Somehow I'm not sure those off-weeks (both of which were for top 100 of all time specials) were counted. "Blaze of Glory" was noted to have a 13 week run according to a commercial break, and "Money for Nothing" from Dire Straits was dubbed co-champion for longest running video according to another for its 17 week run. Guess that meant "Cradle of Love" tied it.
The #6 curse seemed to be alive and well, this time striking Slaughter.
Shocking how quick George Michael's run was this time. I was almost certain he was #3 in the final weekend of the year.
BTW, I remember "Disappear" from INXS peaked at #3 and that "Candy" from Iggy Pop, despite still making the 1990 top 100, would make its debut (at #19) in the new year. "Do the Bartman"'s post #1 trajectory was something like this: 6-9-13-18.
Was "911 (Is A Joke)" the only non-charter to make the year end top 100? Subsequent years would have even more.
I was trying to remember where the "Revoked" deal for Milli Vanilli came from. Rewatched the Year in Rock recording I had countless times looking for it! Does he have the chart-topping dates on hand for the 2 videos by any chance? Perhaps technically speaking, "Girl You Know It's True" really did top the chart while keeping "Eternal Flame" from the Bangles out of the top, accounting for the latter being noted as hitting the top in a commercial break. Then again, "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You" was acknowledged as a #1 later that year.
