Abstract (Document Summary)

This was a great week on the American charts for Britisher Robert Palmer, who has finally scored his first No. 1 single and first Top 10 album after years of just middling success as part of the "blue-eyed soul" set.

Palmer's long-awaited hits are "Addicted to Love," which moved up from No. 2 to replace Prince's "Kiss" as the U.S.'s most popular single, and "Riptide," which jumped from No. 13 to No. 9 on the album charts.

Previously, Palmer's best showing as a solo act came in 1979, when the blues-rock anthem "Bad Case of Loving You" hit No. 14 on the singles' chart. (Another Palmer song, "Some Guys Have All the Luck," hit No. 10 in 1984, but in a "cover" version by Rod Stewart.)
