True Blue



Lyrics

Hey! What?
Listen

I've had other guys
I've looked into their eyes
But I never knew love before
'Til you walked through my door
I've had other lips
I-I-I've sailed a thousand ships
But no matter where I go
You're the one for me baby
This I know 'cause it's

True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you

I've heard all the lines
I've cried oh so many times
Those tear drops they won't fall again
I'm so excited 'cause you're my best friend
So if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear I said

True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you
'Cause it's
True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you

No-o more sadness
I kiss it good-bye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don't you know, don't you know that it's

True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's true

So if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear I said

No-o more sadness
I kiss it good-bye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don't you know, don't you know that it's

True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you
I love you

(This time I know it's true love) lala lalalala
(The one I'm dreaming of) lala lalalala
(Your heart fits just like a glove)
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you

'Cause it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's true

Lala lalalalala

Single

True Blue, the singleThe title track was released as third single. Many will agree this song is the least representative of Madonna's work and certainly of her image. Between all the controversies, this silly 'doo-wop' love song just seems a little odd. Nonetheless it became a #1 hit in the UK and Japan, while it got to #2 in Canada and #3 (Gold) in the US.


Video

True Blue, the videoThere are two different videos for True Blue. The official video - released in Europe - was directed by James Foley. It shows Madonna and three backup singers (including her friend Debi Mazar) as some all-American bubblegum-chewing girls chatting about their true love. Compared to the controversial Like A Virgin and Open Your Heart, this song and video were totally different from Madonna's style. A second video for True Blue - released in the US - was made by Angel Gracia and Cliff Guest, winners of the MTV 'Make My Video'-contest.




Tour

True Blue @ Who's That Girl TourOn the Who's That Girl Tour, Madonna got out a pretty white dress for this lovey-dovey song. Her girlfriends back her up behind her. Then her guy (the dancer) invites her for a sweet dance.


True Blue @ Rebel Heart Tour While True Blue has been shunned from all the compilation albums, 28 years later Madonna rediscovered the song on the Rebel Heart Tour and treated her hardcore fans to a sweet rendition. Stripping away all the 1980s elements of the song, Madonna performs an acoustic version of True Blue on her ukulele during the second segment of the show, after her first speech of the night. In a 1950s inspired group setting with her dancers, Madonna makes the sun burst out of the sky with her beautiful voice.
