True Blue - Madonna
Advantages: you have a good variety of somewhat fast and slow songs
Disadvantages: a few lesser songs
When you're talking about pop music than you quickly talk about Madonna. Born in 1958 they call her the Queen of Pop. This American singer has sold more than 300 million albums and is considered the best-selling singer at all time. The first album was released in the year 1983. She is not only busy with music but is also an actress, director and has many more things. Simply put everyone has ever heard of Madonna.
True Blue is the third studio album of Madonna and was released in 1986. Funny to think that I was only three years old. The album is about love, but also about work, dreams and disappointments. There are unfortunately only nine songs on this album, but again hats off to Madonna who has co-written every song. The songs fit the pop, dance and some rock genre. Below is a discussion of some songs:
Papa Do not Preach
A famous song of Madonna is Papa Do not Preach. It is a somewhat synthetic pop song with a nice drum beat. You hear some raw, clear young voice of Madonna that fits well with the song. The chorus is pretty catchy and it sounds good where the rate goes up slightly. In general it is a great mid tempo song.
Live to Tell
Again this song comes with clear pop influences, but it is generally a slow song and almost a sort of ballad. Madonna's voice is more in the background and sounds soft. What halfway through the song she sings more powerful, but it remains generally calm with the song includes the use of the drums and the guitar.
La Isla Bonita
A more Hawaii like good happy song. It is a mid tempo song with Madonna's voice a little softer. The song remains generally fairly slow with a nice beat.
Love Makes the World Go Round
A more electro-pop like song. It is especially in the beginning the song is more up tempo and the voice of Madonna also sounds a lot rougher and harder. It is a song that here and there becomes faster. A nice up tempo song but not one of the strongest.
An album with clearly more pop rock and dance influences. It's a nice cheerful album with some good up-tempo songs, but I must say that the slow songs certainly sound good. Especially Papa Do not Preach is a more rock-like song. The songs each have their own identity but fit well together and you have a good variety of somewhat fast and slow songs. It sounds generally less pop-like and that is certainly not wrong. Four stars.
