EDITORS’ NOTES

Following a charismatic debut, 26-year-old Madonna was determined to steal the spotlight with 1984’s Like a Virgin. Overseen by disco genius Nile Rodgers, the album is flawlessly played and produced. The button-pushing title track and “Material Girl” mix New Wave dance with R&B lust. The hooks on “Angel” are as sweet as hard candy and the rhythms of “Into the Groove” are tantalizing. Still, it’s Madonna’s coy-but-impassioned vocals that make the album more than a fleeting dose of pop fluff.

Great talent

I'll admit that I'm not a huge Madonna fan. But that's not to say I don't think she was an excellent artist. Like a Virgin and Material Girl are classic songs that I think everyone can appreciate.
