The Jam

You have 2 entries for The Jam's Going Underground for the year 1980. (One of them has Going Underground/Dreams of Children - the B side). This might explain to me why this is quite low in your list for a UK number 1.

You are correct. The song has been reassigned and should be a bit higher

Thanks for the fix
