WHITNEY HOUSTON'S 'SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU' HITS THE TOP

Abstract (Document Summary)

For the third straight week, there's a new song on top of America's singles charts, with the last two No. 1 songs--Ready for the World's "Oh Sheila" and A-Ha's "Take on Me"--unable to repeat as champions.

This week's winner is the slinky ballad "Saving All My Love for You," which moved up a notch from No. 2 to give newcomer Whitney Houston her first No. 1 song in only her second try, and her second Top 5 hit. (Her first single, "You Give Good Love," peaked at No. 3 in July.)

Houston thus becomes only the second female artist this year to hit the top spot on the charts--the other, of course, was Madonna, who ruled in January with "Like a Virgin" and in May with "Crazy for You"--and the first newcomer in a long time to make an immediate splash on the pop scene without a gimmicky voice, unusual wardrobe or eccentric stage persona.
