The biggest jolt came on the pop albums chart, where Bruce Springsteen lost his top ranking--after a relatively short seven weeks--to the East Coast band Bon Jovi, whose "Slippery When Wet" rebounded from No. 2 to reclaim the No. 1 title they had held for one week in October.
This week's singles' champ is "Shake You Down" by veteran songwriter Gregory Abbott, who moved up from No. 3 to hit the top spot with his first single as a performer. But it's not Abbott's first No. 1, because three months ago, "Shake You Down" won that prize on the black singles' chart. Now that the song has finally "crossed over," Abbott has a chance for a triple championship, because "Shake You Down" also is making noise on the adult contemporary chart, where it leaped from No. 5 to No. 2 this week.
