    "What Kind Of Fool Am I" by Rick Springfield - 6 weeks at #21

    I was just looking through the old Billboard magazines through their website and came up with this: In 1982, Rick Springfield's "What Kind Of Fool Am I" moved from #24 to #21 on 7/3/82 and stayed there until 8/7/82, for a total of 6 weeks. The following week, 8/14/82, it dropped to #36. Call it peculiar, this looks like the first song to spend more weeks in the same position without ever hitting the Top 20. Has anyone every came across a chart oddity like this (I mean not limited to #1 or the Top 10).

    "Nasty Girl" by Vanity 6 spent seven consecutive weeks on the bubbling under Billboard chart at # 101 and did not break into the Hot 100.

    Not exactly the same thing but it's the closest I could come up with!

    I just put together a top 2,000 songs of the 80's. (A labor of love). I was suprised at how many songs in the earlier part of the decade stayed at their peak positions for a longer period of time.
