BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Where Did Your Heart Go?” is a song written by American musicians David Was and Don Was. The song was first recorded and released by the writers’ disco-dance-rock ensemble Was (Not Was).

“Where Did Your Heart Go?” was covered by the British pop duo Wham! in June 1986 as one of the three B-sides to “The Edge of Heaven” in the UK, where it reached #1. The song was also released separately as Wham!’s final single in several territories most notably in the US where it peaked at #50 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1986. It was produced and re-arranged by George Michael with engineering by Chris Porter. In common with most Wham! songs, Andrew Ridgeley’s contribution is notable by its absence, though he receives a co-writing credit for its b-side: “Wham Rap ’86”. “Where Did Your Heart Go?” was also included on the albums Music from the Edge of Heaven and The Final.

    Wasn’t aware of this single edit. Thanks for this rarity (in my eyes). I think we have mostly all Wham! singles by now or are there still some singles/versions left to be posted to complete the Wham! catalogue?
