One response

  1. All songs are brilliant but the pick of the bunch Has to Be The Look of Love. In all honesty, Madonna was at the Crossroads in 1987-One of her many farewells to the past! On the verge of 30-she was 29 at the time and ready to outgrow the teenage wannabes that were the target audience of The First Album, Like a Virgin and parts of True Blue-in the movie Who’s That Girl? was a make-or-break proposition. Underneath the youth facade was a once-and future Evita/Unapoologetic Bitch who was ready to be taken seriously by the Rock Crowd. Every subsequent move for Madonna-Like a Prayer to Rebel Heart is for adults only. I don’t think a lot of today’s younger set know who Madonna is but hey I’m a fan because of the sadness in her voice! Match point, Madonna wins!
