Oh well, they messed it before, when they added (I Just) Died in Your Arms
by Cutting Crew to the Radio of Vice City'86, though the song is from '87.
Hit songs are usually played on the radio before the album release, and sometimes the release between the single and album with the single on it are pretty distant and songs are usually credited under the date of the album release primarily. I'm sure they did their research.
