Hot 100 Turns 60! The Top 60 Songs That Never Reached No. 1: Which Bette Midler Song Was It?

Billboard
Hot 100 Turns 60! The Top 60 Songs That Never Reached No. 1

Bette Midler

As we celebrate the Billboard Hot 100‘s 60th anniversary, Billboard looks at the silver medalists, the runners-up, and third-, fourth-, fifth- or, in one case, sixth-place finishers, i.e., the hits that didn’t reach No. 1 on the weekly ranking, but were huge hits nonetheless.

LeAnn Rimes‘ “How Do I Live” ranks at No. 1 on the list below, as the smash ballad peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 in 1997-98. It had the unfortunate timing of being blocked by Elton John’s biggest hit, “Candle in the Wind”/”Something About the Way You Look Tonight,” which spent 14 weeks at No. 1. Still, “Live” logged 32 weeks in the top 10 and 69 total weeks on the chart, both records at the time. Its sustainability on the chart helped it land at No. 5 on the recap of the Hot 100’s top 600 songs of all time, marking one of only two non-No. 1s in the top 50. Read More

Bette Midler

*The EGOT is the most coveted award in Hollywood.
*Stars earn the EGOT by winning an Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and an Oscar.
*To date, only 12 individuals make the list of EGOT winners.

Most performers would be thrilled to take home even one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, orTony, but earning all four over the course of a career is the ultimate achievement. To date, only 12 individuals — Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno, Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks, Scott Rudin, Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, John Gielgud, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, Mike Nichols, and Robert Lopez — have completed an EGOT by winning all four awards in competitive categories. But there are many more, including these 28 celebs, who are just one trophy away from the honor. Read More

35 of the most iconic movie songs of all time

Mister D: Honestly, if we are being fair, “The Rose” should have made this list, too. But good job Brinkwire!

35 of the most iconic movie songs of all time
June 19, 2018 by Brinkwire

Bette Midler, Barbara Hershey, Dyed Hair, Beaches

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins (“Footloose”)
The movie musical quickly became one of the biggest hits when it was released in 1984, in no small part thanks to Loggins’ now-iconic song. It’s impossible not to dance when you hear it, which is probably why the song topped the charts for three weeks in a row on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming such a massive hit that Loggins himself was blown away by its success.

Hoffman Files
Songs that will make you instantly weep
By Rob Hoffman on May 3, 2018 at 5:24 AM

Bette Midler, Sad Songs, The Rose

If you’re a man of a certain age, (Let’s call that age 53 and 3/4) then there’s probably a pretty good chance you’re a fan of the movie This is Spinal Tap.  The film directed by Rob Reiner, his very first movie, is the story of a fictionalized band by the name of Spinal Tap, and it chronicles its rise, fall, deeper fall, and sort of rise back to the middle.  The movie is shot in documentarian style, and it began the genre’ often copied by one of the film’s writers and performers, Christopher Guest, known as the “Mockumentary.” Read More

The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category – Bette Midler Proves It In One Segment

The Washington Post
The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category
By Dan Zak
March 2 at 1:42 PM

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Phil Collins grasps his Oscar in 2000; Robin Williams performs “Blame Canada” the same year; Mariah Carey, left, and Whitney Houston perform “When You Believe” in 1999; and, from left, Peter Allen, Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager claim their shared prize in 1982. (Hector Mata/AFP/Getty Images; Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty Images; Clary/AFP/Getty Images; ABC/Getty Images)

Remember when Ann Reinking lip-synced — and danced to — “Against All Odds,” the No. 1 hit by Phil Collins from the movie of the same name, at the Academy Awards in 1985? No?

It was nearly five minutes of theatrical fog, odd lunges and wide-eyed emoting, and Collins had to watch the slow-motion oddity from his seat. The academy wanted a “variety” of entertainers to perform the nominees for best original song, so it didn’t enlist the English rocker, then at the peak of his career.

Audio Only And Links To Projects: Singer Songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman On Bette Midler

Mister D: Here is a dear songwriter friend of Bette, Beth Nielsen Chapman (Color Of Roses) speaking about Bette. I fitinally met Ms. Chapman, who lives in Nashville, where I do. I took a songwriting class she was teaching. She was excellent, but I never wrote shit. Just don’t have it in me. introduced myself, and she already knew who I was through my website. I thought that was pretty exciting. She said others knew about it because sometimes I promoted their work when they worked with Bette. So it was a good experience and it proved to me I was doing what I set out to do…promote Bette, but all the songwriters and musicians that helped in some way to get her as far as possible in her career.
