On July 7 1992, Madonna contributed This Used To Be My Playground to the Special Olympics benefit CD, Barcelona Gold.
This Used To Be My Playground was the theme song to the hit film A League of Their Own, but it was not included on the film soundtrack. The soundtrack for the film was released by Columbia Records, while Barcelona Gold was released by Warner Bros., possibly the reason why Madonna’s hit single appeared on the benefit CD instead of the soundtrack.
Playground-Madonna in sadness mode! In this sad, mournful and timeless ballad about the Best Friend she will ever have, Madonna has written a song for all of us who have ever grieved over the loss, death and sadness of a loved one! The feeling and emotion of Playground is universal! I am touched and moved by Madonna! Madonna is Love!
