Madonna - Like A Prayer - 12 Inch Extended Mix
This is the original 80's 12 inch version of Like A Prayer. The song incorporates a lively mix of gospel choir singing, electric guitar and eighties pop, and was originally released in March 1989. It was the title track and lead single from Madonna's fourth album.
The original video caused much controversy as it featured imagery including burning crosses and suggestive images of a girl in love with a black priest (played by Madonna). At the time Madonna was part of a Pepsi Cola advertising campaign, and when religious groups started boycotting the product, Madonna's contract with Pepsi was dropped.
