Did GH/L&L tarnish "Rise" by Herb Alpert?

We know what GH did for "Baby Come To Me". How long was it off the charts before being resurrected due to the show - about a year if I'm not mistaken. It shot to #1 and stayed there.
Friends and Lovers is another song that shot to the top of the charts due to a soap.
So I have to wonder about Rise. I was really young during the LL incident (trying not to veer off topic) so I am just curious about why no other shows used this song (if that was possible). It was very sexy and popular, but I can't help but believe GH might have had a negative impact.
Does anyone else know better?

So, to answer your question, no, that song isn't tarnished in my eyes. It may hold more than one meaning, but I can't say that I am nauseated when I hear it.

I've always wondered if Herb Alpert himself was bothered about the song being used in this context. He may have just been happy the show gave it more exposure than it ever would have gotten otherwise.
