EDITORS’ NOTES

In the lead-up to Like a Prayer, Madonna became a movie star, got divorced, and turned 30—her mother’s age when she died. Themes of family, faith, and personal growth weighed heavily and set the stage for this album’s creative breakthroughs: “Express Yourself,” “Oh Father,” and the unforgettable title track. “Till Death Do Us Part” and “Keep It Together” prove that dance-pop can be intimate and confessional, while “Promise to Try” is a soul-bearing vocal performance that makes every Madonna fan feel like her personal confidante.

First Real Taste of M

This is the album that opened my eyes to this living legend. I was in the 9th grade when it was released. True classic album.

Jeff Porcaro What else can I say

Oh! My gosh. It seems that everytime I watch a video on my I-pad screen and hear his drums through my headphones. Lovechills run up and down my spine. He knows how to enchant my heart. I can hold these images of him very close and feel the rhythm of his beats. So it goes without saying anything more. From all of his superb session work to being a founding member of Toto. Jeff Porcaro left behind a lasting legacy. Very soon it will be 26 years since his tragic death and everyone throughout the world still mourns his loss. For me it's a deeper hurt because I never got the opportunity to meet him in person many years ago and get an autographed picture.He will always continue to play drums on my heartstrings every night.I will never stop thinking about my Dreamyeyed Angel. 🐱🎻🎧😊🐈😀🎸🎼💿🎹🎤☺️❤️😇💙📀🎷😇💿🎧💜😂😍🎤🐱😊🐯💛😅😿. Te Amo (Which translated from Spanish means) I love you.Till then as always keep playing those drums in Heaven. Our loss is Heavens Gain.
