Today in Madonna History: May 23, 1987

On May 23 1987, La Isla Bonita hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Adult Contemporary chart where it ruled for a single week.

It was Madonna’s second Hot AC chart topper after Live To Tell‘s three-week stint at #1 the previous year.

Both releases achieved similar longevity on AC radio playlists, with La Isla‘s seventeen-week Hot AC chart run nearly living up to Tell‘s eighteen weeks.

  1. That it is-all true! Madonna is a brilliant artist and wonderful person because of True Blue’s second ballad-La Isla Bonita it’s named-and it will forever be Madonna’s First Evita Prelude-and it is a lovely and beautiful song with a beguiling Ciccone melody! Madonna Forever!
