Thanks to everyone who submitted answers to the Guess The Connection III round last week. What did all those tracks have in common? They were all #1 US Billboard hits for more than one performer. And according to my sources, they are the only 6 songs that can claim that feat. (I’m not counting medleys like Stars on 45, though).
The Loco-Motion was a #1 hit for Little Eva and Grand Funk Railroad
Venus: The Shocking Blue and Bananarama
Please Mr. Postman: The Marvelettes and The Carpenters
Lady Marmalade: LaBelle and Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya and Li’l Kim
Go Away Little Girl: Steve Lawrence and Donny Osmond
Lean on Me: Bill Withers and Club Nouveau
