That statement would have been impossible a year or so ago, when the U.S. charts were being dominated by such British acts as Wham!, Phil Collins, Tears for Fears and Simple Minds. But the last few months have seen quite a resurgence by American artists, starting in early December with the L.A. group Mr. Mister, whose "Broken Wings" took over the top spot from Collins' "Separate Lives."
