Looking up information on worldwide chart positions of songs that I love, it is always a buzz to see that some songs charted the highest in Ireland. In 1991 Martika's Love...Thy Will Be Done got to number 8 here. It was a number 10 hit in the US and number 9 in the UK. Ireland was the song's second highest chart position as it was also a number one in Australia which is v lovely. Love...Thy Will Be Done followed great Martika's singles like Toy Soldiers and I Feel The Earth Move. The album it came from was called Martika's Kitchen and it's title track was v poppy and crazy. It was written by Prince and also by Martika so I assume that is why it is still on Youtube. I have always liked her name. If I ever had children (not!) I would name them Martika and Solange Minogue. They would stand out in the telephone directory. Incidentally, Sandra Bernhard had a very funny Martika moment in her glorious Without You I'm Nothing performance movie. Does anyone remember it! Here's the video for Love...Thy Will Be Done.
