On October 24 1987, Causing A Commotion climbed to its peak position of number-two in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100. It remained in the runner-up spot for three weeks, with Michael Jackson’s Bad blocking it from the top for the first two weeks and Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now overtaking it on the third.

The song was the second and final Madonna single from the Who’s That Girl soundtrack in North America, while some international markets were treated to a third single – the underrated ballad The Look Of Love.

  1. I’ve always wondered if “Causing A Commotion” would have hit #1 if the song had a video accompanying it. It’s a great song, although sounds a little dated today. The remix of the song is amazing too.

    And yes! “The Look of Love” is criminally under-rated. Too bad it didn’t get a second chance to shine on the Something to Remember album.

  2. CAC was a great dance track and was served deservingly. Number 2 for 3 weeks is nothing to scoff at! Wish “The Look of Love” had been released in the U.S. My favorite moment from the WTG tour!
