Number of weeks spent as #1: 2

Fifty-one different songs hit #1 in 1985, but only one stayed for more than one week: Ronnie Milsap’s “Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In the Still of the Night).” It was Milsap’s 27th single (out of 35) to climb to the pinnacle of the Hot Country charts. The pop-country crossover is nontraditional in that it combines Milsap’s original “Lost in the Fifties Tonight” with a 1956 cover of “In the Still of the Night” by The Five Satins.
