Retro Music

Last year, I posted videos from the music of my youth that I was still quite fond of.

Well, confession time: when I was 14 I went through a Madonna phase.

Wipe that smirk off your face! Don't tell me that you didn't have one, too.

I really liked her stuff and listened to it all the time. My introduction to her work came at the age of thirteen with this video of Like a Prayer:

A few days ago, my wife and I heard the playfully romantic pop song True Blue, which is among our favorites:

My favorite Madonna song is the obscure but joyful celebration of childhood Dear Jessie. I especially like its use of stringed instruments:

I'm still in my Madonna phase. Yeah, mostly I like the hardcore, the metal, the obscure indie rock. But also, Prince and Madonna. Madonna is just... Madonna.

I'm still in my John Denver phase, which started when we had an 8-track player.
