  1. I’m not sure which entity is limiting her to only 16 Top 10 hits in the 80s, but here in the U.S., where the Billboard Hot 100 is used as the measure of a song’s chart success, she had 18 Top 10s (and would’ve had 20 if “The Gambler” and “Into The Groove” had been released as singles in the U.S., as they were overseas):

    1. Borderline (peaked at #10)
    2. Lucky Star (peaked at #4)
    3. Crazy For You (first #1)
    4. Like A Virgin (second #1)
    5. Material Girl (peaked at #2)
    6. Angel (peaked at #5)
    7. Dress You Up (peaked at #5)
    8. Live To Tell (third #1)
    9. Papa Don’t Preach (fourth #1)
