Forty years ago this week, Romeo by Mr Big was at its highest position of number 4 in the UK singles chart for the second of two non-consecutive weeks. It had entered the top 40 five weeks previously at number 30 and broke into the top 10 three weeks later. The song spent a total of four weeks in the top 10 and then slipped into the lower top 40 for the final three weeks of its chart life.
