On August 3 1985, Madonna’s Into The Groove hit #1 in the UK and Holiday hit #2 in the UK – Madonna is the only female artist ever to occupy the top 2 positions simultaneously on the UK charts.

  1. How “Into the Groove” was not released as a single in the US is crazy. I remember the summer of 85 and hearing “Into the Groove” continually played on the radio and on MTV. Ironically though, I don’t remember ever hearing “Angel.” I wish the US had rereleased the Like a Virgin album with Into the Groove on it, like they did in Europe.

  2. As it should be! The U.S. record company really blew it on this one. It was a smash hit even without a proper single release. The B-side to Angel? ITG was a much stronger track. Still love me some Angel as well. ITG is still my favorite M song ever.
