I’M IN AMSTERDAM AND I WENT FOR A JOG THIS MORNING BEFORE I WENT TO WORK.
I TOOK MY PHONE WITH ME AND CHOSE A PLAYLIST FOR RUNNING TO AND THE FIRST SONG THAT CAME ON WAS “BURNING UP” BY MADONNA.
What a great track that I’d completely forgotten about. “Burning Up” was written and recorded by Madonna for her first ever studio album in 1983. Released as the album’s second single on March 9, 1983, in some countries it was a double-A side single with “Physical Attraction”, another song from the album.
The lyrics talk of the singer’s lack of shame in declaring her passion for her lover.
I’ll say no more and give you the video. Have a dance, a jog or just a sing-a-long. Either way I’m sure it will cheer up the start of the week for you. It did for me, so much so that I changed what the original song was for this post – I’ll give you that track another time instead.
