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

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

Do Gay Men Love, Dislike or Feel Indifferent About Taylor Swift?
Instinct Staff | November 12, 2017

Gay men have had their share of female icons in their lives over the course of the past fifty years. Names that come to mind include Barbra Streisand, Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler and more. For my generation, the debate for many years was who did we like more: Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera?

Although those are all still legendary names in the music business, the past couple of years has seen the rise of men in the industry dominating the charts after women like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and more were the ones at the top. Taylor Swift, however,has once again become the diva of the moment and catapulted herself back into the pop stratosphere due to the release of her album Reputation, which is already on track to selling well over a million copies in its first week of release.

Harry Dean Stanton Feuded With Bette Midler On The Rose

wu1ftc0

Stanton played a small role in the 1979 filmThe Rose” as a famed singer whose work is idolized by the title character played by Bette Midler. His character insults The Rose and asks her not to perform his songs. Stanton perhaps took the role a little bit to an extreme and began insulting Midler. On the recent Criterion Collection reissue of the film, Midler waxes fondly about all the cast, but still seems comically resentful of Stanton; she did, after all, once have a production company called “We Hold a Grudge Productions.” (Gold Derhy) Read More
