Tell It To My Heart by Taylor Dayne on WLCY Radio Hits (1987)

Tell It To My Heart by Taylor Dayne on WLCY Radio Hits (1987)
This is WLCY Radio Hits and I'd like to share with you "Tell It To My Heart" a song performed by American singer Taylor Dayne, released as her first single from her first album of the same name in late 1987.

"Tell It to My Heart" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 during the week of October 10, 1987, at position #92, and entered the Top 40 of the chart the week of 14 November 1987, rising to #39 from #43. Ten weeks later, during the week of January 23, 1988, the single peaked in the number seven spot. The song was present on the Hot 100 for 25 weeks.

In the UK, "Tell It To My Heart" reached #3. It was ranked as the 23rd best-selling single of 1988 in the UK.

The song was written by Chappell Music staff songwriter Seth Swirsky and Ernie Gold. Swirsky almost didn't deliver the song to his publisher after he and his girlfriend decided it was not good enough.

"Tell It To My Heart" reached Taylor Dayne when Dayne contacted Chappell Music and asked to be sent some demos which had been overlooked, although the song had been recorded in early 1987 by Louisa Florio for a self-titled Canadian album release. Dayne recalled feeling an immediate affinity with the song: "I thought there was something about the hook – it's a happy hook." The track was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, Long Island. Dayne's father loaned her $6,000 to create the demo. The track took off so unexpectedly in the fall of 1987 that Taylor was forced to complete her debut album at Cove City Sound in eight weeks.
