  • Martika - Martika (1988)

    18 October 1988 Martika's debut album was released.

    Though 30 years old, it is still one of my alltime favorite albums.

    I had Water stuck in my head yesterday!
    Not one of my faves, but one of the first albums I bought. I remember thinking at the time that basically every song could have been a single, which I still believe.
    Faves: Toy soldiers, See if I care, Cross my heart

      I enjoyed "Coloured Kisses" which I think was from another album. I'm going to check out this one!

            ^ So did I.
            I think she couldn't handle fame and everything that comes with it.
            If she had gone on making records, she could have grown to become bigger.
            She wrote some beautiful songs. And her voice is very strong.
            She had a lot going for her.

              I used to spin this cd nonstop, was a great debut album!
              Martika said in various interviews she originally intended to take a few months break and come back, but the years
              passed by and she got married etc.
              In the past 2-3 years she's performing in 80s concerts along with former 80s stars.
              Last year I think she had a tour in Australia with Limahl.

                Her second album Martika's Kitchen is just as brilliant as her first album.
                I believe she toured the UK with other 80s stars after Australia.

                  Yes, I also have that one. Some of the songs Prince wrote for her. I'm not sure what happened after that as I don't have any more of her music.
                  It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
                  But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is

                    She quit making music for some time. Then she made an album called Oppera with her husband, which is such a different genre, I didn't like it at all. She started touring in 2016 (Australia/UK) with other 80s stars. She said in an interview it was the first time since the early 90s she sang her hits again.
