April 24, or October 6th, 1982?
There's some discrepancy about Everybody. Some say it was today when it all began, others say it was October 6, 1982? What Have You Got for Me?
Nina got it straight:
'Everybody' was released in October 1982. The confusion with April is because Madonna was actually signed to Sire Records, for a singles-deal, in April 1982. Then after the success of 'Everybody' and 'Burning Up' on the Billboard dance/club and Bubbling Under Hot 100 singles charts, Warner Bros. (Sire's parent company) jumped in and signed her to a full-on record deal in 1983, through Sire. So basically she signed a singles-deal with Sire in April 1982, got 'Everybody' released in October 1982, then signed the record deal with Sire/Warner Bros. in 1983, with the debut album following that summer. The rest is history... THE MOST SPECTACULAR CAREER IN POP MUSIC.
Madonna signed to Sire Records. Everybody was released. I can go on and on about Everybody but I think it would be cool if we all shared what our favorite thing about it is. I always loved the dub on the B side of the 12". It was and always has been about that dirty bass line and that voice from the heavens. Forever and ever. Amen.
love the inhaling at the end.
