Abstract (Document Summary)

This week, the L.A. group Bangles closes out the chart year by celebrating their second straight week at No. 1 on the singles' chart with "Walk Like an Egyptian," which held on by a narrow margin over Wang Chung's "Everybody Have Fun Tonight."

Here are predictions for the first singles' chart of the new year (last week, this column correctly forecast the top six songs): 1. "Notorious," 2. "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," 3. "Control," 4. "Shake You Down," 5. "Walk Like an Egyptian," 6. "War," 7. "C'est La Vie," 8. "Don't Get Me Wrong," 9. "Land of Confusion," 10. "The Way It Is."

Those multiple winners started with Lionel Richie's "Say You, Say Me," which in January completed a four-week run at No. 1, and was immediately followed by the only other four-week champ, "That's What Friends Are For," by Dionne Warwick and Friends. The three-time winners were Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" (in late March/early April), Whitney Houston's "The Greatest Love of All" (May), Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald's "On My Own" (June) and Huey Lewis and the News' "Stuck With You" (late September/early October).
