"Nothing but a Heartache" is a pop hit originally released on the Deram Records label in November 1968 by South Carolina trio The Flirtations. Produced by Wayne Bickerton and co-written by Bickerton and Tony Waddington — the British songwriting/producing duo later responsible for the 1970s successes of The Rubettes — "Nothing But a Heartache" just missed the UK Top 50, peaking at 51.[citation needed] However the track reached the Top 40 in both the Netherlands (#36) and in the US, where it spent two weeks at #34 in late May 1969 during what was then considered a lengthy 14-week run on Billboard's Hot 100 – especially for a hit that did not reach the top 30.[1] In late April the single reached #3 in Boston on WRKO-AM.[2] In Australia it charted at #97.[citation needed]
