This week, Heart's big ballad "Alone" again rules as the most popular song in America--and now ranks as one of the signature songs of the summer of '87.
Right behind "Alone," and in its fourth week in the Top 3, is Bob Seger's "Shakedown," which actually pulled ahead of the Heart hit in record sales but could not overcome "Alone's" huge edge in radio airplay.
Now within striking distance of both is U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," which moved from No. 7 to No. 3 and regained the momentum it seemed to have lost last week. Also back on track is George Michael's "I Want Your Sex," which jumped from No. 9 to No. 5 despite a continuing ban by many radio stations.
