Love....

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.

this tune. It's so lovely and was so different from anything on her poptastic first album. The layered choir and vocals tradeoff in the middle with the crescendo makes me tingle every time.
