Album of the Day
SONG OF THE DAY - "Express Yourself"
Madonna and producer Stephen Bray started their collaboration on LIKE A PRAYER with the track “Express Yourself”; it was an auspicious beginning for the multi-platinum collection. Couched in Sly Stone-esque funk flourishes, the Top 10 single is among the performer's most exuberant, and was accompanied by a big-budget video directed by filmmaker David Fincher. But what really makes the song resonate is its message. “I wrote 'Express Yourself' to tell women around the world to pick and choose the best for yourself,” said the singer in an interview. “It's my take on how men can express what they want - the same prerogative should be there for a woman, too.” On the eve of International Women's Day, heed Madonna's advice and “Express Yourself.”
