Abstract (Document Summary)

The song that did it for him is "Higher Love," which was able to move into the top spot despite a very strong challenge from Bananarama's "Venus," which wound up as No. 2. Together, these songs ended the chart reign of Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach," which dropped to No. 3 after two weeks at No. 1. (However, Madonna's "True Blue" still tops the album charts.)

How long can Winwood & Khan keep their No. 1 ranking? Possibly for another week, because "Higher Love's" chief competition, "Venus," has been at peak sales for several weeks and now is due for a slide, and two newer powerhouses, Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" (up to No. 4 from No. 7) and Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" (up to No. 5 from No. 6), are not quite within striking distance.
