Yep, the Rock On The Net site was right. (Caught the AT40 while it was at 35 or 36 and checked online to see if If Deb appeared since the song "Out Of The Blue" was a hit  in early 1988)

I heard Deb on AT40 tonight on the 80's on 8 sirus/XM station.  Yes it was out of the blue I heard.  I forgot what chart number it was on.  I do know she was next to Micheal Jackson.

One thing I find odd is that INXS "Need You Tonight" was on the list (not as a "AT Flashback"), I thought it was released in later 1987. Though guessing it stayed on the Top 40 in early 1988.

The music critics thought it was one of the greatest songs ever but I was never wild about it.  I think it was released in either September or October of 1987 and I think it hung around until January of 1988.

Well, I hardly ever see her albums sold in stores like Best Buy, Sam Goody's, and the only place I've seen Deb's albums sold new was the now defunct Tower Records.

I saw her 'Greatest Hits' at a FYI some time ago.

Can't find any info about the album being out of print...

Speaking of Out Of The Blue, I was listening to a station from where I am from, Indiana, I have moved to Georgia recently but I still listen to a station called 107.9 The Track out of Indy, well any way, they play a full show of classic Casey Kasem, and I just happen to catch the one where Deborah was #4 with Out Of The Blue...he asked will Debbie Gibson go Four For Four, meaning Out Of The Blue being #4 for four weeks....it was cool, the year was 1988.....to check this out on Saturday mornings, just simply look for 107.9 The Track and click into the radio station and look for the listen live option

..what the countdown stated, though on Rock on the Net, it stated it was on #28...

Maybe I heard wrong, though doesn't care since it's good to hear the song.

Ironically, never seen video in it's entirity on television.

Natalie Cole is #9 according to the rebroadcast... (writing while it's still on)

Maybe the site's wrong... eh...


Gloria Estefan "Anything For You" was #8

Long distance dedication: "Born In The USA" from Bruce Springsteen

Tiffany "I Saw Him Standing There" was #7... ugh! she ruined a Beatles song... Though her voice improved as an adult...

Aerosmith "Angel" was #6... one of my favorites  8)

Now on th Top 3

3. Billy Ocean "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car"

2. INXS "Devil Inside"  8) Another classic

1. Whitney Houston "Where Do Broken Hearts Go"

Well, the Top 2 is accurate...

I heard Deb on Casy's American top 40 on the 80's on 8 sirus/XM radio.  She was number 19 with OOTB.
