FROM LAKE GENEVA TO THE FINLAND STATION: In factchecking the Glass Tiger reference last night, I came across this site, which lists all the #1 songs as well as the overall top 100 for 1986, along with some trivia on each number one. With hits by Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Madonna and Bon Jovi among those hitting the top of the charts, it may make you feel like twenty years is just not that long a period of time anymore.

Number one twenty years ago this week, for the third straight week? Written and produced by Burt Bacharach and Carol Bayer Sager, it's "On My Own", by the incomparable Miss Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald.
