Bobby Sue was #1 country hit (3rd straight) and #12 pop hit in USA. They had the sound. Only Elvira tends to be played now.36: BOBBIE SUE – THE OAK RIDGE BOYS
Cornier than Iowa. I assume this got some play due to it being the follow-up to "Elvira"?
29: WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND - LOVERBOY
Loverboy hits me in the same place a guy like Donnie Iris does - a lot of it is forgettable, but every once in awhile they nail it. This is one of their good 'uns.
Loverboy had a tonne of hits in Canada. Only some crossed the border. Some of their best hits didn't cross for whatever reason.
