Wow, love that Janet went straight to A-list.

Also that they supported Cher when she was 43. That would never happen now cry.gif

Did Radio 1 not playlist 'All For You' and 'Someone to Call My Lover' in 2001? I certainly remember them being played at the time?

I havenít got the info but they def A-Listed it as thereís was a lot of hype for her return if I remember

As for Phil he was around for a while before 1989 solo and with genesis so not surprised at the B-List addition. Iím sure this was Phil Collins last big era on radio 1 too!

His next era got a top 10 and one more top 40 single in 1993, not sure if it was supported maybe to a lesser extent. Iím going by the fact ďAnother Day In ParadiseĒ is his last Ďclassicí single imo.
