On March 6 1986, Madonna and George Harrison held a press conference at Kensington Roof Gardens, London, England to discuss the filming of Shanghai Surprise.
When asked by a reporter to apologize for her and Sean’s behavior towards the British press, Madonna answered: “I have nothing to apologize for”.
You have to stick it out to the end of the video to hear George Harrison’s Shanghai Surprise. It’s one of those 80’s songs you can’t get out of your head!
Here are some of the lyrics:
But i’m ready.
You must be crazy… crazy…
And you got no money… money…
But you’re a tryer…
My straits are dire from the wok into the fire,
I’d like to meet you but i’ve broken my chopstick.
Sometimes there’s no hope in, in chasing promises,
I wanna love you though it could prove to be unwise,
Madonna’s first reinvention-the song was Live to Tell.
The song is available on Harrison’s Cloud 9 album from 1987. Has a Bowie feel to it! I love her look from late 85 to mid 86, and again in late 88 and early 89 with the brunette and again in mid 92 to early 93 with Bad Girl and This used to be My Playground. I also like her 98 and 99 Ray of Light look too.
