True Blue

True Blue by Madonna was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 11, 1986 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "True Blue" was a favorite expression of Madonna's then-husband, Sean Penn. At the time she was very much in love with her husband and the whole album, which she co-wrote, was inspired by her feelings for him. She wrote this song with Stephen Bray, who would become her collaborator throughout the '80s. This retro dance-pop song was inspired by the '60s girl groups of Motown, like The Supremes and Martha & the Vandellas, and uses a chord progression commonly heard in doo-wop numbers.
