Madonna – Material Girl

So we came to Madge's fifth UK single. Superficially keeping the image she used to such good effect with Like A Virgin, in the video at least Madonna performed perhaps her first change of look in her homage to Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Much more how she would have liked to have been remembered than that trashy, slushy nonsense by Elton John, but I digress.

It's often said that Madonna is least proud of this song than any other in her back catalogue. The 80's were a time of conspicuous excess on both sides of the pond, and with this song it seems that a nickname had been found for Madonna. One that she didn't much like.
