Abstract (Document Summary)

Five years ago, British singer John Waite broke through on the American charts with the big ballad "Missing You," which gave him his first No. 1 hit after years of so-so success as lead singer of the '70s group the Babys.

And this time around, Waite has a good chance to stay at the top of the charts for a little longer than the one-week run that "Missing You" had in 1984. That's because there was a big shakeup in this week's rankings, with all of the rest of last week's Top 5 slipping out of contention. Moving up fast-but still not within striking range-were three newer challengers: Milli Vanilli's "Blame It on the Rain" (up from No. 12 to No. 4); Paula Abdul's "(It's Just) The Way That You Love Me" (from No. 9 to No. 5); and the B-52's' "Love Shack" (from No. 10 to No. 6).
