Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This exuberant and strong track was released as the second single from Madonna's "Like A Prayer" album and peaked at Number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song highlights Madonna's feisty and knowing vocals, backed with a celebratory instrumentation that satisfied repeated listening. There is an anthemic quality to the song, as Madonna encourages her listeners to find self-value and self-worth, even when challenged by a non-committal lover. Sample lyrics include:

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

Madonna repeats "You deserve the best in life" which underscores her values of mutual respect and dignity in a romantic (and every) relationship. "Express Yourself" is a satisfying synthesis of intelligent, forceful, uplifting vocals combined with similarly uplifting and energetic instrumentation. For new listeners to Madonna's catalog, or longtime fans completing a collection, I very highly recommend adding "Express Yourself" to your music library. Rated 5 stars and A+.

Rob.

I purchased this MP3 to incorporate some "old school" songs into my band's dance sets. We've made a medley of Madonna's "Express Yourself" & "Vogue" with Lady Gaga's "Born This Way".
