Punk and disco were the major musical innovations of the '70s. No one utilised these sources as shrewdly as Madonna, whose 1983 self-titled debut still sounds sharp 15 years later. A CBGB-era band waif who also loved the N.Y. dance club scene, Madonna Ciccone brought the brash, self-determining ethos of punk rock to the ecstastic melodic lift of Chic-style dance music.
That other N.Y. sex symbol, Debbie Harry of Blondie, also had her biggest hits ("Heart Of Glass", "Rapture") when she flirted with disco and rap, but a winking flirtation is all it remained. Her reputation as a master of imagemaking notwithstanding, Madonna never had much use for irony. Songs like the soulful "Borderline" and the celebratory "Holiday" were heartfelt stabs at commercial pop success in which the singer never condescends to the er. Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers produced her next album, and the rest ishistory.
