We had a blast talking all things Madonna with Melissa in September 2009 that we thought might enjoy hearing it again. Singer Melissa Young joins us to take a look at the Madonna the entertainer, the woman and the iconoclast. A touching and colorful promise to a dead solider and hot celebrity news.

    FYI Melissa Young, Shep Pettibone was the remixer to:
    Into the Groove originally released in 1985, but remixed in 1987 from You Can Dance
    Causing a Commotion (1987)
    Spotlight from You Can Dance
    Like a Prayer (1989)
    Express Yourself (1989)
    Keep it Together (1990)
    Vogue (1990)
    Justify My Love (1990)
    This Used to Be my Playground (1992)
    Erotica (1992)
    Deeper and Deeper (1992)
    Bad Girl (1993)
    Fever (1993)
    Rain (1993)
    And the songs produced for Erotica are:
    Erotica, Bye Bye Baby, Deeper and Deeper, Bad Girl, Thief of Hearts, Words, Rain, Why’s It So Hard, In This Life and Did You Do It?
    And unreleashed songs: You Are The One, Shame & Jitterbug from Erotica sessions; Goodbye To Innocence, Something’s Coming Over Me, I Will Always Have You, Bring It, Goodtime and Tongue Tied from Bedtime Stories.
    It were Patrick Leonard, Stephen Bray and Prince who produced Like a Prayer along with Madonna.

    The order of the US singles from 82′ – 92′ were Everybody, Burning Up/Physical Attraction, Holiday, Borderline and Lucky Star, Like A Virgin, Material Girl, Crazy For You, Angel/Into the Groove, Dress You Up, Gambler, Live To Tell, Papa Don’t Preach, True Blue, Open Your Heart, La Isla Bonita, Who’s That Girl, Causing A Commotion, Look Of Love- Non US single, Like A Prayer, Express Yourself, Cherish, Oh Father, Keep It Together, Dear Jessie-Non US single, Vogue, Justify My Love, Rescue Me, This is Used to my Playground, Erotica, Deeper and Deeper. But her first top 10 hit is Borderline and her first #1 hit is Like a Virgin.

    In my interpretation of Express Yourself, Madonna rebels against her master/husband w/ the bald head & monocle that oversees the man powered factory by having her black “pussy” cat do the walking to seduce her man of dreams who is played by the model Cameron and in turn causes a riot. The scene where Madonna dances in a man’s suit and monocle was a fantasy dreamt up by Cameron’s character.

    The reason people turned on her after Erotica, Sex and Body of Evidence because the liberals and the conservatives thought she went too far in pushing the envelope and being overexposed
    I happen to like the other artistic folk pop rock songs from American Life, but I do agree the rap in the title track is cheesy. But hey, it’s perfect because it’s pop.

    Michael Jackson also stole the “moonwalk” from the b boys from the street just like Madonna took vogueing from the underground ball rooms and clubs.

    Madonna did bring gay culture visibility from Open Your Heart video, Express Yourself video & performances, Vogue, Blond Ambition, Truth or Dare, Sex, Erotica, Girlie Show, Next Best Thing and Miss American Pie video.
    I agree that Olivia Newton John’s Let’s Get Physical video does not count when expressing a homoerotic view from the female singer because her male models were gay.

    It’s “quicker than a ray of light” not “with a little ray of light”. Just joshing.

    The vocalizer effect were done for Madonna’s Music album’s Nobody’s Perfect, Don’t Tell Me and Paradise Is Not For Me.

    Madonna’s mother died when Madonna was 5 years old, not 6.

    The order of the family siblings are Anthony, Martin, Madonna, Paula, Christopher, Melanie, half sis & bro: Jennifer and Mario.

    There is no one sitting the king of pop’s throne, but the closest contenders are Justin Timberlake and Usher.

    Also in the Like a Prayer video Madonna & the “black Jesus” who is supposed to be the St. Martin de Porres breaking another taboo by kissing inside the church on a pew. I think this time she was fantasizing about kissing the wrong accused, imprisoned guy, whose actor plays the “black Jesus”.

    I love and enjoy your show.
