“Sidewalk Talk” is a single by American record producer John “Jellybean” Benitez, released in 1984 by EMI Records. The song was originally written by Madonna during the beginning of her career and given to Jellybean in 1985, as he was a collaborator with her during this time.

The artist credit of this recording is Jellybean, with vocals from Catherine Buchanan (nicknamed “Catt”) acknowledged on the disc sleeve. Madonna’s writing credit is on the cover of the single, and shares vocals on the chorus and solos on some verses. “Sidewalk Talk” reached the #1 position on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart on February 1, 1986. It was a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #18. “Sidewalk Talk” made an appearance in the 1999 film Flawless and its soundtrack album.
