US Top 40 Singles for the Week Ending April 30th, 1983

Well, looks who’s back in the top spot! After a week off, Michael Jackson moves back into the #1 spot with “Beat It”.

There are three songs that are about to fall off the charts, “Back On The Chain Gang”, “I Know There’s Something Going On” and “Twilight Zone”, that have all been on the chart for over 20 weeks. Of those three songs, “I Know There’s Something Going On” by Frida (of ABBA fame) leads the pack with 26 total weeks in the Top 40. It’s the debut single from her solo album produced by Phil Collins who, incidentally, plays drums on the track. A month ago, Collins cracked the top 40 (barely) with another drum heavy track, “I Don’t Care Anymore”. That track peaked at 39 before falling off into oblivion (I honestly thought it climbed higher on the chart than that).
