Song of the Day: 'Shine a Light' by the Breakfast Club

Madonna may not be able to remember what happened in her pre-fame life. But Alexandra Serio has put together an impressive timeline of the major events in Ms. Ciccone's rising career from 1978 through 1983 that's definitely worth a look HERE. In it, she points us to three songs from Madonna's Breakfast Club period -- none of that Otto Von Wernherr bullshit -- on which she sings lead. Although her phrasing is a bit off, "Shine a Light" definitely does just that -- on her burgeoning skills as a pop star. Enjoy.

And ...

This (live?) version of "Burning Up" by her post-punk, post-Breakfast Club band, Emmy and the Emmys, is really raw and really a trip -- and not the one featured on "Pre-Madonna."
