FLASHBACK: Groundhog Gems And Shadowy Songs

Divas gone dark.

Dark ditties for the day.

Happy Groundhog Day! Yes, February 2 is here, a day when our favorite furry pal, Punxsutawney Phil, lets us have the answer to a burning question: are we due for an early spring or six more weeks of winter? It’s a very important one. Of course, that depends on whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not. If Punxsutawney Phil does indeed view his shadow, winter’s sticking around for six more weeks. If he doesn’t see his shadow, put away those heavy sweaters and long pants, because spring is coming sooner than you think. Well, relatively soon. For the record, he didn’t see his shadow last year, and I’m hopeful that the trend continues this year.

So, before the groundhog and his family come out of their home before a crowd of people, we thought it was only right to rewind a little bit and check out the top “shadow” titles from the archives of the pop radio chart. We’ve had six shady songs reach the top 40 during the last four decades, with half of them making the top ten. Not bad. Do you remember them all? Take a listen below:

(All chart data is taken from the CHR/Pop listing published by trade magazine Radio & Records, except for Linkin Park, which is taken from Mediabase 24/7.)

NEIL SEDAKA – “Love In The Shadows”
Album: Steppin’ Out
Label: Rocket/MCA
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #18, May 12, 1976

ANDY GIBB – “Shadow Dancing”
Album: Shadow Dancing
Label: RSO
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #1 for four weeks, May 26 – June 16, 1978

ANNE MURRAY – “Shadows In The Moonlight”
Album: New Kind Of Feeling
Label: Capitol
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #22 for two weeks, July 6 – 13, 1979

PAT BENATAR – “Shadows Of The Night”
Album: Get Nervous
Label: Chrysalis
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #8, December 10, 1982

ASHLEE SIMPSON – “Shadow”
Album: Autobiography
Label: Geffen
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #15 for two weeks, October 22 – 29, 2004

LINKIN PARK – “Shadow Of The Day”
Album: Minutes To Midnight
Label: Warner Bros.
CHR/Top 40 peak and date: #10 for three weeks, February 24 – March 9, 2008

Make sure you wake up early to catch all the action down in Punxsutawney, PA! We’re hoping for some early spring vibes as well…
