BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

 

“Open Your Heart” is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna. It was released as the fourth single from her third studio album True Blue on November 12, 1986, by Sire Records.

“Open Your Heart” debuted at 51 the week ending December 6, 1986, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It had a gradual rise and subsequently peaked the chart on February 7, 1987 becoming Madonna’s fifth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single also had its success on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart reaching number-one on February 14, 1987. The single was Madonna’s sixth entry on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary chart where it reached a peak of 12.[19] In Canada, the song debuted at number 83 on the RPM chart on December 13, 1986, and reached a peak position of eight for the chart issue dated February 21, 1987. It placed at 68 on the RPM Year-end chart for 1987.

Internationally, it became a top ten hit in several European countries including the United Kingdom, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, and Belgium. In the United Kingdom, the single debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number eight and subsequently reached a peak of four on December 13, 1986. The single was on the chart for nine weeks in total, and was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on December 1, 1986. According to The Official Charts Company, the song has sold 195,000 copies there.

    Thanks for posting this, although all of these tracks are available on commercial CDs. Sadly, both the extended version and dub were slowed down from the tempo of the original album version, and with this the pitch was lowered as well. It would be awesome if you could post the 7″ remix edit.

    Ally sorry don’t have the 7″ at the moment. It is true that this was released on CD single in Germany in 1995 but now long out of print. I never thought that the German CD singles sounded that good myself they were very muffled and dull.

    I bought many of German CD singles as imports when Tower Records was selling them in 1995. I especially remember buying this one, because the CD came with a scratch on it, and I had to go back to the store and exchange it for another copy. The 24-bit vinyl rip sounds so much better than the CD, it’s like hearing the mix for the first time. I do not hear any pitch problems on this mix.

    Some PC players allow tempo and pitch control. Even if just by increasing the speed in VLC, it will sound better. Of course, it could be tweaked permanently in Soundbooth.

    I completely agree. Paul, your rip is so much more superior sounding than the 1995 CD single or the 1997 La Isla Bonita (Super Mix) CD compilation. Your version is so much more crisp. The versions on the CD singles sound muffled, it just never sounded right. Excellent job! 🙂
