Happy 29th Anniversary to one of the first great albums in the career of my favorite living artist, and one of the last great albums of the decade that shaped everything about me: MADONNA’s “LIKE A PRAYER”! As I wrote last year, this album alone is reason enough for @Madonna to be the #livinglegend that She is, the sort of work any recording artist would dream of creating and leaving behind, and in #Madonna’s case, it was only the beginning. Her early work, most especially the legendary #VirginTour and stellar #TrueBlue album, is brimming with excitement and inspiration and timeless appeal. And yet #LikeAPrayer took it to a new level, one that can still effectively silence those who attempt to silence Madonna. It is a testament to her artistry and an exhilarating listening experience—as much in 2018 as in 1989. Maybe next year, in my fantasy scenario where CDs are manufactured by the will of #RebelHearts, we may finally get treated to a 30th Anniversary presentation with remastered sound and those heavenly 7” single mixes that are presently totally unavailable on CD/MP3 despite dominating radio airwaves to this day. But tonight, I’ll gratefully savor the original release. Whether online or on CD/vinyl/patchouli-scented cassette, I hope you’ll experience #LAP with me, 29 years after the #SpringEquinox that introduced the world to new layers of meaning and magnificence in the life and career of Madonna.
