This week's news is better than good for Michael Jackson's "Bad," which showed its staying power by holding on to No. 1 titles on both the pop and black singles charts and moving up to the top spot among dance singles.
That means Jackson has scored a rare chart "quintuple"-simultaneous No. 1s on five lists-because his "Bad" album also repeated as champ on both the pop and black LP lists.
On the pop chart, "Bad" now faces a showdown with Bruce Springsteen's "Tunnel of Love," which followed the pattern of his '84 smash "Born in the U.S.A." by moving up to No. 3 in its second week on the charts.
