21 years on.....Like A Prayer is back!
I remember it well, it was March 1989. I was 13 years old had a face full of spots and had just started to buying records with my £5 pocket money.
Having never bought a Madonna record I was a little bit nervous of wasting my hard earned fiver on an artist I wasn't really bothered about. However overnight I became Madges biggest fan.
For me it is one of those rare albums that has no fillers. Every song was good enough to be released as a single. 'Like a Prayer' instantly became one of her most loved albums.
It is amazing that 21 years on Madonna's 'Like A Prayer' song has just re entered the charts.....without her even singing on it. That has to be some kind of world record!?
Madonna fan site Madonna Tribe reports the song has been remixed and re-released as a result of being featured in last years Sticky & Sweet Tour. Meck were responsible for the remix and they have certainly given it a new lease of life.
It reports 'Feels Like A Prayer' became Meck and Dino's new hit. Not sure if it was a matter or rights or what, but for sure it looks both exciting and a bit sad to see 'Like A Prayer' climbing the US Billboard Dance / Club Play Songs Chart at a stellar #14 for the week ending July 10, 2010, and not being able to listen to the unique Madonna voice.
So here it is. 'Like A Prayer' in a 2010 remix. Let me know what you think!
