Continuing my celebration of this great year in music, we move to February. I will just highlight some of my favorite albums that were released that month. During this month we saw releases from Til Tuesday with "Voices Carry."Great debut album, my favorite track was not the title song, but "Looking Over My Shoulder." Tears for Fears released their second album "Songs From The Big Chair." To my every song on that album is great, but my favorite track is "Head Over Heels." The video is fun and shows a lighter side to the band. Also Mick Jagger released his solo debut "She's the Boss". "Just Another Night" was a hit song from that album.
There were a couple of movie soundtracks released that month from "The Breakfast Club" and "Vision Quest". "The Breakfast Club Soundtrack" included the hit song from Simple Minds called "Don't You (Forget About Me)." "The Vision Quest Soundtrack" included a hit song from Madonna "Crazy For You."
The most notable album release is from the late Whitney Houston. "Whitney Houston" was her debut album and it became the best selling debut album from a female artist of all time. This album had a ton of hits "How Will I Know," "Greatest Love of All," "You Give Good Love." I remember seeing the video for "You Give Good Love" for the first time and saying to my friends "That's the girl from Seventeen Magazine! Now she's singing!" You can watch my favorite song "Saving All My Love For You" below.
