In 1987, a new wave band that was formed in the late seventies had their only charting hit from their only album. And in that time, Madonna (not yet famous, as she debuted in 1983) played drums and guitar in the band. The band would rehearse all through the night and eat breakfast together in a local diner, hence the name. Madonna left the band when she was not allowed to be the frontlady… this particular song was produced by Jimmy Iovine (producer at the time of U2, the Pretenders, and Bruce Springsteen), the background vocals were sung by Jocelyn Brown. And Madonna? She was furious… the song ended on number 7 in the US and number 54 in the UK. Enjoy
