In reply to: Bio & PHOTOS 's message, "ARCHIVE: April 22, 2008 ~Paul Lavon Davis, acclaimed, albeit forgotten, singer/songwriter, known for mellow hits beginning in 1970, best remembered with his haunting 1977's "I Go Crazy", which once held the record for the longest chart run on the Billboard Hot 100, dies of heart failure a DAY after his 60th birthday! ..." on Wednesday, April 22, 03:17:36am

"Tainted Love" got to #8 on the chart.

In 1991, Billboard made major changes to its methodology which caused records to sit on the charts (or at #1) much longer than before. Don't even get me started on the absurdity of comparing anything charting after that point with anything charting before.
