    Deep Dive - 4 Minutes

    A tonal shift for Madonna with a song which was not only a massive hit for the singer, but brought lots of new fans on board. But it's a divisive track and era with certain fans. I'll be discussing this, telling the story of the recording and mixing and also exploring its use in the TV show Glee.

    This was Madonna's second single, but it didn't have a global release so is not known as widely as some of her bigger hits, despite being a complete banger! Hear the story of its earliest versions plus how Madonna was styled, how the video was made, the special artwork by her friend Martin Burgoyne and much more!

Simply the best Madonna podcast

The format is so fun and informative. It’s a treat to listen to this podcast. His research on Madonna is very spot on. Keep it up!

Masterclass

The production is first class, the presenter has warmth, humor and insight. For those of us who have a history with Madonna there is confirmation and validation for the music that has shaped our lives. For those that are new: this is a road map that masterfully highlights 40 years of sheer brilliance. Not to be missed.
