Her Madgesty is celebrating her 60th birthday this month so we’re dedicating August to the Queen of Pop.  We will be picking our A to Z of Madonna singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Madonna album.

Today is brought to you by the letter C.

C is for Cherish.  The third single from Madonna’s Like a Prayer album is just sheer joy.  The video sees Madonna frolicking in the waves with a gorgeous merman and having the time of her life.  It was a much lighter image and poppier sound for Madonna following the controversial Like A Prayer and dominating looks of Express Yourself.  It’s perfect for the summer and remains a firm favourite.

Single facts

  • Cherish was co-written with Patrick Leonard who Madonna worked with extensively from 1985 to 1990 and again for Ray of Light
  • The song reached no.3 on the UK singles chart in September of 1989
  • It contains a line from a 1960s song of the same title by The Association – ‘Cherish is the word I use’

Other ‘Cs’ in Madonna’s singles back catalogue include the beautiful ballad Crazy For You (which reached no.2 in 1985 and again in 1991), the dancey Celebration and Causing a Commotion from Who’s That Girl movie soundtrack.  Do you agree with our choice?
