Madonna :: Like a Prayer :: My Favorite Albums

Like a Prayer (1989) :: Madonna It was the year after I lost my virginity, the year after I reclaimed my innocence and lost it on my own terms, it was the year after I redesigned and redefined the girl I had been, and it was the year after my very first break-up.
