This 12″ is the alternate UK 12″ containing House Mixes of “Prove Your Love” & “Tell It To My Heart” both from Taylor Dayne’s debut album.

“Prove Your Love” was Dayne’s second U.S. Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the spring of 1988, where it peaked at #7. The song spent eleven weeks in the Top 40.

    Paul, you are on a roll. I´ve been bad on the commenting, and I really wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the work you do and the generosity of sharing. There is a definite love in this task, and it shows.
    Once again, thank you. And keep those Taylors coming! Any chance you have any Don’t rush me mixes?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Gus you are so very welcome. It is nice to see your comment. I think I have the US 12″ of “Don’t Rush Me” I will see what I can do for you 🙂

    Hi Paul,

    You’re back in full force for the last week of the year. And what a way to start that week…
    The house mix of tell it to my heart has “New Years Eve Party” written all over it. One of my all time favorite dance/house tracks.
    I have the German cd-single of this, which (strangely) has the original extended mix of “prove your love” , the house mix of tell it…, and a beautiful ballad called “I’ll always love you”
    Thanks Paul and happy holidays to you and the ones you love.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Trikke I agree this one does scream “New Years Eve Party” I hope that someone will use it for that purpose. Cheers and Happy Holidays to you too!

    Thank you Paul!!! I think this house version of “Tell It To My Heart” is awesome!! Love the piano solo, so hot. I had the 12″ back in the day and really happy to have it in quality flac form.

    Happy Holidays!!



    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Victor. I love the synth part that starts at around 7:20 I think 🙂 Happy Holidays!


    Victor Reply:

    Yeah… That part was great too. (Actually the whole song is great) I played it at a retro party few years ago and I can clearly remember seeing EVERYBODY was crazy about this track. Dancing and singing!

    The perfect post for your “comeback”!

    When Tell It To My Heart debuted in late 87, I was immediately hooked! The urgency of the freestyle beat, the ferocity in the vocals, the in-your-face demand for your love eternal true!

    One of my prized 12″s and it is firmly in my Top 3 for that year, but such an atrocity that it didn’t hit #1 on the Club Play charts! Even till this day, who could resist moving a bone when this came on the dance floor or on the radio?

    Prove Your Love is a worthy second single, but not as original.

    Still, Arista back in the late 80s to the early 90s is not just about Whitney Houston. Taylor Dayne and Expose, with their string of seven consecutive Top 10s, did contribute to the annual bonuses of the staff I’m sure!

    Thanks for your post-Christmas bonus here, Paul!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Ric. I remember back when this single came out I was all over it, I played it to death. Taylor was huge in those days it seemed like evey single became a hit. i am sure the label staff loved her for helping to line their pockets.

    I was fortunate enough to have acquired the house mixes of “Prove Your Love” and “Tell It To My Heart” on cd format back in the day. Both mixes were played in heavy rotation. I also used to play the acapella of “Holiday Rap” over the “Tell It To My Heart” house mix, then segue into the movie house mix of Madonna’s “Causing A Commotion” …. the house was just jumping! Great memories from the DJ box!


  7. MusicMan3 Says:

    Thank you Paul!! This is a GREAT post! Happy New Years to you!
