SLS Part 2

I’m not surprised my earlier choice is popular, though I tend to look through the comments on Jim’s original post to see if anyone has already used the song I have in mind for the weekly challenge. I didn’t see ‘True’ so thought I might have a one off. This is not the case, and my choice is  shared by several bloggers. It’s a good record!!

Anyway, I have remembered this and so far not seen it, so here is another trip down memory lane for me, this time from 1986.
I bought the album and loved the beat of this. It still gets my feet tapping.

True Blue” is a song by American singer Madonna. It is the title track from her third studio album True Blue (1986), and was released as the album’s third single on September 17, 1986, by Sire Records. Written and produced by Madonna and Steve Bray, the song deals with Madonna’s feelings for her then-husband Sean Penn. A dance-pop song, it features instrumentation from a rhythm guitar, a synthesizer, keyboards, and drums. The main chorus is backed by an alternate one, incorporating a chord progression generally found in doo-wop music.

Received by critics as a light-hearted and cute retro song, “True Blue” topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada and became another consecutive top-ten song in United States for Madonna, by reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The original music video portrayed her again with a new look, leaner and sporting platinum blond bushy hair. An alternate video was made through the “Make My Video” contest on MTV. The final selected videos had a similar theme of a 1950s-inspired setting and the storyline following the lyrics of the song. “True Blue” has been performed on the Who’s That Girl World Tour (1987) and the Rebel Heart Tour (2015–2016).

Hey
What?
Listen

I’ve had other guys
I’ve looked into their eyes
But I never knew love before
‘Til you walked through my door

I’ve had other lips
I’ve sailed a thousand ships
But no matter where I go
You’re the one for me, baby, this I know

‘Cause it’s true love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you

I’ve heard all the lines
I’ve cried, oh so many times
Those tear drops they won’t fall again
I’m so excited ’cause you’re my best friend

So if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear, I said

True love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you

‘Cause it’s true love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you

No more sadness, I kiss it goodbye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don’t you know, don’t you know that it’s

True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love
It’s true love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love

It’s true, so if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear, I said

No more sadness, I kiss it goodbye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don’t you know, don’t you know that

It’s true love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you
I love you

This time I know it’s true love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Your heart fits just like a glove
And I’m gonna be true blue, baby, I love you

True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love
It’s true love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love
It’s true love

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Excellent Di a definite one off 😉😉

  2. I have liked Madonna ever since she appeared in Penthouse Magazine, but I never liked this platinum hair due on her. It is a nice bubbly song Di, thanks for sharing it.

    I always appreciated Madonna in all her various iterations. Another great choice for today.

    • I liked her music then she seemed to lose her way a bit. She still has the occasional gem though. Saw her on a clip this morning and thought OMG…….. more of her out of her outfit than in it, especially from behind (excuse pun).
