  1. Physical attraction was one of the best songs in the album and the album as a whole like many of her albums was a great listen from start to finish I bought the album the day it was released

  2. Great record! Only had Borderline and Lucky Star taped off radio until the end of 1984 when I was allowed to buy the album. “Madonna” and “Like a Virgin” were pretty much the only albums I listened to from late 84 through late 1985!
