My favourite Madonna song, and crazy for you, I loved this movie,at close range, Man I miss the hot summer days of the 80s ,no phones, people were cool without tattoos and beards, now look at us.self absorbed selfish and shallow.🤷
Looking back, this song must've shocked her peers that thought she was just a chirpy flash in the pan. Her last song on the radio before it was Dress You Up, then all of a sudden she turns out this profoundly stirring ballad. They must've been dumbfounded.
May 18 , 2019... listening this song... I was 14 back then.. I still have same feeling when I hear it , get chills .. now that im old I fully understand the real meaning of this song...... yes I survived and I can tell it....
Every one in this movie video was in their prime in 1986. Getting old sucks. Christopher Walken was born in Astoria Queens 1943, so he was 43. Mary Stuart Masterson was totally hot. Madonna was hot. The 80's man
The movie was "At Close Range (1986)." It was on the her 1986 album "True Blue" before being added to the movie. I was 15 and I saw it on VHS at my best friends house. It was the best movie ever and her song went perfectly with the plot :)
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
