This week, Boston makes its comeback complete by scoring its first chart "double"--having both the No. 1 album and the No. 1 single in the same week.
The first half of the double was assured by the rapid rise of Boston's album, "Third Stage," which took over the top spot last week and had no trouble hanging on to the title this week.
However, getting that No. 1 song to go along with it was more of a challenge, because in recent weeks the singles' chart has been packed with very strong competition. But nothing could stop Boston's "Amanda," which this week moved all the way from No. 4 to the top, ending the No. 1 reign of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" and leaving Robert Palmer's "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On" in second place.
