Biography

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

This album did for girls what Michael Jackson's Thriller album did for boys. By that I mean not only is it one of the defining albums of the 1980s but it prompted almost mass hysteria from the population. Many parents disapproved of what they saw as Madonna's rebellious antics and lyrics (and this was 30 years before Miley Cyrus!). But us girls knew a real superstar when we saw - and heard! - one. Not only was the music fantastic - and that often gets overlooked with all the hype surrounding Madonna - but the image was something else too. We all teased our hair, started wearing lacy fingerless gloves and footless tights, slapped on the bangles, and put so many Crucifixes around our neck it's a wonder that my generation don't have permanent spinal problems from the effort of holding our heads up. There were Madonna look-alike competitions, Madonna Talent Shows, Madonna look-alikes, Madonna music blasting out onto the street. OK, so Thriller was an excellent album, but even Michael Jackson couldn't claim it had that big an impact.

The music on this album has not dated, even thoguht it was originally released in 1984 (Into The Groove ws added in '85 - an early forerunner for today's trend of reissuing 'deluxe' versions of albums!). Like A Virgin, Material Girl, Into The Groove, Dress You Up, Angel, Love Don't Live Here Anymore - we all knew all the words and played it constantly while wearing out our VHS Video copy of The Virgin Tour. Mdonna seemed so ballsy, so new and fresh and exciting - who of today's female singers can you say that about? Nowadays we see Miley Cyrus stick out her tongue - for the millionth time that day - and we think: put it away, love, we've seen it all before.

Not one of my favourite Madonna albums, HOWEVER, it contains some absolute classics. (as would be expected – this is the album that truly introduced Madonna to the world and created the ‘Wannabes’).
As this is a remastered version of the original release of LAV, it does NOT include Into The Groove, which is a shame. However, most people who want it will have that on The Immaculate Collection.
With 4 huge hits (Material Girl, Like a Virgin, Dress You Up and Angel) some classic Madonna album cuts, Over and Over (later to be remixed on You Can Dance), Stay and a cover of the Rose Royce classic ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’ (which was remixed and released as a single many years later to support the ‘Something to Remember’ ballads collection), and the truly beautiful (and still one of Madonna fans most loved ballads) Shoo-Bee-Doo.
The remixes are good, essentially extended versions (as the 80’s did best!)
A classic and historical album!

Format: Audio CD
There I was, a shy, geeky spendthrifty 14-year-old. Then along came Madonna and Like a Virgin. Suddenly, I was a total Madonna addict, listening to this album religiously every day, buying every silly teen mag that even mentioned her, and--to the horror of my parents--covering all of my walls with Madonna posters. No other album has ever had such a influence on me. I was still shy and geeky, of course, but I was a changed person. Over the years, my Madonna worship waned but never disappeared. Going back and listening to this CD now, I am amazed at how great it sounds, and I enjoy the memories it stirs inside of me.
No one can deny how huge this album was. It made Madonna a superstar, and it sunk its anchors into both the album and single bestseller charts. The title track was of course a huge hit and represents to me a cultural phenomenon. Material Girl had an even larger impact, and many would argue the song basically defined the decade of the 80s; it certainly helped shape the decade. Dress You Up was just a fun song with a great beat; as things turned out, it was to a certain extent prophetic because Madonna basically did dress up great multitudes of young admirers copying the Madonna look. Angel was another big hit, largely because it was so easy to relate to. Anyone who has ever had a crush on someone knows exactly what Madonna is singing about here. Over and Over also charted, I believe; it lacks the substance of the other songs on the album, but both the words and the energizing music do encourage you to keep going in the face of setbacks. Love Don't Live Here Anymore is the true gem on here, though. I kept expecting it to be released as a single because I really believed it would be a huge hit.

This album is better than Madonna's debut. It's lovely!

1. Material Girl - This is a classic pop song. Fun to sing, fun video too. Tamperers cover was great also! 8/10

2. Angel - A single form the album that never made much of an impact. 80s pop by numbers. 7/10

3. Like a Virgin - YES> great song! This is simply a great song. The lyrics are brilliant, when you really hear and read them, they are very nice and a bit profound! Madonna has sung this a few different ways on her tours over the years, check out her versions on the live albums of Confessions and MDNA tours. 10/10

4. Over and Over - Hmm, I find this song strange. It's about being yourself and getting up after being knocked down. Which is all good and inspirational, but i don't like the male backing vocals, it just sounds to rushed and strange! 6/10

5. Love Don't Live Here Anymore - Cover of the classic song, and I think she does it well. It's not groundbreaking, but her voice holds up nicely. 8/10

6. Into The Groove - My gosh, is this the greatest pop song of all time?? It sure could be! 'AND YOU CAN DANCE! FOR INSPIRATION! YEAH! COME ON!'. I'm too excited to write more. 10/10

7. Dress You Up - Ahh, now this is a great forgotten Madonna song. It has a bit of subversion about it, a slightly darker edge to it, at the same time staying bubblegum. I'm not saying it's a dark song, but there is just something different about this! 8/10

8. Shoo-bee-doo - This is one of my favorite Madonna ballads ever. Shoo-bee-doo is a stupid title (I might have called it 'come to me baby'). Despite the title, it is a sugary sweet ballad, catchy, fun, saxophone solo, fabulousness. Made for the last dance at the disco! 10/10

9. Pretender - A very good 80s pop track.
