I'm about 40 minutes into it, and i have a couple questions.

First, I'm not sure they're in strict chronological order. For example,
Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl" is followed immediately by the Eagles' "Hotel
California." Could someone who's a bit more familiar with 70's/early 80s
pop confirm/deny this? (Perhaps I'm just misrememebring....)

Secondly, are all of these #1's? I mean, I just heard the disco version of
the Star Wars theme.... was that a #1? Again, I'm not overly knowledgable
on this stuff.
