I haven't listened to the Weekly Top 40 in quite a while. Here's a listing of non-charting Sure Shots from the notes that I do have (apologies if some of these have already been posted). I listened the WT40 pretty regularly from '92 to '94. I headed off to college in the fall of '94, so my records are pretty spotty after that. In the early '00s, I pretty much gave up on the WT40 all-together.
It's pretty interesting to see what odd singles the WT40 crew genuinely believed would be hits.

i think celeine got to around 27 with ANDHC. anyway i can think of looking for a place to land by dakota moon, and tyrese's i like them girls was a SS on the 1st week of may and debuted the second week of august!
"Looking For A Place To Land" would probably have made the Rick Dees chart if they had synchronized it with R&R on a different week. On the R&R chart for February 1, 2002 the song was at number 40. That's the chart that would have been used on the Rick Dees show on February 16, since they were two weeks behind, like they had been since July, 1994. Well, February 16, 2002 happened to be the week that they jumped ahead to be only one week behind R&R, like AT40. This means that they had to skip a chart and the February 1 chart was the one they skipped. Hence, "Looking For A Place To Land" was never heard on the Rick Dees show, yet it hit the R&R chart for a week. While it's true that Rick Dees shut out some songs that made the R&R chart, those were usually rap songs. "Looking For A Place To Land" was far from being that.
Wasn't "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" by Clivilles & Cole a Sure Shot one time? I don't think that made it.
You are correct.
Also, that mash-up by Pink Vs. E.L.O.
Was that on the Number One Hits special that was broadcast back in early July and again earlier this year? I don't think it was the Sure Shot. It was one of his number one songs in 2002. The show was not a countdown; he just played songs that hit number one on his chart over the past four years.
