Biography

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

Format:Audio CD
Open Your Heart was the fourth single of five to be released from Madonna's multi-million selling No.1 third album True Blue. Released in the UK in December 1986, the song peaked at No.4 in the UK where it spent only 9 weeks on the chart and was the lowest charting single from the album. The song is criminally underrated because of this and deserved a lot more attention around the time of its release. It did, however, go to No.1 in the US, becoming her fifth US No.1 single.

Open Your Heart opens with a brassy and epic traditional pop beat that drives like the wind, setting the scene for the subject of the song and the mood it portrays. This beat is sparkly and instantly recognisable as one of Madonna's most unusual, before it dims down as Madonna begins her singing. "I see you on the street and you walk on by. You make me wanna hang my head down and cry. If you gave me half the chance you'd see, my desire burning up inside of me. But you choose to look the other way," sings Madonna. Her target is focused and she's determined to win over this man who obviously likes her but refuses to make a move. Madonna is taut and determined in her ways of persuasion. She's taking no rubbish and wants him to see sense. Madonna then goes on to sing a great bridge and an even more fantastic chorus. She then begins her second verse. Her determination seems to increase in this second verse, until she's telling us exactly what she'll do to get this man in the bridge, "Well I've got something to say. Don't try to run, I can keep up with you, nothing can stop me from trying, you've got to..." And then she goes into the second chorus with its classic lines, "Open your heart to me, baby. I hold the lock and you hold the key. Open your heart to me, darlin'. I'll give you love if you, you turn the key.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best remix March 1, 2000
By Oliver
Format:Audio CD
This single contains a 10 minute long remix of Open Your Heart. This remix version is one of the best remixes I have ever heard. If you don't have it, you're really missing a great remix.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen's Masterpiece June 28, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This song takes my breath away it is so excellent. How can some people not relate to this? I certainly can. You like a guy but he doesn't notice you. The beat is thrilling, the lyrics rock, Madonn's voice sounds great. I love you soooo much, Madonna!

3.0 out of 5 stars opened my heart September 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having followed Dame Madonna since 'Holiday' I am one of those updating their collection to CD, 'Open Your Heart' (this version) is totally 80's and therefore fantastic. It's the 'Hey....are you gonna go out with me or what....scared o' me or something' towards the end that cements it for me as an 80's Madonna lover (and as I was verging on puberty at the time,yes I was!). I had it on vinyl as a child but it had been consigned to the loft long ago due to the digital revolution, but it is the welcome return of a much under-rated old friend. I know people knock 80's overdubs but in their place they did good! although this is one of the longest remixes I owned as a kid, it still is one of the best for nostagia (even though then it was ahead of it's time)I really would recommend this to anyone that likes pop music.

4.0 out of 5 stars #1 dance hit from 1987. July 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This Madonna cd features 2 remixes of "Open Your Heart" . The first mix is the vocal 12" mix (10:35) and is too long and should have been around 6 or 7 minutes long.That is my only complaint of the cd . The Dub Mix is 6 1/2 minutes and shows that a shorter tighter mix works best. This song was the first Madonna track that went to number one when I began tracking Billboard's club charts in late 1986. She had a few before "Open Your Heart" and many after it(27 #1's in all)so you can trace her progress of her career from song to song. Some songs are classics and some are not ("Hanky Panky -not)--this remix is close but way too long,
