Daily Boom 80's Throwback: The Jets- 'Cross My Broken Heart'


Cross my broken heart, boy
Swear, I'll never part from you
I want you to be mine

I know you think I'm not
Your picture perfect jewel
And let us break apart
When everything was cool

I needed to explore
And open up the door
But now I need you more

Today we're going back in time to the summer of 1987. Beverly Hills Cop 2 had just blasted into theaters and while it may not have been as fantastic as the original, it did serve up a great soundtrack. The Jets, a family band out of Minnesota had already had a string of hits when they brought us "Cross My Broken Heart". It was the first single off of their second album and did really well, reaching number seven on Billboard's Hot 100.

More importantly, the song got tons of radio play and was a really big dance hit. While the Wolfgramm family eventually became best known for some of their ballads (like "Make It Real"), songs like "Cross My Broken Heart" were really a lot of fun and still get plenty of play on satellite radio. As for The Jets, they are still performing together and you can often catch them out there as part of the Freestyle Explosion tour.
