Editors’ Notes

While Like A Virgin established Madonna as an ‘80s MTV icon, True Blue, her third album, ensured she was no flash in the pan. Bad movies would jeopardise her star-power some, but the dancefloor was always Madonna’s refuge and her image was always up for changing. This time it’s thick eyebrows and short, smart blonde locks. Still, a dancefloor diva is still not necessarily a worldwide superstar, and True Blue works with greater ambition. The dance grooves are meatier. “Open Your Heart” is unstoppable and immediate. “La Isla Bonita” tweaks a Latin rhythm. “Where’s the Party” plays up a carefree hedonist rave. But “Live to Tell” is the ballad open for contemplation and in search of beauty. “Papa Don’t Preach” is the controversial “keepin’ my baby” story-song of a young teen in conflict with parental authority, while “True Blue” pays homage to tough ‘60s girl groups. For someone well-known for her image, Madonna used True Blue to also build on her music.

Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she has manipulated the media and the public with her music, her videos, her publicity,...
