However, this chart debuted on the air on Wednesday, Nov. 5, so the date that appears above reflects when the chart actually took effect. The printed chart mistakenly listed Im Gonna Make You Mine as both #5 and #26, and omitted Baby Its You altogether; however, Baby Its You was played in the #5 slot during the on-air countdown that week. This was the last chart published in GO magazine. The following weeks posted surveys are based on WMCAs weekly on-air top-25 countdowns, supplemented by chart positions below #25 that were announced on the air and noted by listeners.
