"Uptown Top Ranking" (1978) is a single by Althea and Donna, produced by Joe Gibbs based on the riddim of the Alton Ellis' song "I'm Still In Love" of 1967. It was released on the Lightning record label.

"Uptown Top Ranking" reached number one in the UK singles chart in February, 1978, after early championing by John Peel, but had only one week at the chart summit. Oddly the surprise was compounded by the act often being billed as "Althia & Donna", and the song sometimes entitled slightly differently, as "Up Town Top Ranking". The track was written by the duo and Errol Thompson.
