You know what?  You're right!

I had thought it came out in the early '90s, but I just had a quick look at my Billboard book and sure enough it peaked in the latter half of 1989... :-[

Good spot, Paul!  :)

I've kept out of the quiz section lately, because all I kept seeing was dude111's usual "link only with some stupid comment" quizzes.  Topics like those belong in the LTE, so that the other thought provoking member generated quizzes don't get lost in the mix.  I've either missed out or arrived too late on a few good quizzes because of him :(
