At this point in history, Madonna is probably one of the most important figures of the last hundred years. And this is not an exaggeration. Since her beginnings in the tough and competitive city of New York, where pop was just an effervescent movement along with thousand of more radical performances in the Lower East. Madonna is not a star to appear from nowhere, on the contrary, she was everywhere. She came to New York in 1977: where Ramones, Patti Smith, Television, Blondie, Talking Heads reigned, but Madonna was a Punk Rocker Madonna, like Sheena, like Judy.
From “Everybody”, a tune that tells everyone to dance and form a band, to”Like a Virgin”, where her scandoulous and daring dances shocked the MTV ceremony before a stunned and hungry audience avid for more and more. Madonna released her first single when she was 25, a rather advanced age compared to fast food teen stars that sell in the pop market. Madonna from the beginnings wanted to take you to bed. There were no teens involved, or girl to corporation woman either. Her story was about dancing singing and rockin´ out. Madonna was Rock n Roll, the experimental band Sonic Youth, even dared to publish a tribute album with the name Ciccone Youth
