Today In Madonna History: March 6, 1986


On March 6, 1986, Madonna and George Harrison hold a press conference at Kensington Roof Gardens, London, England to discuss the filming of Shanghai Surprise; when asked by a reporter to apologize for her and Sean’s behavior towards the British press, Madonna answers: “I have nothing to apologize for”.

You have to stick it out to the end of the video to hear George Harrison’s “Shanghai Surprise.” It’s one of those 80′s songs you can’t get out of your head!

Here are some of the lyrics:

But i’m ready.
You must be crazy… crazy…
And you got no money… money…
But you’re a tryer…

My straits are dire from the wok into the fire,
I’d like to meet you but i’ve broken my chopstick.
Sometimes there’s no hope in, in chasing promises,
I wanna love you though it could prove to be unwise,
Shanghai surprise.

Today In Madonna History: March 2, 1985


On March 2, 1985, Madonna’s first single from the Vision Quest soundtrack, “Crazy For You”, is released.

“Crazy For You” later appeared on Madonna’s greatest hits collection, “The Immaculate Collection.” It was also included on her greatest ballads collection, “Something To Remember” and later on her career spanning hit collection, “Celebration.”


Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smokey air
Can’t you feel the weight of my stare
You’re so close but still a world away
What I’m dying to say, is that

I’m crazy for you
Touch me once and you’ll know it’s true
I never wanted anyone like this
It’s all brand new, you’ll feel it in my kiss
I’m crazy for you, crazy for you

Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I’m deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you’ll see

It’s all brand new, I’m crazy for you
And you know it’s true
I’m crazy, crazy for you
