NOTE:  Sideshow by The Stylistics is listed in the A List in Maddy's. However, as has since been pointed out, the Stylistics never recorded the song. Blue Magic did. That version was nominated by webcorewebcore.  The correct group and credit has been entered above.  Changes in other relevant pages have also been made.
