Video: “Burning Up” by Madonna

Madonna will play two shows in Seattle, one on October 2nd, the other on October 3rd. This will be the first time for many Seattleites to see her perform live, as she has not visited our city since her very first tour. To celebrate her arrival, I am featuring Madonna’s videos, along with a bit of commentary, every so often in this publication. Enjoy.

Ah, “Burning Up.” I still want to get my hair just like Madonna’s in this video. Those rubber bracelets have made a comeback. Also I think the chains in this video popularized the bondage theme in so many other bands’ videos. “You’re always closing the door/well that only makes me want you more,” the lyrics of this song are just great. Apparently the director of the video nearly got Madonna killed while making the video.
