6th January 1987

It's 3 weeks on top for Madonna as Slade get a post-christmas high entry at 2, a new peak for the track 13 years late in one of it's many festive appearances until I got so sick of it I can't bear charting it any more. I've not gone mad, oldies only made my charts if they made the UK singles chart, at the time, and Slade sneaked in in the published charts over the Christmas period, so the delay is due to that.

Elkie Brooks gets her first top 10 since Sunshine After The Rain a decade earlier, David Cassidy has a live EP of his biggest 70's UK singles enter at 17, and by this time I was well into 70's nostalgia, the lead track turning out to be the under-appreciated (by me) version of How Can I Be Sure, now one of my all-time fave records and better even then Dusty's version (the roiginal 1972 studio version that is, not this live cover).

Little Richard is back with his first ballad to make my charts, 30 years since his heyday predating me never mind my charts! Siouxsie covers This Wheel's On Fire nicely, albeit not as classic as the original, for 9 years of hits, Swing Out Sister get a soundalike follow-up, UB40 change lead vocalist for the rat in the iamspamspamami Dead Or Alive keep the string of SAW-pop hits coming 2 years on, The Bangles sneak in with a lesser track, and Lou Reed covers Sam n Dave's Soul Man, and brings along Sam to boot...

In my chart "Open Your Heart" wasn't # 1, but spent some weeks at # 2 behind "Keep Each Other Warm" and Lulu - My Boy Lollipop.

My favourite single from 1987 year with 5 weeks on the top : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHSUVnmPxFE

laugh.gif Good song though!

'Something In My House' by Dead Or Alive is great, much better than any of their other singles since 'You Spin Me'.

And one of the last 'proper' Hi-NRG productions from SAW, they would go more towards cheesy dance-pop by mid 1987.

Oh this is the same song that Berri had a hit with in 1995! (which heavily sampled the instrumental of 'I Feel Love')

I didn't know the Berri version was a cover until recently.

Open Your Heart is my least liked of Madonna's singles from True Blue. Much prefer the title track, Live To Tell and La Isla Bonita.

Good to see you have started 1987, quite a few big 80s anthems I really like from that year, my favourites would be Living In A Box, It's A Sin, You're The Voice, True Faith and Criticize, looking forward to see where they chart in your personal charts!
