Abstract (Document Summary)

There's just no stopping the British duo Milli Vanilli, who scored their second straight chart double on the U.S. charts by having both the No. 1 pop single ("Blame It on the Rain") and No. 1 album ("Girl You Know It's True") in the same week.

On the pop singles chart, Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" jumped from No. 5 to No. 2, and appears unstoppable for No. 1 honors next week. ("Fire" already is the leader in record sales, but "Rain" remained the overall champ because it had a wide edge in radio airplay.) And on the LP list, Joel's "Storm Front" moved from No. 3 to No. 2 to set up a fierce fight for the top next week.
