#9 - Newbeats - Breakaway

This also made the US Billboard Charts - #40 - 7 weeks, Title is known as Break Away (rather than Breakaway).

We've elected to use the name "Breakaway" although some of these songs would be called "Break Away", its easier to check the whole list than to track down the two options.

However the song by The Newbeats is listed as "Break Away (From That Boy)" on the Billboard (and other) charts, so we've changed the WKNR data to conform.

Thanks for the suggestion
