Bangles' "Manic Monday," which peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 in April, 1986, was kept out of the top spot by Prince & the Revolution's "Kiss." Prince wrote both songs, making him one of only five writers in the rock era to hold down the top two spots on the Hot 100 simultaneously. He followed Elvis Presley, Lennon & McCartney, the Bee Gees, and Jim Steinman.
