Crazy for you is Madonna’s 8th single release and first single from a film’s soundtrack (Vision Quest, where Madonna played a small part as a club singer), which meant at the time the song was not available on any Madonna album, although it was later added to The Immaculate Collection (1990), then Something to remember (1995) and finally on Celebration (2009). “Crazy for you” became Madonna’s second number one single in the USA and also it was her first ballad released as a single. It was a new musical direction for Madonna and showcased a different side of her the general public wasn’t aware of, in that sense it put Madonna in a more adult level compared to her previous recordings.

The popularity of this song was enormous, but even so it took time to hit the top spot, as “We are the world” was parked at the summit of the Billboard Hot 100, but it was capable of taking the lead for one week. This song marked also the first Grammy nomination for Madonna, for Best Female Pop Vocal performance in 1986, losing to Whitney Houston. In a time when Madonna wasn’t taken seriously by the industry, this was a big step towards that longed recognition. The video on the other side is made up entirely of film clips, so there’s nothing groundbreaking here.

Material girl is Madonna’s 7th single release and the second from “Like a virgin”. This single was the perfect match to “Like a virgin” and many critics commented that both songs were so powerful, they overshadow the rest of the album. And in a way there were right, “Material girl” not only would become another signature song for Madonna, it would also became the nickname in which she’s always referred to by the press, and the one Madonna hates the most. She has consistently said how much she regrets recording those songs because of that, but her career would not have been the same without them either, kind of like a can’t live with or without you situation.

The video shot by Borderline and Like a virgin director, Mary Lambert, became another landmark for Madonna, shows her mimicking a scene from Marilyn Monroe’s “Gentlemen prefer blonds”, and it was a brilliant choice for a video. While Madonna has been compared to death to Marilyn, she never denied the comparisons and the inspiration she got from her, but she stated that she was very different from Marilyn, saying that she is in control of herself, and has no plans of becoming a victim like her. The ultimate message of the video is Madonna rejecting all the material things that are given to her and choosing love over posessions.

“Material girl” was Madonna’s third nominated video of her career. It obtained two nominations at the 1985 MTV Video Music Awards and her first Best female video nomination. These were: Best Female Video (lost to Tina Turner, What’s love got to do with it) and Best Choreography (lost to Elton John, Sad songs).
