Added DiffLines:

* ChartDisplacement: Zig-zagged, as "Wish You Were Here" and "19 Somethin'" are his only #1 hits, but a few other famous songs such as "Jacob's Ladder", "Don't Laugh at Me", and "Back at One" did not.


Added DiffLines:

* MoralGuardians: "Hank" was quickly pulled as a single due to objections over the line "Made a long-haired pot-smokin' hippy wanna sing along"


Added DiffLines:

* SpokenWordInMusic: "And the Crowd Goes Wild" features sports commentary by George Plaster before the final chorus.
