I’ll be honest here. “Africa” by Toto and “Out of Touch” by Hall & Oates have been tied as my favorite songs for the past two years. I love them. I sing along just about every time I hear them.
For the past nine months, I’ve been in love with another song. It’s been right below the other two on my list of top ten songs. Madonna’s 1989 hit “Like A Prayer” has officially surpassed the other two to take the top spot. It’s basically perfect. Each and every one of my friends can attest to the fact that I absolutely adore it.
To me, it was Madonna’s last great hit (Vogue is good, but not great). I love “La Isla Bonita”, “Borderline”, “Holiday”, “Dress You Up”, and “Open Your Heart”. They’re all great, but none of them beats “Like A Prayer.”
