In ’82 Madonna put out– her debut album. Her hair was short and spikey and blonde, with roots as dark as her eyeliner.
Think about this for a minute. Everyone all over the world had a pounding disco hangover by 82. Madonna was brand-new to the music scene and managed to make a dance album that could still make everyone happy instead of sick.
She took some great soul elements, some really excellent keyboard and drum talents to make this album. It’s one that deserves a new look. Sure, “Holiday” and “Lucky Star” got over-played, but if you haven’t really listened to this album in a while, you’ll be really surprised at the talent Madonna had coming straight out of the gate.
