Nile Rodgers: “Do as Madonna says. She knows best.”
Nile Rodgers, interviewed by Q Magazine, talked about how Material Girl was much better than Like A Virgin. He also stated his golden rule of life: “Do as Madonna says”.
Check his words out:
Do as Madonna says. When I did Like A Virgin, I thought Material Girl was the best song to lead with. Madonna was convinced it was Like A Virgin. But I was like, ‘Material Girl’s ten times better.’
She taught me that it was about being a girl, losing your virginity, and how relevant a lyric like that would be. Sometimes there’s an intellectual component to a record that can trump its primal component.
