Bluedreamer's Choice No 43

"Where Do Broken Hearts Go" is the fourth single from Whitney Houston's second album, Whitney. The ballad was released in March 1988. The song was written by Frank Wildhorn and Chuck Jackson. Wildhorn approached Jackson about the opportunity to write for Whitney Houston. He gave him the title, and Wildhorn completed the music & lyrics for the song. Initially, Houston did not want to record the song, feeling there was no special message to convey. However, Arista Records CEO Clive Davis believed the song would go to number one if she recorded it, so she agreed. The single became Houston's seventh consecutive number one. The music video (directed by Peter Israelson) features Houston breaking up with a boyfriend and reflecting on happy memories; asking herself the title question, "where do broken hearts go?" At the conclusion of the music video, the couple reunites. "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" was ranked thirty-third on The Billboard Hot 100 Year-End Charts (1988), and stayed on the chart for seventeen weeks. It was Houston's record-setting seventh consecutive number-one single on The Billboard Hot 100, number one on both the Hot 100 Single Sales chart and on the Hot 100 Airplay chart, and sixth on Adult Contemporary chart.
