    Songs that charted twice or rose from falling?

    Usually, once a song starts going down in spins, it doesn't stop. However, are there any songs that defy that logic? Are there any songs that have gone up after falling? I am talking Mediabase charts here, primarily.

    Hmmm, not sure this is true. The charts are fluid, which means they're constantly changing. Songs rise and fall all the time. The Mediabase rules say that a song isn't removed from the chart until it loses its bullet for two weeks. So it's possible to lose a bullet for a week, then regain it, and continue to rise.

    There's the tale of "The Twist" that reached the summit in 1960 and then dropped off the chart completely. At some point, Zsa Zsa Gabor was seen doing the dance at the Peppermint Lounge, the song returned to the chart and again hit #1 in 1962!

    There are a few songs that were re-released and went high on more than one occasion. Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody originally peaked at #9 in 1976. In 1992, after lead singer Freddie Mercury passed away and the song was used in the movie Wayne's World, Bohemian Rhapsody was re-released and went all the way to #2 (in the UK, it hit #1 on both releases)

    Glad that you asked! We had a whole thread about this!

    Keep in mind that this thread was limited to the wave of reissues in the late '80s, specifically 1988-1989, not any other times. I was not interested in all those other reissues.
