A song written by Pop group the Bee Gees proved to be a smash for Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton as “Islands in the Stream” sailed to the No.1 spot on this day in 1983.

The title comes from a novel by Ernest Hemingway and the song spent two weeks at the No.1 spot but eventually was crowned No.1 song of the year in 1983.

Both Kenny and Dolly have dabbled in acting; do you like them better as singers?  Leave a comment on facebook.
