Break Every Rule was the follow up the hugely successful Private Dancer album. Break Every Rule peaked at #6 and sold over a million copies in America. This also launched her first "farewell" tour in 1987. The tour played to over 5 million people, and did over 250 concerts worldwide.
The first track, Typical Male, was the biggest hit of of the album peaking at #2 for 3 weeks. Its a great piece of bubble gum pop, with its catchy chorus. What You Get Is What You See was also a hit peaking at #13. It's a pop/country tune. Two People is a soft ballad that hit the charts at #26.
One of my personal favorites is Afterglow. Its got a great back back, & the song has a good message I think. Back Where You Started is Tina at her most rock. Its a get back, revenge type of song that fits great with her life. She won the Best Rock Performance Female Grammy for this underlooked classic. The title track of the album has always been one of my favorites. It was released as a single but fizzled at #76.
The album ends with a great combination of Paradise Is Here, & I"ll Be Thunder. Great songs that will leave you remebering this album. In the eighties Tina released 3 LP's. Private Dancer, Break Every Rule, & Foriegn Affiar. Each one better than the one before, and unfortunatly, least successful. I perosnally think everyone should have these 3 albums, as they are great, underated rock classic albums.
