Abstract (Document Summary)

For the last two months, pop music fans have been bombarded with publicity about two new superstar albums that were expected to dominate the charts this fall-Bruce Springsteen's "Tunnel of Love" and Michael Jackson's "Bad."

This week, the most popular LP in America is the soundtrack from "Dirty Dancing," a late-summer movie that was a moderate success at the box office, though certainly not a hit-producing blockbuster on the order of "Top Gun," "Flashdance" and "Footloose."

The unheralded rise of "Dancing" bumped "Tunnel of Love" down to No. 2-after just one week in the top spot-and dropped "Bad" to No. 3. Those positions could well be repeated next week, because the first "Dancing" single-the Bill Medley-Jennifer Warnes duet "The Time of My Life"-continues to be one of the hottest songs on the charts.
