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.
We have reached the letter K and as it turns out there’s only one choice.
K is for Keep it Together. Not officially a UK single but it was a single in North America, Australia and Japan. Lyrically, this song is all about the importance of family; seems Madonna was feeling sentimental after her divorce from Sean Penn.
- Keep It Together was inspired musically by Sly and the Family Stone and Madonna further acknowledged this by adding a verse from Family Affair when performing the track on the Blond Ambition Tour
- In Australia the track was a double a-side with Vogue and topped the charts
- It was the sixth and final single to be lifted from the Like A Prayer album following Like A Prayer, Express Yourself, Cherish, Oh Father and Dear Jessie
Are you a fan of Keep It Together? Tell us @entfocusmusic and what you’d pick for what is probably going to be the hardest yet – the letter L.
