This is a 1995 German CD-single reissue, released at the time when Warner Bros. Germany was reissuing the whole Madonna singles catalog (yellow-disc-with-blue-ink series). Originally, the single was released in May of 1989 as a 3-inch CD single in a small CD pocket.
This one includes 2 long (approx. 8 and 10 minutes) dance remixes: (1) Express Yourself (Non-Stop Express Mix) (2) Express Yourself (Stop & Go Dubs). Both remixed and post-produced by Shep Pettibone. The music arrangement for both versions resembles the version that was included on "The Immaculate Collection" album in 1990. This version is totally dance and electronic having more of a "Vogue" feel to it than the soulful and funky original version that appeared on the 1989 "Like a Prayer" album.
The song was a big hit form Madonna in May/June of 1989 on both sides of the Atlantic. It reached # 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 spending 16 weeks on the chart and went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in the US alone (certified Gold by RIAA). At the same time, it reached #5 and #1 on the UK and the European singles charts respectively. "Express Yourself" also proved to be a huge dance hit peaking at # 1 on the US dance charts.
A must-have item for any Madonna singles collector. These remixes have never been released on a CD domestically so they are only available as imports. They also appear on a Japanese/Australian version of the "Like a Prayer" maxi-single titled "Remixed Prayers - Mini Album EP" featuring multiple versions of "Like A Prayer" and "Express Yourself".

In June 1989, Madonna released the second single from her international No.1 album, Like A Prayer. The song was Express Yourself, and peaked at No.5 in the UK, spending a total of 10 weeks on the chart. The song was the follow-up to the massive UK No.1 single Like A Prayer. You would've thought that riding high on the success and controversy of the No.1 album and single Like A Prayer, Express Yourself would've charted a bit higher than No.5, not only because of it's a fantastic song, but because of the stunning video.

Express Yourself opens with a brilliant and brassy beat in which Madonna proudly declares, "Come on girls! You believe in love? 'Cos I've got something to sing about it! And it goes something like this!" The song then kicks into its fantastic chorus as Madonna sings, "Don't go for second best baby, put your love to the test you know, you know you've got to make him express how he feels and maybe then you'll know your love is real." The song is very upbeat and has a killer beat to it. Madonna then sings her first verse, "You don't need diamond rings or eighteen karat gold. Fancy cars that go very fast you know they never last no, no." Then we move onto the bridge with the lyrics, "What you need is a big strong hand to lift you to your higher ground. Make you feel like a queen on a throne. Make him love you until you can't come down." The fantastic chorus then blazes through, and we're then onto the second verse. "Long stem roses are the way to your heart, but he needs to start with your head. Satin sheets are very romantic, what happens when you're not in bed." We then get another bridge with the lyrics, "You deserve the best in life. So if the time isn't right then move on. Second best is never enough, you'll do much better baby on your own.

To understand what this single mix means, you should live in the eighties (I mean, have at least fifteen years old on those years). CD's were not the standard yet, and electronics were used only to give analog instruments and composition something "extra".
I became a DJ just because of this single. I could not resist when I first heard this wonderful Non-Stop Express mix, and of course, remixed with Stop & Go dubs by some DJ in her live performance. I have two vinyls that I bought then, and of course the CD single of this song.
In that decade, you used to buy vinyl-singles only if you were a DJ, and since you could only have a couple of turntables to play with (no rhythm boxes, computers, nor samplers) because equipment used to be very expensive, "dubs" were perfect complements for making your own sets.
Shep Pettibone is one of the best remixers ever, and New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" is just one sample. He was transforming simple pop singles into big smash dance hits years before David Morales.
So if you want to know how the dance floor used to be in the eighties fall, and you like Madonna, New Order, Fine Young Cannibals, Mid Night Oil, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, Paula Abdul, INXS, Rich Astley, Roxette, Kon-kan, Technotronic, Bobby Brown, etc. YOU DEFINETLY HAVE TO BUY THIS SINGLE!!!

The Local mix is the best one and it was left off. Oh well. The 2 mixes in this one are ok, so it's still worth it
