Billboard #1 Hits: #587: ‘Say You Say Me’- Lionel Richie. December 21, 1985. #1 for 4 weeks in Billboard Hot 100.

  • Single: ‘ Say You Say Me’- Lionel Richie
  • Record Company- Motown
  • Genre: Adult Contemporary
  • Written by Lionel Richie and James Anthony Carmichael
  • Time: 4:03
  • B-side:’Can’t Slow Down’
  • Album-Dancing On The Ceiling
  • Grade: B-
  • Peaked at #1 4 weeks in Billboard Hot 100. #8 in UK Singles Chart, #1 in Canada, Netherlands, Norway and South Africa.

The final #1 hit of 1985 and the first of 1986. And yet another #1 hit from a movie- White Nights. Never saw the movie. I don’t know what I was doing in 1985 but Lionel Richie was dancing on the ceiling. This was Lionel’s 5th and thankfully final #1 solo hit. It is going to be tough to rank all the #1 hits in 1985- so many are mediocre- including this one. Not horrible but would I ever want to hear it again? No.
