Anyone Who Had a Heart" is a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) for Dionne Warwick in 1963. In January 1964, Warwick's original recording hit the Top Ten in the United States, Canada, Spain, Netherlands, South Africa, Belgium and Australia. In the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and New Zealand, Warwick's recording lost out to a cover version by Cilla Black.
No way this band had another hit besides Walking On Sunshine, you scream in protest? Actually, they had two- Do You Want Crying ( US, 1985) and That’s The Way ( US, 1989). The band had minor MTV hits with Sex (I’m . and Metro before scoring a . hit with No More Words in 1984- also from a (slightly less successful) film, Vision Quest. No More Words was re-released after charting in its own right as the B-Side to that movie’s theme song, Crazy For You by Madonna. Because the title track to their 1987 album Pop Goes The World was on the charts for almost as many weeks (twenty) as The Safety Dance (twenty-four), charted at number 20, and- get this- when you hear it, you’ll recognize it. It’s nearly as ubiquitous and catchy as their signature tune, but if you knew this was a Men Without Hats song, we will eat our hats in tribute to you and the band.
Some have the same trivia-question status of a true one-hit wonder. Some are acts for whom the lack of a hit single became well beside the point. When the follow-up single, Nasty Girl, emerged in fall ’82, Prince hadn’t yet broken through at pop radio, but his 1999 album was already becoming a fall book event for Urban. Say what you will about the conservatism of Cincinnati, but that market’s WKRQ (Q102) was one of the few pop stations that played Nasty Girl at the time. Both Vanity and her Prince-appointed successor Apollonia had chart records during the subsequent purple reign, but nothing of that magnitude. And it was really Sheena Easton who got the true Nasty Girl follow-up with Sugar Walls.
The list of Rock Legends Who Never Had a No. 1 Single is all the more surprising when you consider the success so many of them had by any other measure. They've sold million of albums, had videos in wall-to-wall rotation, sold out football stadiums across the globe, won Grammys and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. These were album-oriented artists, rather than radio fixtures. For others, however, the mystery is how songs that were played – and, in fact, are still played – with such mind-numbing regularity on the radio somehow didn't reach the top of the chart. Our focus on the Billboard Top 100 list means that some acts that had far greater success overseas will get lumped in. There are also solo acts here who had No. 1 songs with their former bands.
Everyone can agree that Ras Kass is a great lyricist. He’s always had a cocky attitude that made him seem convinced that he was the greatest rapper ever. Too bad he couldn’t find the greatest producers. His first two albums were marred by shitty production unworthy for a rapper of his talents. His second album was released shortly after his death but it only cemented his legacy as someone who was about to blow but never did. And spare us the whole But you don’t know about his underground classics! because as the great Zadie Smith points out, all those rare freestyles are easily found on YouTube.
When being interviewed around the release of Dig Out Your Soul, singer Liam Gallagher replied, At least there’s no Wonderwall on there. James Blunt Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images. You’re Beautiful was the third song from Blunt’s debut album and still remains his biggest hit, reaching No. 1 in the . and selling over 3 million copies stateside. As he once told Hello!
