Madonna - 30th Anniversary Mixtape 

Today, 30 years ago, Madonna's debut single Everybody was released. The sleeve did not feature her and it was mainly a club record as it missed to enter the Billboard Hot 100. We absolutely love that beginning! So underground and really opening up for anything to happen. Everybody was recorded in New York during the summer of 1982 on her own budget, Madonna was 24 and had a $5,000 advance from the label and a two 12 inch single deal with Sire Records. We all know what came of it - some 300 million records sold since. It's mind boggling to even think about what she's accomplished since those early Danceteria club nights!  

We've been thinking about a fun way to say Happy Anniversary  - and came to think of the notes in Something To Remember from 1995. 
"So much controversy has swirled around my career this past decade that very little attention ever gets paid to my music."

So to kick off the celebration we penetrated the surface and have put together 12 amazing album cuts that stretch from her 1983 debut album to 2012's MDNA. For us, M has always been about the music first - and we love the rawness and frankness of these tracks. From her singing about the loss of her mother to social commentary to the wetness of oral sex. It's all there! For Madonna performing Everybody for the very first time in 1982 click here! Enjoy!
Also, if you head on over to M's official site she's having a contest to celebrate with some awesome prizes.
