The Charts

Unequaled

September 01, 1996

Like an Energizer bunny, Alanis Morissette's debut collection of songs, "Jagged Little Pill," keeps on going and going and going . . . . The album sold 121,000 copies, maintaining its top slot on the national sales chart. But it was eclipsed on The Times' Southern California chart by Latin pop sensation Luis Miguel's "Nada Es Igual," which means, fittingly, "Nothing Is Equal." Meanwhile, Los Del Rio's irresistable dance hit "Macarena" sashayed its way to the top of the singles chart for the fifth straight week and Toni Braxton's "Secrets" album grabbed the first-place spot on the R&B chart.
