WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Venom: Let There Be Carnage easily tops the chart with 90.1MM, beating Black Widow as the biggest debut of the pandemic era (though the Venom sequel was not also streaming).  It also beat the original Venom's 80.2MM pre-pandemic debut.  The Addams Family 2 placed with 18MM, which is pretty solid given that it was also available through VOD.  Shang-Chi showed with 6MM on a 54 percent drop, likely due to competition from Venom 2The Many Saints of Newark came in fourth with 5MM, probably a notch below expectations for the Sopranos prequel, but perhaps more evidence that older viewers are going to be tough to lure back to theaters when it also debuted on HBOMax.

...with THE GO-GOs!  They made history as the first all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts. Kind of a hard band to place seasonally. Their debut, Beauty and the Beat, which yielded hits like "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got the Beat," as well as great album cuts like "This Town," "Lust to Love," "Tonite" and "How Much More," came out in late Summer 1981, iirc, and "Lips" was climbing the charts that Fall, so I mentally place the band in this time of year. And it's still warm enough that the title track to the too-quick sophomore album, "Vacation," -- or their cover of the Capitols' "Cool Jerk" -- doesn't sound too out of place. "Get Up and Go" was also a single from that LP, but it didn't make the Top 40.  The band would chart twice more -- in 1984, with "Head Over Heels" and "Turn to You" -- before splitting and the near-inevitable reunion tours.
