Dawn feat. Tony Orlando

Had a version of this song that hit the US Billboard charts in 1972 (#79 - 4 weeks).

The entry is "Runaway And Happy Together" (with a B-Side of "Don't Act Like A Baby") which suggests that the song is a medley. If that's true then the title is not "Runaway" so it should not be listed here

We have changed the artist to "Tony Orlando & Dawn".

Thanks

Song Title Runaway

you need to add Damn Yankees for the title Runaway.

This site is organised the other way round, we load a set of charts and that generates the entries listed here, we can't "add Damn Yankees for the title Runaway".

If you can suggest a complete chart (for a country or year) that has the Damn Yankees version of "Runaway" as an entry we can add the chart. What we can't do is add an entry without a supporting chart.
