            ARIA #1 Singles of 1991



            09. Julee Cruise - Falling
            10. Daryl Braithwaite - The Horses
            11. U2 - The Fly
            12. Martika - Love... Thy Will Be Done
            13. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
            14. Melissa Tkautz - Read My Lips
            =15. Ratcat - Don't Go Now
            The Simpsons - Do The Bartman
            17. Ratcat - That Ain't Bad
            18. Big Audio Dynamite II - Rush
            19. Dimples D. - Sucker DJ (A Witch for Love)
            Daryl and Julee out finishing on scores below 20 that round. The Horses was #1 for 2 weeks in May between Ratcat's two entries. It finished up at #4 on the EOY Singles chart and the Album Rise peaked at #3 on the albums chart but topped the EOY Albums chart at #1 as the best selling album in Australia in 1991. Braithwaite's previous album, 1988's Edge, reached #1.

            Daryl Braithwaite had previously had #1's both solo and as the lead singer of band Sherbet (their most well known song is probably 1976's 'Howzat'). Edge also produced other Top 20 singles in 'One Summer' (#8) and 'As The Days Go By' (#11).

            The song was originally a cover of the 1989 Rickie Lee Jones song (her version later appeared in the film Jerry Maguire in 1996), and has since become somewhat of an iconic cult singalong favourite. Here is an article released before Braithwaite was inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 2017 (for the second time, the first with Sherbet in 1990); on the song's revival in popularity.

            Falling was the Theme song to the TV series Twin Peaks and also its 2017 continuation. It held #1 for a week in April between Dimples D. and Roxette. Wikipedia also states: "The instrumental version of the song, performed by Badalamenti, won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance at the 32nd Grammy Awards."

            It has also been covered since by other artists, Including Chrysta Bell who stars in the 2017 version of the show. The version used in the video is an edit. Cruise's 1989 Album Floating into the Night containing the song peaked at #21 according to Wikipedia.

                                Grease Megamix and MJ out that round.

                                From wikipedia:
                                "The Grease Megamix" is a song that was released on 24 December 1990 to celebrate the video release of Grease. The single was credited to John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and released in Polydor Records.

                                It was created by Phil Harding and Ian Curnow for PWL by the request of Polydor Records who supplied copies of the original multi-track recordings.

                                The megamix featured the three biggest hits from the Greasesoundtrack: "You're the One That I Want", "Greased Lightnin'" and "Summer Nights".The song peaked at number 1 in Australia and remained there for 5 weeks in May 1991. It was the third highest selling single there in 1991.
                                The Original Soundtrack reached #1 for 9 weeks in 1978, and again for 3 weeks in 1991 and one in 1998 (when the megamix re-emerged as part of the 20th Anniversary Celebrations). It reached #9 on the 1991 EOY Albums chart.

                                Olivia Newton-John has also had numerous other #1 Singles and Albums on the ARIA chart, including the Soundtrack to Xanadu, and most recently a 2016 Christmas album released with John Farnham. The Megamix was number one for 5 weeks in June-July between Don't Go Now and Read My Lips.

                                Black or White came fourth in the 1992 Survivor and was eliminated almost on the same day three years ago when I ran it in 2016. I'll repost what I said there because it's still relevant:

                                "Black or White sat atop the singles chart for eight weeks, although five of those were in 1991, where it replaced Right Said Fred's 'I'm Too Sexy' in November 1991. It Spent three weeks at #1 in January 1992, replaced by Salt-n-Pepa. Around the world, "Black or White" hit number one in 20 countries, including the US, the UK, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Turkey, Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the Eurochart Hot 100, number two in Germany and Austria and number three in the Netherlands.

                                The song's subject matter is about 'racial harmony' and the music video features Jackson dancing in different settings and styles (with Indian, Native American, African and Russian dancers) and a section with different landmarks including the statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal, Big Ben etc. There is also a cameo by Macaulay Culkin and in the songs finale face morphing section, a cameo by Tyra Banks. The video also had a controversial coda section which led to some censorship of the video.

                                The song was Michael's first Australian #1 single off a studio album since Billie Jean according to his wiki discography, (USA for Africa single 'We Are The World' and 'Do The Bartman' (with The Simpsons) had previously went #1 in the interim), Although he had many other singles both before and after hitting the top 10 and 20.

                                The Dangerous album also was a return to #1 on the albums chart, as Bad had peaked at #2. It ranked 19th on the Top 25 Albums list for 1992. "
                                (#47 on the EOY albums list of 1991).

                                                It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
                                                But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
