Madonna: Story of Her Songs


Recommended Posts

  • Enrico changed the title to Madonna: Story of Her Songs

This is the description from the Reelz website:

"We reveal the three tracks that launched Madonna into the pop stratosphere and the producers, songwriters, photographers, journalists and industry experts who witnessed it happening. From her arrival in New York as a dance school dropout with ruthless ambition, to her breakthrough as a dance chart star, before the hit that would bring her mainstream success. Released in 1983 ‘Holiday’ was an upbeat and irresistible song and we hear from the songwriter and guitarist, Curtis Hudson, on how he created the track and worked closely with Madonna in the studio. ‘Holiday’ saw the aspiring superstar debut on the Billboard chart and make her name as both a pop act and fashion icon with her edgy street style. Next she would shock the world with her provocative single ‘Like a Virgin’ and we interview its legendary songwriter, Billy Steinberg, whose catchy hook and outrageous lyrics, together with the sexually charged video helped Madonna change the face of pop forever. Then the now pop icon channelled Marilyn Monroe in an unforgettable video for her hit ‘Material Girl’ and we speak to renowned backing singer Frank Simms whole helped bring the playful and electronic track to life, as well as having to guide the young and unpolished Madonna through her vocals. This track came to define the excess of the eighties and cemented her as a global star. By reliving the creation of these sensational songs we can map Madonna’s rapid rise to become the undisputed Queen of Pop."

If  you watched the Youtube video, it's the same show. :)

This documentary aired the end of last year. It's also a slightly misleading title as it only covers three songs from 1983-84 that she didn't even write. 

yeah I wished they'd used more stuff that she wrote, with this the GP would kind of cement that she doesn't write her stuff, when we know that she has written/produced like 90% of her work

it's a little frustrating that people aren't really aware of what a good songwriter/lyricist/producer she truly is

I agree  however must be slightly frustrating if you wrote the song and for the artist to get global credit for adding a sneeze between your words
