Abstract (Document Summary)

It was business as usual this week on the singles charts, where Janet Jackson's "When I Think of You" held on for a second week as the most popular song in America.

But there were plenty of fireworks on the LP list, which saw Huey Lewis & the News' "Fore!" rocket into the top spot after just five weeks on the charts. That shows just how far the San Francisco-based group has come in the last two years, because their previous album, "Sports," took more than nine months to climb all the way to No. 1.

However, Huey & Co. may not have long to celebrate, because hot on their heels is the "sleeper" album of the year, Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet," a hard-rock offering that even without the backing of a Top 40 single has managed to move up to No. 2 past such pop powers as Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" (now No. 4) and Madonna's "True Blue" (now No. 7).
