Liza Minnelli – Losing My Mind (US 12″)

“Losing My Mind” is a song written by Stephen Sondheim originally for the 1971 musical Follies for the character of a former showgirl, Sally Durant Plummer. The song became a popular top ten hit for singer and actress Liza Minnelli in 1989 on the UK Singles chart and in Europe. The song has been covered by many artists.

In the UK Singles Chart, the most successful version has been by American singer and actress Liza Minnelli, reaching number six. It was the lead single from her 1989 studio album, Results, produced by Pet Shop Boys and Julian Mendelsohn. The 12″ release peaked at number eleven on the Billboard Maxi Singles Sales chart. It also peaked at number twenty-six on the American dance chart.

The Pet Shop Boys demo version of “Losing My Mind” (which has Neil Tennant singing the vocal) was later remixed and released as a B-side on the Pet Shop Boys’ single, “Jealousy”. This demo version contains a scream that Minnelli opted not to include on her release.

Taylor Dayne – Tell It To My Heart (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 5th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Tell It to My Heart” is a song performed by American singer Taylor Dayne, released as her first single from her first album of the same name in late 1987. The single was Dayne’s first major exposure, and she soon became known for her up-tempo, dance-oriented music.

The song was written by Chappell Music staff songwriter Seth Swirsky and Ernie Gold. Swirsky almost didn’t deliver the song to his publisher after he and his girlfriend decided it was not good enough.

“Tell It To My Heart” reached Taylor Dayne when Dayne contacted Chappell Music and asked to be sent some demos which had been overlooked, although the song had been recorded in early 1987 by Louisa Florio for a self-titled Canadian album release. Dayne recalled feeling an immediate affinity with the song: “I thought there was something about the hook – it’s a happy hook.” The track was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, Long Island. The track took off so unexpectedly in the fall of 1987 that Taylor was forced to complete her debut album at Cove City Sound in six weeks. Swirsky would also write, along with Arnie Roman, Dayne’s follow-up single “Prove Your Love”. For almost two months, only the 12-inch record of “Tell It to My Heart” with four mixes was available for purchase. That 12-inch sold 900,000 copies alone.

Dayne was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal, Female for her performance on “Tell It to My Heart” in 1988. Producer Ric Wake said in a 1994 interview with Vibe magazine that Tell It To My Heart “really blew people away”. Commenting on Taylor Dayne’s voice he said “They thought she was, like, black or some kind of ethnic…”.

“Tell It to My Heart” appeared in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 the week of 14 November 1987, rising to #39 from #43. Ten weeks later, during the week of January 23, 1988, the single peaked in the number seven spot. The song was on the Hot 100 for 26 weeks. The song was also a top five dance hit in the U.S. reaching #4.

In the UK, “Tell It To My Heart” reached #3. It was ranked as the 23rd best-selling single of 1988 in the UK.

In 1995, “Tell It to My Heart'” was remixed and re-released to promote Dayne’s Greatest Hits package. This version climbed to #23 on the UK Singles Chart.
