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 O.

O is for Open Your Heart.  The fourth single from Madonna’s True Blue album is an energetic pop gem dealing with love and letting someone in.  Released in 1986 it was another worldwide success as she continued to cement her position as the biggest female popstar on the planet.
