Into the Groove

Into the Groove by Madonna was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, August 3, 1985 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song from the film Desperately Seeking Susan was Madonna's first UK #1 hit. It was never released as a single in the US, however, where it remains one of the best-known B-sides of the '80s, since radio stations played the song anyway. In America, it was issued as the B-side of "Angel," which many folks bought to get "Into The Groove." As a result, "Angel" went to #5 in the US despite a lackluster reception. This song about the sheer exhilaration of dance merged the underground dance scene into pop. It was voted Song of the 1980s by Billboard readers. Madonna admitted to Rolling Stone that she is "not a good judge of what things are going to be huge or not." She added that with this song she felt "retarded" singing it, "but everybody seems to like it."
