“Each Time You Break My Heart” was a song released by UK model / singer Nick Kamen featuring Madonna on backing vocals. It was his debut single from his self-titled album, Nick Kamen which was released in 1987. The song achieved success in many European countries, including Ireland, Italy, UK, Swiss and the U.S. where it was a top five dance hit thanks to Madonna remix partner, Shep Pettibone. The song was written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray (who touched everything Madonna did in the 80′s).
In case you didn’t know already, 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 (see below).
The Japanese promo 7″ sent to the DJ was released in unique black and white custom picture sleeve featuring Madonna and Nick Kamen in a studio (see above). This was also the 7″ that they sold in the US. The 12″ version contained three versions of the song with the same cover and the image on back was the same as the 7″ the front was the image that I posted below the fold.
