Music Monday

US Top 40 Singles for the Week Ending November 5, 1983

Kenny and Dolly are still holding strong at #1. Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” moves into the top 5. Joel had originally titled the song “Uptown Girls” and it was conceived on an occasion when he was surrounded by Christie Brinkley, Whitney Houston and his then girlfriend Elle Macpherson. According to numerous interviews with Joel, the song was initially written about his relationship with Macpherson, but it ended up also becoming about his soon to be wife, Brinkley (both women being two of the most famous supermodels of the 1980s).
