On 2 May 1987, 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)' was released as a single worldwide. The song had been serviced to radio about 3-4 weeks before and Whitney had also performed the song during her 1986 Greatest Love world tour. It was one of the biggest radio events of 1987.
Hopefully we can use this thread to discuss our memories of the song and that era (for those of us 'lucky' enough to be that old...) as well as articles/facts/info about the song.
I shared the advert below on Classic Whitney Facebook the other day - a teaser ad in Record Mirror the week before the single was released. manish.
