Just ask Grace Slick & Company, who before last fall had never had a No. 1 single in all their years as a top album act, first as the Jefferson Airplane, then as the Jefferson Starship, and now as just plain Starship.
The song that established the Starship as a "new" Top 40 power was, of course, "We Built This City," which held the No. 1 spot for two weeks in mid-November. And this week the group proved that their singular success was no fluke.
That's because their follow-up single, the appealing ballad "Sara," was able to move ahead of Mr. Mister's "Kyrie" as the most popular song in America. And that gives the Starship back-to-back No. 1's within a period of just four months.
