The Mystery of the Missing Song
Observant Singing News forum poster LRBB observed a strange anomaly on the Singing News charts for 2001. [EDIT, 11/6/10: Regrettably, the link seems to be broken, so it has been removed.] From May through October, a song charted in the top 40, peaking at #7 in July and August. It was at #23 on the all-year chart.
However, on the Singing News hits archives for 2001, all of the instances where the song appears are left blank. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]
LRBB asked what song was missing. I did some research. The song?
“Left Behind” (Steeles)
No, I’m not kidding. You can’t make this kind of stuff up.
Could some staffer at Singing News be playing a royal practical joke on us? I wonder how long this song has been missing.
