the soundtrack to Madonna's movie Who's That Girl, hit record stores in July 1987
Madonna was the biggest star on the planet. Three smash albums in a row and 5 #1 singles. As her fans were buying concert tickets to her Who's That Girl tour, they were awaiting the soundtrack to her new movie.
Who's That Girl the movie was not a box office success, however it was a cute fun wasy to spend 95 minutes. The soundtrack faired better, as 2 of Madonna's 4 songs from the soundtrack were hits. Who's That Girl went to #1 and Causing A Commotion peaked at #2 for 3 weeks.
I have always loved the Who's That Girl era of Madonna. I've seen the movie countless times. The album is total hit and miss. We get three great songs (the two singles plus the UK single The Look Of Love) and one not-so-great song (Can't Stop). However, the low score comes from the other artists. The only non-Madonna cut I like is Michael Davidson's ultra-cheesy SAW produced "Turn It Up".
Unfortunately, neither of the hits off this album have been released on compilations, making this cd somewhat a rarity amongst Madonna fans (as many stores never stock this title).I only recommend it to Madonna diehards, and those who love 1987-era pop. Let's hope WTG and CAC will eventually make a box set or something, both are great "lost" Madonna classics.
