Madonna Month: A to Z of Madonna Singles – M

Which single did we go for? Find out…

Madonna

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 M.

M is for Material Girl. Madonna channels Marilyn Monroe in the video as she pays homage to the legendary actress and her performance of Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend in the film Gentlemen prefer Blondes.  The song deals with materialism and preferring money and diamonds to love and romance.

 

Single facts

  • The track was produced by iconic guitarist Nile Rodgers of Chic fame
  • Nicole Kidman sings a line from Material girl in Moulin Rouge, coincidentally as part of her performance of Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend  (the film also features a rendition of Like a Virgin)
  • Material Girl reached no.3 on the UK chart in 1985
  • The Tamperer ft Maya sampled the backing track for their no.1 hit If You Buy This Record Your Life Will Be Better in 1998 which also peaked at no.3 on the UK charts – we always knew life with Madonna could be so fabulous!

We could’ve also chosen 2000’s no.1 single Music, her duet with Britney Me Against The Music or Hard Candy’s Miles Away. Did we get it right? Tell us @entfocusmusic and what you’d pick for the letter N.

See our other choices (updated daily) in our Madonna A to Z of singles.
