Below, singer Seth Sikes turns in “Fire Island Ferry,” his take on “On the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe” from the movie The Harvey Girls.

“I’ve been hiding out on Fire Island since COVID hit and learning the tricks of the trade: editing, sound mixing and writing,” he reports. “If we never get back to normal, then at least I’ve learned a new skill.”

Dua Lipa Announces Blessed Madonna LEVITATING Remix Feat. Madonna & Missy Elliott Comments (0)

Confessions on a Dua Floor!

Dua Lipa's already excellent “Levitating” will get the full Blessed Madonna remix treatment, and will welcome Madonna and Missy Elliott to the fold.

Dua Lipa's most recent single failed to hit the Top 40, but she usually fares well there, meaning, for Madonna fans, that the Queen of Pop may finally return to Billboard after an unfairly long absence.

Speaking of Madonna, today, July 27, marks the GASP! 37th anniversary of the release of Madonna's still-sterling self-titled album. It remains one of my favorites in her catalogue; I love every song on it.

This is the original U.S. cover, shot by Gary Heery:

And this is the cover as it might have looked (when the set was dubbed Lucky Star), with photography by Edo Bertoglio and design by Madonna's late BFF Martin Burgoyne. This was first seen perhaps 20 years ago when someone who had a color proof sold it on eBay:

It's a great shot, but SO much more disco era, no?
