All were out-performed in the documented charting by their competitiors, the international smash hit *blockbusters* (songs like this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bette_Davis_Eyes ). IOW, these songs didn't have what it took commercially speaking to dominate as the *best of the best* (top of the heap) did, but considering their often notey, idiosyncratic, erratic & esoteric artcraft, they did quite well. The sidestream does overlap/intermingle with the mainstream, so there are blurred lines involved.

Chapter 4 of this 1980's sidestream tour does have songs which charted a bit higher than typical sidestreamers though. Chapter 5 will get back to normal sidestream chartflirt.
