Lucky Star – Madonna
Recorded February into March 2013
As I started to work on this song, I went online to read up on its history. I found out that "Lucky Star" was originally recorded from February to March in 1983. Exactly 30 years ago!
The original production was done by Reggie Lucas. He had previously done some great work for Stephanie Mills and Phyllis Hyman. Madonna wasn't happy with the end result and ended up having the song "remixed".
I approached this song with the intent of giving it a similar feel as Lucas' previous hits. The only thing missing is a pair of roller skates!
