179 (ffffFFFFfff yeah, I... don't know how to explain that logo. At least you'll only see it seven more times.) SCORE: 6.267 2015 PLACEMENT: 167 of 210 (6.016) HIGHEST SCORE: 10 x 2 (@DJHazey @Weslicious) LOWEST SCORE: 2 x 1 (@Up Down Suite) MY SCORE: 5/10 And the debut takes its first hit, leaving Erotica, Bedtime Stories, Ray Of Light, and American Life as the only albums remaining that haven't lost a single track yet! At a run time of 3:44, this is actually one of the debut's shorter songs, but Christ if it doesn't feel like it does on forever. The sitcom opening credits production, Madonna's scrappy wee voice really doing its best to summon some gravitas in the chorus... it's all just a bit of a chore. I'm afraid there's nothing really that notable about it either outside of it being written solely by Madonna, similar to the bulk of the debut, which is impressive for a young female popstar in the early 80s I think. It was produced by Reggie Lucas, who did all but "Holiday" and who died in 2018. I want to say I remember Madonna posting something on her Instagram about it at the time, but from what I can gather they never worked together again after this. It was also used as a b-side on several of her singles, but from what I can gather, when Like A Virgin really took off, her UK label saw it as opportunity to push the debut again and basically re-released its singles, which is why I'm guessing it's so recurrent as a b-side. Perhaps someone else can enlighten us? Can you tell I feel less than nothing towards this song?
