BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

a-front

“Our House” is a song by English ska and pop band Madness. It was released as the lead single from their fourth studio album, The Rise & Fall, on 12 November 1982. The song charted within the top ten in multiple countries and won Best Pop Song at the May 1983 Ivor Novello Awards.

Released in November 1982, it peaked at #5 in the UK singles chart. In 1983, “Our House” was their biggest hit in the US, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. On the US dance chart the song peaked at #21.

Though Madness produced many successful singles over a period of 20 years especially in their native United Kingdom, the enormous American popularity of “Our House” means that they are often regarded as a one hit wonder in the US (though their version of “It Must Be Love” also subsequently entered the US top 40).
