‘Live To Tell’ was the first of three #1 hits for Madonna from her third album True Blue. A pop ballad- she said that she thought about her relationship with her parents when she wrote the lyrics. Madonna had 7 #1 hits in the 1980’s- and she didn’t really get going until 1984. I’ve always thought of her as a great singles artists. her albums-rather run of the mill.
