There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all sung by women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #78 is … “I Get Weak” by Belinda Carlisle. The first Belinda song on the list, it was the second single from her Heaven On Earth album, and became her second biggest solo hit, peaking at #2 in March 1988.
