On January 8 1983, Everybody peaked at number-three on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. It would remain locked in that position for three weeks before quickly descending. Then known as Hot Dance/Disco, it was Madonna’s first appearance on the chart that she continues to rule today, with a total of 50 number-one hits under her belt (as of 2020).
Long live the Dancing Queen!
Was lucky to find a 12″ vinyl about 3 years ago for around $50. It’s the gem of my limited collection. Kicking myself I never bought the German CD single back in the 90s that was on import in my local Aus store back in the day but was a poor student and $15.00 was a bit much back then. Really hope we get a digital EP with all the mixes of it next year or have them included on the Madonna album re-issue.
Everybody is a wonderful song and with that aspect, the history of rock & roll was changed once more by Madonna.
