Song Lyric Sunday- 5/1/22-Madonna

Prompt words are …suit, shirt, dress, pants.

Of all the songs that I considered fitting the prompt, this is my favorite. Madonna has so many great songs! It’s a song that even the naive can sing and never realize the ‘naughty’ message. LOL
I doubt that I’ll be the only one who chooses it. 😉

Dress You Up” is a song by American singer Madonna from her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). It was released as the fifth and final single from Like a Virgin on July 31, 1985, by Sire Records. The song was the last track to be added to the album as it was submitted late by songwriters Andrea LaRusso and Peggy Stanziale. Madonna pushed for the song’s inclusion on Like a Virgin as she particularly liked its lyrics. Musically, “Dress You Up” is a drum beat driven dance song featuring instrumentation from guitars and vocals from a choir, and a guitar solo played by Nile Rodgers, who also produced the song. The lyrics are an extended metaphor for fashion and lust, comparing dressing up with passion.

“Dress You Up”

You’ve got style, that’s what all the girls say
Satin sheets and luxuries so fine
All your suits are custom-made in London
But I’ve got something that you’ll really like

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body

Feel the silky touch of my caresses
They will keep you looking so brand new
Let me cover you with velvet kisses
I’ll create a look that’s made for you

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body
Gonna dress you up in my love, in my love
All over your body, all over your body
In my love
All over, all over
From your head down to your toes

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body
Gonna dress you up in my love, in my love
All over your body, all over your body
In my love
All over, all over
From your head down to your toes

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body
Gonna dress you up in my love, in my love
All over your body, all over your body
In my love
All over, all over
From your head down to your toes

Gonna dress you up in my love
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
Gonna dress you up in my love
In my love
All over your body
All over your body

Gonna dress you up in my love
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
Gonna dress you up in my love
In my love
All over your body, yeah love me boy

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body
All over, all over
From your head down to your toes
Gonna dress you up in my love
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body, yeah love me boy

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over

    Madonna always knew how to dress to get noticed, she looks really cute in this video. Thanks for sharing your music Christine.

        🤣 I just figured Christine had something to do with producing the song. LOL You’re so knowledgeable of songs, I wouldn’t ever second guess you. 😁

        Madonna went through a lot of different styles, but I like the way she dressed before she became really popular and started wearing all of those outrageous outfits.

        Me too. She seemed playful at first. Fame seems to corrupt people more often than not.

    I liked Madonna back in these days. She’s not bad now, of course, but I especially liked her during this period. Good choice!

Tell me something good...
