"20 Margaritas," Billy Vera, Billy Idol, Billy Joel, Billy Ocean
On the week ending on January 17, 1987 Gregory Abbott topped the charts with 'Shake You Down'. But there was something else notable as well. This very week was unique in that there were FOUR artists with the first name 'Billy' on the American Top 40 chart. At #5 was 'At This Moment' by BILLY VERA and The Beaters and it was rising up. At #17 was 'Love Is Forever' by BILLY OCEAN and it had slipped down a notch. At #28 was 'This Is The Time' by BILLY JOEL and it was climbing the chart. And at # 35 was 'To Be A Lover' by BILLY IDOL which peaked at #6 a few weeks prior. That's The Week Of Four 'Billy's - Vera, Ocean, Joel and Idol. Vera's song would soon become his only #1 hit. Billy Idol would score his only #1 later that year with 'Mony Mony' (famous for that UNIQUE chant that people added to it). The other 2 'Billy's had already had topped the chart before and would again later in the decade.

"Third Time Lucky," Foo Fighters
Right at the end of the title track, which closes the CD - there is a few seconds of silence and then Dave Grohl shouts out, 'F*** you, Darrell!'. This seems to be a playful jab at Darrell Thorp, who helped record the album. He said that the Foo Fighters were fun to work with, so that indicates that little outburst is really just a studio joke.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music) -> Latest Entries

"The Leaving Song Part 2," All About Eve
In early August 1988, the band were about to perform their biggest hit on live television (at the time, the BBC had a rule on Top of the Pops that all artists mimed), but a technical fault meant that although the song could be heard by the studio audience and the millions of viewers in their homes, the band's stage speakers were turned off meaning for the majority of the performance they were just sitting and smiling at the camera. The following week, the band were invited back and singer Julianne Regan chose to sing live; this was rare for an artist to do at the time.
