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 W.
W is for Who’s That Girl. The title track to the 1987 film, Who’s That Girl was lyrically based on Nikki Finn, the lead character in the movie played by Madonna. The song is predominantly sang in English but does have several lines sung in Spanish including in the chorus where she sings Quien es esa nina which translates simply as Who’s That Girl.
- Who’s That Girl gave Madonna her 5th UK no.1 single and 6th US no.1
- Madonna performed a stripped back, acoustic version of the track on her most recent Rebel Heart Tour
- The song was nominated for “Best Song From A Motion Picture” at the 1988 Grammy Awards and “Best Original Song” at the 1988 Golden Globe Awards. Unfortunately it didn’t win either
The only other Madonna single being with W is Ray Of Light’s What It Feels Like For A Girl with it’s Guy Ritchie directed video.
