Bracketology: 1985 Adult Contemporary singles, Champion

Even though the bottom half of the bracket wasn't as strong as I would have hoped, I think the Chicago song is still the best of the bunch.  Nonetheless, it can't beat Careless Whisper which not only wins this contest, it also achieved the following:
  • peaked at #8 on the Billboard R&B chart
  • spent 5 weeks atop the Billboard AC chart
  • spent 3 weeks atop the Billboard Top 100
  • topped the charts in no fewer than 8 countries worldwide
  • finished the year as Billboard's #1 song of 1985
