  • Henry from Sanford, Florida, UsaI was in college when this song was being played in the dance clubs in Hartford, CT. Thought it was just as good, if not better than "Holiday" and "Lucky Star."
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdEverybody-a brilliant beginning to a brilliant life. A great single and call-to-arms, it presents Madonna as some who brings joy to our lives. 30 years later, that fact is still True. Lady Madonna, you are brilliant!
  • Kevin from Mobile, AlThe 80's were such a cool time. I was just a little kid back then. I used to be jealous of my older brothers and my sister, because they were teens and could go out and participate, while I could only watch.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThe song is too simple but I think Madonna feels close to this song.
  • Daniel from Rio De Janeiro, BrazilMadonna's 1st single
    Apparently, she's not featured on the cover because the label wanted people to think she was a black singer.
