Taking triple M to task again.... How do you remember September 1989?

CURRENT MOOD: Rejuvenated
Well, just came back from swimming, and missed out on most of their imaginary chart tonight, but managed to catch their top five of September 1989.  Again, it's another shocker, with only one correct and four wrong.  Straight to the point and here we go....

Triple M's Cold 30 Countdown - September 1989
Aired Friday 4th May 2007
Pn# Track Artist/Group (correct chart date) Label Cat No.
5. Onion skin Boom Crash Opera (19 Jun 1989) WEA 7-257572
4. Patience Guns 'n' Roses (29 May 1989 Geffen 7-22996
3. Dumb things Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls (30 Jan 1989) Mushroom K 676
2. Love shack The B-52's (20 Nov 1989) Reprise 7-22817
1. Poison Allice Cooper (4 Sep 1989) CBS 655061-7
Note that "love shack" from the B-52's wasn't even released yet, and well, Paul Kelly's "Dumb things".....? that had already charted in February-March and was long gone.  The Gunners did well with Patience, and with giving triple M the Benefit of the doubt here, (if they did do some research), that song might have just still been in the bottom of the ARIA chart.  The song was long gone from my chart, as there was little air-play of this song during September, when compared to all the other tracks on the below chart, again, taken from my personal archives.

I remember that Gyan, Roy Orbison and Roxette were hammered into you, harder then a sledge hammer back then, particularly on 2SM, 2UW and on 2WS.
