Billboard #1 Hits: #591: ‘ Sara’ – Starship. March 15, 1986. #1 for 1 week in Billboard Hot 100.

  • Single: ‘Sara’- Starship
  • Record Company- Grunt/ RCA
  • Genre: Pop Rock
  • Written by Peter Wolf and Ina Wolf
  • Time: 4:18
  • B-side: ‘Hearts Of The World [Will Understand]
  • Album-Knee Deep In The Hoopla
  • Grade: C-
  • Peaked at #1 2 weeks in Billboard Hot 100. #66 in UK Singles Chart. #1 in Canada

I am still shaking my head over learning that Peter Wolf not only wrote the putrid ‘We Built This City’- but he also wrote the follow up which also went to #1 ‘Sara.’ I can’t really believe that either of those singles were hits let along #1 hits. Maybe it was the times. The quality of the #1 hits really took a nose dive in 1985 and looking at 1986 it hasn’t gotten any better. In the UK they got this one right- peaked at #66.
