Houston, We Have Liftoff
Her next single, Like A Virgin, was the one that shot Madonna into superstardom. But Lucky Star certainly got her off the launch pad. A catchy tune with an infectious hook and that celestial synth swirl, Lucky Star was a dance-pop masterpiece that has stood the test of time.
