On January 7 1995, Take A Bow slid to #21 on the UK Singles chart after reaching a peak of #16 on December 24th, 1994.
While Take A Bow remains her longest-running #1 hit in the US, its disappointing UK chart performance marked an end to Madonna’s spectacular run of 35 consecutive top-ten UK singles from 1984’s Like A Virgin to 1994’s Secret. Take a bow, indeed!
Take a Bow is Madonna at her absolute and brilliant best-a beautiful ballad about gaining knowledge and truth and one of the best #1 hits of all time and is dedicated with love to my longtime friend Danielle Davis!
Wasn’t a huge hit in Australia either. Too saccharine
