SPECIAL NOTE:  This week's survey does not have numbers 2 or 10.  
General consensus is that those two positions would be "I Love 
Rock 'n Roll" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts (Boardwalk) and "We 
Got the Beat" by the Go-Go's (I.R.S.).  These songs were never 
played on WABC, which had softened its format to a more Adult 
Contemporary sound by early 1982.
