  1. Speed the Plow-the Initiation and Intuition of Her Maturity Period that commenced with Like a Prayer. On a record that was about growing up, Madonna escaped and exhumed her past with a marked sadness. In songs like the #1 hit title cut, Promise to Try, Oh Father and finale Spanish Eyes, Madonna began to cry-Dancing with tears in her eyes, Prayer was a giant first step on the Ciccone Road to Rebel Heart-Madonna Forever!
