Abstract (Document Summary)

The last time that feat was achieved was in 1983, when the top two spots were grabbed by a writer who wasn't exactly a household name: Jim Steinman, who created "Total Eclipse of the Heart" for Bonnie Tyler and "Making Love Out of Nothing at All" for Air Supply.

However, the others in this elite group are much better known: Elvis Presley, who was the co-writer of "Don't Be Cruel" and "Love Me Tender" in 1956; the songwriting team of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who had numerous chart sweeps in 1964; and the trio of Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, who as the BeeGees dominated the singles' charts in 1978 with their "Saturday Night Fever" hits.
