No More Sadness, I Kiss it Goodbye.
26 years ago today Madonna released her untouchable True Blue album. It reached Number One in 28 consecutive countries and became not only the biggest selling album of 1986 but one of the greatest selling albums of all-time selling more than 25 million copies worldwide. It also spent 34 consecutive weeks at the top of the European Top 100 Albums Chart - longer than any other album in history. All 5 singles went into the Top Five on the Billboard Charts with three of those singles reaching number one: Live To Tell, Papa Don't Preach and Open Your Heart.
True Blue remains one of my favorite Madonna albums and also one of my favorite incarnations. Delving into the glorious 50's Americana period, Madonna solidified herself during this time as
The Greatest Star That Has Ever Lived.
