Abstract (Document Summary)

This week, British pop star Kim Wilde joins a very elite group: Artists who have been able to reach the top of the American charts with a remake of song that already had hit No. 1 for somebody else.

Before the remake rage that began last year, only three songs had been able to do it: "Please Mr. Postman" (the Marvelettes and the Carpenters), "The Loco-Motion" (Little Eva and Grand Funk) and "Go Away Little Girl" (Steve Lawrence and Donny Osmond). But now there are two others with the potential to be the seventh: Pseudo Echo's remake of "Funkytown" (a No. 1 hit for Lipps, Inc.), which is already No. 36 in just its fourth chart week, and the Nylons' new version of "Kiss Him Goodbye" (a chart champ for Steam), which jumped from No. 57 to No. 45 this week.
