Madonna Albums: The First Album

Queen Of Pop, Madonna, is about to release her 13th studio album.

The imminent release of “Rebel Heart” hasn’t come without hitting the headlines for various reasons but let’s ignore that for now. Instead, let’s build up to the big release by remembering her previous twelve studio albums.

Her debut, self titled album “Madonna” was released in the UK on 11th February 1984 reaching a peak of thirty-seven in the album chart and present on the chart for twenty weeks.

After a re-release titled “Madonna – The First Album” in July 1985, the album charted again on the UK Albums chart. It reached a higher peak of fourteen and was present on the chart for eighty weeks.

Track 1 – Lucky Star

Possibly one of the most iconic songs and image from the 1980s. Dancing about in her string vest, gloves and bow in her hair. Ah, those were the days!


Track 2 – Borderline

One of my all time favourite Madonna songs. There’s just something about the very simplistic intro that gets me every time.


Track 3 – Burning Up

Not a song I’m very familiar with but no wonder she is burning up – have you seen how much twirling around she does in the video?


Track 4 – I Know It

Some really bad 80s B movie is out there just crying out for this song to be used on the soundtrack.


Track 5 – Holiday

A classic! Not much more to say…


Track 6 – Think Of Me

It sound, to me, like a “filler” track to make up the numbers.


Track 7 – Physical Attraction

Only on her first album and she’s already being the risqué Madge we all know and love.


Track 8 – Everybody

This is where it all began – her very first single. She certainly was a league above most artists at the time and, well, still is!


What are your Madonna memories?

OMG – Pft me…
