On July 16 1985, Madonna’s hit single, Crazy For You, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of one million copies of the single in United States—the requirement for a gold single prior to 1989.

  1. My beautiful Mammaw bought me this single in 1985. She was NOT a fan of Madonna, but I asked to get the We are the World single as well. I felt like she would be happier buying me both when one was “Good” and Madonna was “bad”. 🙂
