The corporate regards a particular period of the New Musical Categorical chart (solely from 1952 to 1960) and the Report Retailer chart from 1960 to 1969 as predecessors for the interval previous to 11 February 1969, the place multiples of competing charts (none official) coexisted facet by facet.
14. Causing A Commotion – 1987 – also from the “Who’s That Woman” album and movie, Madonna wrote this tune which was inspired by the abusive and violent nature of her husband, Sean Penn.
