POP MUSIC CHARTS

Dinosaur Power

September 19, 1993

Barney, the lovable dinosaur who's been ruling the kidvid range, has branched out to new turf with an album, "Barney's Favorites Vol. 1." Remarkably, it's romping to No. 10 on its first week on the Times' Southern California pop album chart. How do you think artists like U2, Rod Stewart and Sting feel about being outsold not just by a kiddie album--but one featuring a singing dinosaur? "Black Sunday," Cypress Hill's ode to pot-smoking, is still the most popular rap album, topping the rap chart and placing No. 8 on the pop chart.
