It was Tina Turner who emerged as the big Grammy winner, but this week, also-ran Cyndi Lauper got even.
That's because Lauper's "True Colors" single was able to move up from No. 3 to become the most popular song in America, just edging out Turner's "Typical Male," which remained at No. 2 for the second straight week.
"Typical Male" still has a slight chance to grab the top spot from "True Colors," but for now, Turner will have to be content with her edge over Lauper on the album charts. This week, Turner's "Break Every Rule" made a strong gain--from No. 11 to No. 6--while Lauper's "True Colors" repeated at No. 13. (By the way, both albums already have hit No. 1 on international charts: "Break Every Rule" is the most popular album in West Germany and "True Colors" is tops in Australia.)
