"I'll Be There For You" was The Rembrandts (#17 peak). "I'll Be You" is the song that got me into The Replacements back in '89. MTV had it in regular rotation at the time. Most excellent "power pop":

Oops. I got my R bands messed up. I don't think I am familiar with the Replacements. I like the video though. It sounds like it would have done better released around 1985. Has a bit of a Simple Minds/Thompson Twins/OMD type sound which was big then.

Elvis Presley occasionally performed An American Trilogy in his concerts. It was a medley of Dixie, Battle Hymn Of The Republic and All My Trials. A live recording from February 1972 was included on the album Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden. The medley was also released as a single. It reached #8 in the UK but in the US it stalled at #66.

Someone posted this in a Facebook group about 80s music.

Maybe some of these that weren't listed in this thread already will surprise some people here that they never made the top 40.

In 1988, Michael Jackson had three number-one hits – but Get It, his duet with Stevie Wonder, stalled at #80. This should have been a much bigger hit.
