Section 2: The Top 40

Tracy Chapman won a Grammy for best rock song (?) for “Give Me One Reason” back in 1996.

Charles & Eddie hit #13 in 1992 with “Would I Lie To You?” – a song which certainly sounds like a cover tune but remarkable wasn’t.

Cheap Trick’s “Can’t Stop Falling Into Love” charted at #12 in 1990.

Cher hit the top 40 in the ‘90s with “Heart of Stone,” “The Shoop Shoop Song,” “Love and Understanding,” “Save Up All Your Tears” and “Believe.” The latter won her a Grammy for best Dance song.
