SPECIAL NOTE:  This week, for the third time (fifth week) in its 
Top 40 history, there is no #1 on WABC's chart!  This time, there 
is also no #2!  The consensus here is that #1 is either "I Love 
Rock 'n Roll" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts on the Boardwalk 
label, or "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band, on EMI America.  
Whichever one is #1, the other would be #2.  Neither song was ever 
played by WABC, as it had softened its format to a more Adult 
Contemporary sound by early 1982.
