From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Soul Kiss is the thirteenth studio album by English-Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, which was released on October 25, 1985. It made No. 11 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart and the Top 30 on the United States Billboard 200. The album was produced by long-time associate John Farrar, who also co-wrote four tracks; the cover art includes photography of Newton-John by Helmut Newton and Herb Ritts.

Although the album was not as commercially successful as her previous efforts it made the Top 30 on the United States Billboard 200,[2] and was certified Gold by the RIAA in the US.[3] It charted at No. 5 in Japan; and peaked at No. 11 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart.[4]


The album's title track was released as a single and reached No. 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts,[2] as well as No. 20 on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart. It also reached number one in Norway.[4] It is Newton-John's most recent US Top 40 Pop single and her second-to-last in Canada. The single bubbled under on the UK Singles Chart at No. 100. It was also remixed into a 12" single mix, which featured a new Carib-influenced percussion overdub.

The follow-up single, "Toughen Up" (written for Tina Turner but rejected by her as inferior), failed to chart, except for a top 70 placement in Australia. [4] A remix by Jellybean Benitez was released as a 12” single in 1986.
