Wow! I was really indecisive in 1985. I guess this whole chart was a big enough deal that I thought Heart or the Thompson Twins were going to find out I like one of the more than the other, so I gave them both #1 for the second week in a row. C'mon, little Wendell! Make up your mind! Ha. Well, I'm sure they would have appreciated the devotion. So this week we get the old school version of John Mellencamp when he still used "Cougar" in his name. Did you even know that when he hit with Hurts So Good and Jack and Diane that he went only by John Cougar? If you were old you would. See, being old has its perks. (Just go with me on this one) Madonna appears back on the chart, though disguised and uncredited for her friend John "Jellybean" Benitez on Sidewalk Talk. While a woman named Catherine Buchanan does the rapping on the song, Madonna's distinct vocals take over the choruses. It was also written by Madonna and given to Jellybean as a gift for all the help he gave her in her early career. See, she's sweet, y'all! Sheila E. is on the verge of having two songs in the top 10 at the same time, as is Prince and Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin wait patiently behind the dueling #1s for their shot at the top spot. Will they make it? What of Olivia Newton John? How big do you think my hair was that week? Stay tuned for the answer to these and many other meaningless question. Until next week, have a totally tubular time!!! Let's switch things up and start off with a video. Go!
