Open Your Heart To This Underrated Madonna Classic!
Busy Body | London, England | 05/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Open Your Heart was the fourth single of five to be released from Madonna's multi-million selling No.1 third album True Blue. Released in the UK in December 1986, the song peaked at No.4 in the UK where it spent only 9 weeks on the chart and was the lowest charting single from the album. The song is criminally underrated because of this and deserved a lot more attention around the time of its release. It did, however, go to No.1 in the US, becoming her fifth US No.1 single.

Open Your Heart opens with a brassy and epic traditional pop beat that drives like the wind, setting the scene for the subject of the song and the mood it portrays. This beat is sparkly and instantly recognisable as one of Madonna's most unusual, before it dims down as Madonna begins her singing. "I see you on the street and you walk on by. You make me wanna hang my head down and cry. If you gave me half the chance you'd see, my desire burning up inside of me. But you choose to look the other way," sings Madonna. Her target is focused and she's determined to win over this man who obviously likes her but refuses to make a move. Madonna is taut and determined in her ways of persuasion. She's taking no rubbish and wants him to see sense. Madonna then goes on to sing a great bridge and an even more fantastic chorus. She then begins her second verse. Her determination seems to increase in this second verse, until she's telling us exactly what she'll do to get this man in the bridge, "Well I've got something to say. Don't try to run, I can keep up with you, nothing can stop me from trying, you've got to..." And then she goes into the second chorus with its classic lines, "Open your heart to me, baby. I hold the lock and you hold the key. Open your heart to me, darlin'. I'll give you love if you, you turn the key." The song carries on with its fabulous chorus as the song gradually fades out with Madonna's determination seemingly decreasing as it seems to be working on the man she's going after.

The video to Open Your Heart is brilliant. It opens with a young boy trying to sneak into a peep show of whom Madonna is the star. He is refused and has to wait outside until Madonna has finished her act. We finally get to see Madonna on a chair in her legendary conical bra - first with a black wig, before revealing her true bleached-blonde hair that dominated all but one (La Isla Bonita) of the videos from the True Blue album. All in all, Open Your Heart is a fantastic song with a brilliant video to match - another Madonna classic!"
The best remix

"This single contains a 10 minute long remix of Open Your Heart. This remix version is one of the best remixes I have ever heard. If you don't have it, you're really missing a great remix."

"This song takes my breath away it is so excellent. How can some people not relate to this? I certainly can. You like a guy but he doesn't notice you. The beat is thrilling, the lyrics rock, Madonn's voice sounds great. I love you soooo much, Madonna!"
