* EDITOR’S NOTE: This week begins a string of 12 consecutive weeks where the #1 song sits at the top of the chart for only 1 week. It’s the longest stretch of this particular outcome during the “traditional” period of the Hot 100 (1958-1990). Elton John bookends this unique phenomenon via two songs: “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” lands at #1 for the first 2 weeks of the year and “Philadelphia Freedom” hits #1 for 2 weeks during the second and third charts of April.

However, this week of “Sally G” re-entering the charts, Billboard has dropped the original A-side of, “Junior’s Farm” from their listings. Officially, this week, “Sally G” enters the Billboard Hot 100 as a lone single.
