AMR/ARIA #1 Singles of 1988

Image

11. Fairground Attraction - Perfect
12. John Farnham - Age of Reason
=13. U2 - Desire
George Michael - Faith
15. Bobby McFerrin - Don’t Worry, Be Happy
16. Cheap Trick - The Flame
Age of Reason took over from Kylie's Got to be Certain at #1 in July (AMR) Followed by Perfect through to Simply Irresistible replacing it in September. Both tracks finished the year at #9 and 6 respectively on the EOY Singles chart. Fairground Attraction's album The First Of a Million Kisses peaked at #9.

Age of Reason became John Farnham's second Australian #1 single after his massive return to success with 'You're the Voice' and the Album Whispering Jack in 1986. He had previously burst onto the scene in 1967 with a #1 in 'Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)' and 'Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head', #1's both on the KMR (Kent Music Report) and the Go-Set Chart (Australia's primary music chart previous to the KMR, until 1974). Since, Farnham has posted a few top 5 appearances, including 'Burn For You' (#5, 1990), 'When Something is Wrong with My Baby' (w/ Jimmy Barnes; #2 KMR/#3 ARIA, 1991), 'Have a Little Faith (In Us)' (#3, 1996) & 'Everytime You Cry' (w/Human Nature; #3, 1997). The parent album, also titled Age of Reason, was the second of a trilogy of #1 albums with the aforementioned Whispering Jack, and followed by 1990's Chain Reaction.

I Should Be So Lucky will be the lucky last Winner of the safe pass this survivor, finishing on 6pts. 10 Songs remain.
