In late 1987, You Can Dance was released. It kind of came out of nowhere and was such a wonderful surprise. My neighbor worked at R&R - Radio & Records, so he would always give me the promotional Madonna albums that would come in. In those days they would receive the albums a week or two before the release date. So, one day he came home with You Can Dance.
I love You Can Dance. Spotlight - a new song! Still one of my favorites with one of those fabulous Madonna bridges. The reworking of the other songs. Physical Attraction and other non singles getting the respect they deserved. It was just so fantastic. And all non-stop. Love the album art and all the mixes and just everything about that time. It really was a great way to end 1987 and a great segue and tiding over into '88, where we as fans would see very little of Madonna.
