Rocks In The Attic #273: Madonna – ‘Like A Virgin’ (1984)

RITA#273I give this album the time of day because it’s produced by Nile Rodgers. That said, I still can’t quite figure out how on earth Madonna ever got famous. Her nasally voice is not the nicest sound in the world; in fact it makes a whole album of hers a real chore to listen to. I wonder if she managed to sleep her way to the top or – to borrow a phrase from my Dad (describing Cilla Black’s equally dumbfounding lack of talent) – if she got famous with a mattress strapped to her back.

And anyway, if Madonna didn’t exist, who would chicks and gay men listen to?

Hit: Like A Virgin

Hidden Gem: Love Don’t Live Here Anymore
