Today in Madonna History: April 9, 1983

On April 9 1983, Madonna’s Burning Up debuted at #66 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the USA.

Is Burning Up one of your favourite Madonna songs?

I grew up with my older sister first loving the Like A Virgin-era, so I wasn’t always aware of it. When I began my adventure into Madonna fandom, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there was an edgier Madonna before the likes of Material Girl and Dress You Up. I LOVE the video for this song and the song itself — and I’m so glad that she’s embraced it LIVE over the last few years. – Jay

  1. Jay-Burning Up is one of my favorites by Madonna! The way she rocked it during Rebel Heart Tour with her Jackson Charvel Flying V guitar was a joy to behold and it left a mark on me! Thank you Madonna Ciccone!

  2. I remember seeing the video for Burning Up on HBO video jukebox at my grandparents house! I didn’t know what to think of it. I had never seen a woman being so brashly sexual. It wasn’t until Borderline that I fell in love with Madonna and Burning Up soon became a favorite of M’s tunes!
