I've been listening to my whole collection of music for awhile now to pick out my fav stuff and I recently came to the Madonna section and I must say that Madonna is fabulous!
These songs have been bringing all these memories back from when I was younger. One day I realized that I absolutely loved Madonna, I was like 12 or 13 or 14... and just as soon as I had said that it became like Madonna mania in the world and I could divulge into madonna mania.
I remember Mtv did a whole weekend of nothing but Madonna, for like 48 hours straight, no joke, it was all M vids and interviews and live performances - everything. I would sit down in front of the tv at the appropriate times for the Joan Rivers show just to hear some tidbit about M and her life, sometimes it was M being seen at the latest lesbian bar or are M and gal pal X hooking up? etc. The there was listening to every word of my fav songs and writing down all the lyrics so I could practice singing along.
As I listen to all these songs I remember the video for each freaking song!
Like a prayer -burning crosses, tears of blood and soulful black women
express yourself - mens clothing and dancing naked behind a screen with only her silhouette, shots of M chained up in bed naked
open your heart - shots cut between M doing a strip show and a little boy running around = creepy
papa don't preach - rebelious pregnant teen and fat balding father throwing beer cans (that's how i remember him anyhow)
vogue - hello! and there was that live performance where she was dressed up all victorian like...
rain - the new do and a wet Madonna
Then there's all the songs i would blast while pressing my face up against the speakers trying to match her vocals. Madonna is how I learned anything about singing! My parents would leave and I would relish in Rain and Rescue Me!
Into The Groove was like a bittersweet emotional angsty relationship that made me feel so happy at times and then so upset at others.
And one time i was watching those 80's movies that USA would always play (how about UP ALL NIGHT WITH RHONDA!(and her HUGE jugs!) about wrestling and the kids go into a club and who is performing?! MADONNA! Crazy For You!
I had this massive attraction to all things Madonna.
Just so you know.
Old school Janet was great too, pre-janet. before she got all hot.
No my first name aint baby it's janet, miss jackson if you're nasty.
I always wanted to do my own take on that - no my first name ain't amy, it's lil a, lil a gets nasty!
