/Taylor cover from 1978 or the Louis Armstrong song - I'm thinking it might be the latter.
