Dress You Up

I think this is one of my favorite Madonna songs, “Dress You Up.”


“Dress You Up” is a song by American singer Madonna from her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). It was released on July 31, 1985. (From Wikipedia)

In case you want to sing along. 

Dress You Up by Madonna

You’ve got style

That’s what all the girls say

Satin sheets

And luxuries so fine

All your suits are custom made in London

I’ve got something that you’ll really like

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over, all over

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over your body

Feel the silky touch of my caresses

They will keep you looking so brand new

Let me cover you with velvet kisses

I’ll create a look that’s made for you

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over, all over

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over your body

Gonna dress you up in my love

In my love

All over your body

All over your body

In my love

All over, all over

From your head down to your toes

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over, all over

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over your body

Gonna dress you up in my love

In my love

All over your body

All over your body

In my love

All over, all over

From your head down to your toes

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over, all over

Dress you up in my love

In my love

All over your body

Gonna dress you up in my love

All over, all over

Dress you up in my love

In my love

All over your body

Day After The Super Bowl

Well the football team I picked to win the Super Bowl did — the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots. Congratulations to the New York Giants!

The game wasn’t that exciting, I wish there was more big plays. The halftime show was good. I wasn’t too sure when they announced that Madonna would be playing how good it would be. It was entertaining, but I wish she would of played more of her older songs. The song that had the drum lines playing were cool. I was disappointed in M.I.A. and her little stunt of swearing and flipping the bird. What was that all about? It seems more people are talking about that then Madonna’s performance. If I was Madonna, I would be pissed at her for taking away my limelight!

Besides the game, there were the commercials. There were a couple of good ones and there were some rally bad ones.

Here are the ones that I liked.

 

 

 

Here are the ones that I didn’t like as much.

Now we have to wait till the season starts up again in the fall. And you know who I’m going to be rooting for… The Detroit Lions! This will be the season that the Lions win it all!

On Sunday, December 4th, it was announced that Madonna will be the halftime performer at the Super Bowl XLVI (February 5, 2012) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Madonna has been slated as the performer for the Super Bowl halftime show, with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj performing as well; all three are performing on Madonna’s upcoming single, “Give Me All Your Love,” which will be performed as part of the show. (From Wikipedia.com)

Not to sure about the pick for the Super Bowl Halftime Performer. Madonna is a great entertainer and I’m sure she will be entertaining. I wonder what songs she will sing? I hope she sings one of my favorite Madonna songs — “Borderline“.

But here is a list of other performers that I would have like to seen at the Super Bowl halftime (this list does not mean that I actually like these performers):
