"On paper, the lyrics look dumb. Madonna is no Whitney or Celine. The synthezer is SOOO 80s!
But, somehow, it all works. I love this song and I don't know why. Maybe it's Madonna star appeal or something. I don't know. But this is one of my favorite songs ever."
Early Madonna Doesn't Get Much Better Than This!

"Lucky Star was the second single Madonna released in the UK. It was the first of only five songs from her not to go Top 10 in the UK, when it charted at No.14 in the UK in March 1984 - just two months after the release of her debut single, Holiday. The song spent nine weeks on the chart, and was huge in the clubs. Despite it's rather unsuccessful performance in the charts, the song has slowly become a Madonna classic over time.
Lucky Star begins with an excellent beat that sounds like shimmering sunshine reflecting off sea water. This carries on in the background as the infectious and funky beat takes over and introduces us to Madonna's first line, "You must be my lucky star, 'cos you make the darkness seem so far." The lyrics aren't exactly genius, but they do serve as a pointer to what message the song puts across. It's a song filled with emotions on love and happiness, yet this does not show in Madonna's vocals. As good as they are, they are very laid-back...very Deborah Harry. The verses are very short and are followed up instantly by the chorus. The highlight of the song comes with the breakdown, where Madonna sings the lyrics, "Come on, shine your heavenly body tonight, 'cos I know you're gonna make everything alright!" The song carries on in its upbeat fashion, maintaining the funky tempo and trouble-free lyrics right until the end.
The video to Lucky Star is very plain and boring. Along with a white backdrop and several dancers, Madonna dances around in her iconic trashy gear that became the ultimate fashion statement of the early 80's. Overall, Lucky Star is, like every song released from her debut album, a Madonna classic which has aged well and stands the test of time."

"A-side: "Lucky Star" (U.S. Remix) (5:34)/B-side: "I Know It" (3:44). The A-side is also found on the newly remastered MADONNA album under the title of "New Mix". The song is similar to the original, however, it is a great item to add to your collection if you want a remix of "Lucky Star"."
