Her first disc was the Lou Pace-produced 1986 album, Perfect Timing, and over the next few years she launched several hits on the US Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart.

    This song just came back to my memory after all these years. I haven't heard it since the 80's. This video shows and sounds exactly what was going on in the 80's. The. people are dressed as what was once called "fresh"

    I remember this song from the time I was drunk on the 15Third MUNI in San Francisco at 2:00 a.m. The black girls were sitting in the back of the bus with the radio and discussing details. "He said to me, I want you to have my baby." "You can keep on wantin'!"

    Here in the UK, this record came out April 1987 and reached Number 8 on the charts. Takes me right back to being a care free 13 year old again! Sadly it never gets played on BBC Radio 2.. a shame, as its a great 80's pop record.

    The jerkiness of DA's dance was caused by her extremely illfitting apparel.
    Whether that was her choice or dictated by the diskery, I myself fail to really/truly know.

    Many of you are complaining about how awful the video is. Well, despite the 80's being the decade of the music video, vocals and whether or not you could sing was still important. Donna was an incredible singer. In 2017, its the opposite. Great videos featuring lousy singers who couldn't sing on key if their lives depended on it.

      i was a little young and i dont know if i saw the video before this, but i heard it on the radio and bought the 45rpm single immediately. so i have always had that image for this song. but i love the video. the 80s was more empowering to women than people give it credit for. i love how at the end they all leave the joker who burned her.
