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!
