Products / Madonna - Like a Virgin
Let’s get one thing straight: This is a great album. You might not like it. In fact, you might (think) you loathe it. But from its banging opener, ‘Material Girl’, it is pop music done extremely well. The team behind it includes Chic’s Nile Rodgers on production duties – who, in case you didn’t know, is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last 50 years – and some of his former band mates, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson, on bass and drums respectively. Also, the album, with its overtly sexual themes, did what all great records do: kicked up a fuss. This is more than just another pop record. Highlight track: 'Like a Virgin'.
