    The classic charity anthem "We Are The World" reached no. 1 on this date 30 years ago, but it was far from when the single debuted: It took more than three months for the song—which featured Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Lionel Richie and many more—to climb up to the no. 1 spot. That's far from the longest a single has had to wait before it arrived at no. 1 on the Hot 100 however. John Legend, Creed and UB40 know a thing or two about waiting.

One thing that hasn't necessarily gotten better as the films have progressed: The soundtrack albums. Music Times ranks the seven film companion albums from worst rides to best.
