thanks for the input. You guys are always so knowledgeable
you mean only one number one to their name? not counting We are the World of course. lol
i won’t say you are right or wrong. I will say i saw this person live in person at around the time the first #1 they produced came out.
is that something that should be tracked on your sheet or no?
i like that they seem to be having fun doing it. maybe it’s a 2. lol.
Very very few. That’s correct. good point. I’ll try to keep track as far as number 1s go Obviously Carol Bayer Sager is the first non-artist producer.
it’s repetitive and boring with absolute star power and a nice homely harmonica. It’s a 3 for me. But any time Friends like these can get together and sing, then maybe it’s a 4
PRODUCTION CREDITS FOR TODAY’S #1 . “That’s What Friends Are For” Songwriters: Burt Bacharach (5th as a songwriter), Carole Bayer Sager (her 2nd) Producers: Burt Bacharach (2nd as a Producer), Carole Bayer Sager (1st- See Companion Thread Above!) Label: Arista . ((Select Personnel)) Vocals: Dionne (her 2nd) Gladys (her 2nd) Elton (7th) Stevie (10th) – Stevie is only the 2nd individual artist to have 10 #1s in his name after Elvis Presley, and just the 4th over all to do so (Supremes, Beatles) . Percussion & Drums: Carlos Vega (his 4th) and John Robinson (his 8th)  Bass: Neil Stubenhaus (1st) and Freddie Washington (1st) – he also wrote “Forget Me Nots” Guitars: Dann Huff (his 1st) Keyboards: Greg Phillinganes (8th #1) Piano: Burt Bacharach (2nd as a player)
NEW FEATURE TO TNOs:  The FEMALE PRODUCERS . I think this important stuff. Did anyone realize, up to this point, in the whole history of the Billboard 100, there have been JUST 3 #1 songs with a female producer credited? Here they are . * The first was “Midnight Train to Georgia” in 1973, co-produced by Gladys Knight (who coincidentally is on today’s #1) * 1974’s “Feel Like Making Love” was solely produced by the song’s singer, Roberta Flack, but for some reason she listed her name on the credits as “Rubina Flake”! * Evergreen (Love Theme from A Star Is Born)” was co-produced by Barbra Streisand in 1976. That’s it!   But that all changes in 1986.  Starting TODAY, they will become a little more regular.  However, if you asked me who was the first female credited as a producer on a #1 in a decade, the last person I’d guess would be Carole Bayer Sager.  Maybe Madonna, right? And no guessing who will be the first woman to get a 2nd production credit. It shocked me. All of these in the near future will be co-producers. . Spoiler: We won’t see the first solo-credited female producer, with her own name, for a little while.  And please, NO PEEKING ahead! . I will try to keep track of the list of the Female Producers.  Or should I say Produce-hers.  :)
I know. right? obviously I love data and trivia facts. i haven’t looked ahead to see if someone like Mariah or Max Martin has beaten Lionels streak.
upvote for the term “ Manilowesque “
9 STRAIGHT YEARS for LIONEL RICHIE, who gets a special TNOCS award for consistency. Listen to this…between 1978-1986, Lionel was a central part of a one #1 song EVERY calendar year, either as the singer or the songwriter.  This includes his songs with the Commodores, writing songs for Kenny Rogers and USA For Africa, duetting with Diana Ross, and of course as a solo artist.  No other artist has accomplished this feat so far (Paul McCartney had 8) * PRODUCTION CREDITS FOR TODAY’S #1 . “Say You, Say Me” Songwriters: Lionel Richie (9th as a songwriter) Producers: Lionel Richie (5th as a producer), James Anthony Carmichael (6th all with Commodores & Lionel) Label: RCA . ((Select Personnel)) Say ‘Hello’ to your ‘Truly’ #1 Song Musician Specialists! . Greg Phillinganes: Keyboards (7th #1) Michael Boddicker: Synths (7th #1) Paulinho Da Costa: percussion (7th #1) John Robinson: Drums (7th #1) Steve Lukather: guitar (6th #1) Paul Leim: Drum Machine (his 3rd) Abe Laboriel: Bass (his 3rd)
It’s a very dark tale. Gloomy is the right word. But when they get to the big chorus you wish it would never end.
i used to live in that area in the early 90s. It was always called the Village. East broadway was east village. West was the village and then west of 6th was the west village. Spent days of my life in that Tower Records.
