Chalk up another great week for Club Nouveau, the four man, one-woman California group whose first single, "Lean on Me," was able to hold on for a second week at No. 1 despite a strong challenge from a veteran band of West Cost hitmakers--the Starship--with "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."
It now has been 20 years since the Starship's lead singer, Grace Slick, scored her first Top 5 hit (as a member of Jefferson Airplane) with "Somebody to Love," which dominated radio airwaves in the psychedelic spring of '67. These days, Slick & Co. favor a much more middle-of-the-road sound, as evidenced by their high ranking (No. 3) on this week's adult contemporary list with "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."
