Too Many Broken Hearts was Jason Donovan's third single release and first solo No.1 single
in the UK - his previous single Especially For You reached No.1 but was a
duet with Kylie Minogue - and stayed at the top for 2 weeks in March
1989. In Australia the song peaked at #7.
You may have guessed that the song was produced by Stock, Aitken
& Waterman, who also produced Kylie's earlier work. The track
featured on the album Ten Good Reasons which became the
biggest-selling album of 1989, shifting 1.5 million copies.
During the 80's the Australian singer and actor had six top 5 singles in the UK. The
ex-Neighbours actor has achievedfour #1 singles overall, with the other two being
Sealed With a Kiss (1989) and Any Dream Will Do (1991) from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
