Nick Kamen – Each Time You Break My Heart (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on July 21st, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Each Time You Break My Heart” is a 1986 song recorded by singer Nick Kamen. It was his debut single from his album Nick Kamen, released in 1987. The song achieved success in many European countries, including Ireland, Italy, UK, Swiss, and in the U.S. it was a top five hit on the dance charts.

Written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray, it also cracked both the U.S. dance chart (remix by Shep Pettibone) and the Top 50 in Canada. Madonna had originally written and recorded the song for her “True Blue” album, but it did not make the cut. Her original version remains unreleased officially, but has leaked onto the internet. It is almost identical in melody and structure to Kamen’s version.
