Divine – Hard Magic (1985)Document Transcript
Divine – Hard Magic (1985) Candlestick Chart Profits Training Series Harris Glenn Milstead (October 19, 1945 — March 7, 1988) was an American singer and actor best known by his drag persona Divine. In the 1980s, Divine released several dance music records which were club music hits in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. Divine’s records comprised synth-heavy Hi-NRG music, most of it composed, created, performed, and produced by Bobby Orlando. In the United States, Divine’s highest-charting songs were “Native Love”, peaking at #21 on the Club Play Singles chart, and “Shoot Your Shot” (a top 3 hit in the Dutch Charts), which reached #39 among Club Play Singles. Divine’s early UK releases on the Design Communications label included “Love Reaction” (which “borrowed” elements of New Order’s big hit “Blue Monday”), “Shake It Up”, and “Shoot Your Shot”. All of these releases were big gay club hits and minor mainstream chart hits. The Stock, Aitken & Waterman-produced song “You Think You’re A Man” was Divine’s most successful UK hit, reaching #16; the song was also a Top 10 hit in Australia, reaching #8 (thanks in part to a popular promotional tour in that country which included an appearance on the popular Australian music show Countdown.) Among the material Divine released on the Proto label in the United Kingdom was “I’m So Beautiful” (the follow-up single to “You Think You’re A Man”), “Walk Like A Man” and “Twistin’ the Night Away”.
