No ballads allowed, sorry, wanted it to showcase her ultra 80s bops of which were all killer and no filler.In my world, Spotlight, would have served as the lead single circa late 1987, with the new You Can Dance remix edits of Everybody and Where's The Party being exclusive to this Greatest Hits, and being the follow up singles during the first half of 1988, this finally being the hit singles they should have been.

What would you say your favourite Madonna period is if really had to nail it down? For me, it would have to be 1989-1993, where she evolved from her (perfect) pop period that made her a superstar, into something more deeper. I also think this period was the most Queer friendly so to speak during that time, with the themes, imagery, plus music itself. She broke barriers here and was not afraid to do so either.
