  1. Over 30 years later, La Ciccone’s First Detroit Top Tenner Borderline it’s named still stands as Madonna’s revenge get even song! When M rages “Borderline/I am losing my mind/You keep pushing love over the Borderline/Come on baby Set Me Free!”-you’d best believe damn well that said song is both about Sean and Guy!! Face it, Madonna enjoys being a single Divorcee-Madonna didn’t exactly write Borderline but she has lived it and has pad the ultimate price of love!!! Does Borderline matter? You bet it does!
