Anything for You (4:00)

Cover of 100 Hits of the '80s

From 100 Hits of the '80s and 72 other releases

“Anything for You” is a popular song and ballad written by Gloria Estefan and sung by Estefan and Miami Sound Machine. The song appeared on their 1987 album, Let It Loose. “Anything for You” became a number-one song in the United States summer of 1988; it was the band’s (and Gloria’s) first number-one and also saw a European first-release during the same period but failed to have the same impact there as the re-release in December 1988. It did top the Billboard magazine Hot 100 chart on May 14, 1988, and remained there for two weeks. Due to the success of the re-release of this signature song and the previous re-release in October 1988 from the single, “Can’t Stay Away from You,” outside North America the album Let It Loose saw a re-release named after the single: “Anything For You”. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart that same year. It also peaked at #3 on the Hot Latin Tracks on June 25, 1988. The B-side of the single was a Spanglish version of the song, with Estefan alternating the verses and chorus between English and Spanish.

In the UK, “Anything for You” was Gloria’s breakthrough hit. After the disappointing UK chart placings of previous singles, “Anything for You” was released in July 1988 and entered at #87. However, the song started a steady twelve week climb and finally reached a peak of #10 by September 1988. This gave Gloria the chance to release the uptempo follow up “1-2-3” just six weeks after and finally gave her two consecutive top ten hits.

Anything for you though you're not here
Since you said we're through, it seems like years
Time keeps draggin' on and on and forever's been and gone
Still I can't figure what went wrong
