Crazy for You Madonna – Madonna Sheet Music
Vocal range: F3-C5
Madonna’s second album is definitely her best selling one, and is the album that launched Madonna into superstardom. Crazy For You was Madonna’s first number 1 ballad. The song also became an MTV staple when Madonna made her debut on the music channel with this song. Madonna actually made her debut on MTV in 1984, but was not allowed to perform Crazy For You because it had yet to be released as a single. Madonna continued to play up for the cameras and Madonna’s antics caught the attention of Michael Jackson. Madonna’s tour dancers in 1985 were recruited from the cast of The Mickey Mouse Club, Madonna’s co-star in the 1984 movie Desperately Seeking Susan was also one of her dancers. Madonna’s first tour took place in 1985 and Madonna opened for The Virgin Tour with Duncan Sheik. Madonna has always been known for reinventing herself on every album, but Madonna actually had to put together a completely new image. Madonna wanted to shed the “new waver” image and Madonna’s new look was Madonna. Madonna would dye Madonna’s hair blond, wear tons of make-up and clothing that pushed the limits of good taste in Madonna videos such Madonna showed her belly button (at least part of it) in “Papa Don’t Preach”. Madonna also appeared to be topless in Madonna videos Madonna and Like A Virgin Madonna was not able to perform Crazy For You on the 1985 tour because Madonna’s label felt that it would be inappropriate for Madonna to perform a ballad during the beginning of her first tour. Madonna probably regrets not being able to promote Crazy For You, but it has definitely paid off well for Madonna.
