Nick Kamen – Each Time You Break My Heart (US 12″)

Burning The Ground Exclusive 1986

An Auditory Gem From The BTG Archives!
NEW 2021 Transfer!
Meticulously Remastered!

Originally posted July 21, 2014

“Each Time You Break My Heart” is a 1986 song recorded by singer Nick Kamen. It was his debut single from his album Nick Kamen, released in 1987. The song achieved success in many European countries, including Ireland, Italy, UK, Swiss, and in the U.S. it was a top-five hit on the dance charts.

Written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray, it also cracked both the U.S. dance chart (remix by Shep Pettibone) and the Top 50 in Canada. Madonna had originally written and recorded the song for her “True Blue” album, but it did not make the cut. Her original version remains unreleased officially but has leaked onto the internet. It is almost identical in melody and structure to Kamen’s version.

Nick Kamen – Nobody Else (Special Arthur Baker Dub Mix) (UK 12″)

Burning The Ground Exclusive 1987

“Nobody Else” was the second single released in the US and the third in the UK from Nick Kamen’s self-titled debut album. Even with several remixes by Jellybean and Arthur Baker, the single failed to chart in the US. The single did chart internationally peaking at #47 in the UK, #19 in Ireland, and #97 in Italy.

The b-side track “Any Day Now” was written by Burt Bacharach and Bob Hilliard in 1962. It has been recorded by numerous artists over the years, including notable versions by Chuck Jackson in 1962, Alan Price in 1965, Elvis Presley in 1969, and Ronnie Milsap in 1982. In 1987 Kamen recorded it for his debut album.
