Madonna sang about luck and gratitude

In 1983, a young white woman with a thin voice, in the midst of punk, was successful with R&B hits and a different name, Madonna. No last name. First Everybody, then Holiday and – in full MTV – Lucky Star.

The video is simple Madonna dances with two dancers (her best friend and her brother, Christopher), in an outfit that would become the most copied of the 1980s. Beautiful, simple, sexy, and fun. A video that would make Madonna a star.

Lucky Star, which is a song used by Apple TV Video‘s Luck, is a simple song signed by Madonna alone. It was used as a single BEFORE Holiday, but it was only successful afterward. It was with this video that the seed of “madonna’s wannabes”, or imitations of the singer, was planted. With thrift store clothes, bare stomach, and composition immortalized by many artists after her.

The lyrics are based on a lullaby today: “Starlight, shining star, first star I see at night…” but dedicated to the person who brought Madonna luck. Yes, the song was written for an (ex) boyfriend of the singer. Mark Kamis.

When Madonna was just a ballerina and still establishing herself as a musician, Danceteria was the hottest place in New York. Legend says that the artist decided to show her demo to the DJ of the place, Mark, and hoped he’d play it. Which he did to positive response.

But in addition to being a DJ, Mark also had contact with record companies and claims that they helped her get her first contract. The idea would be that he would produce it, but only Everybody carries his signature, with Reggie Lucas, and her then-boyfriend, John Jellybean Benitez. Lucky Star next became Madonna’s first top five hit on the Billboard 100.

Dancing on a white background, accompanied by her dancers, Lucky Star was indeed a hit. From that video, “style and Madonna became seen as a trendy manner among the younger generation, especially as the clothes were her own to her “every day”, as a statement of fashion among fans. Crucifix fashion accessories include necklaces and bracelets.

Lucky Star‘s was included on four tours of Madonna Virgin Tour, Who That Girl, Confess and Rebel Heart15–2016).
