The Madgesty Collection...1990



Keep It Together’ was released on January 30, 1990 as the 6th and final single from the album Like a Prayer.  The single was the last collaboration with writing partner Stephen Bray that Madonna released as a single.

Keep It Together’ entered the Billboard charts at number 56, eventually peaking in the number-eight spot during the week of March 31, 1990. The song's life at radio was enhanced by a remix heavily influenced by Soul II Soul's "Back To Life" single. (Ironically, Madonna would later work with Nellee Hooper - who was part of Soul 2 Soul.) 


During the next few weeks, the song fell quickly from its peak as ‘Vogue’ began gaining massive airplay and debuted on the singles chart while ‘Keep It Together’ was still in the Top 30. It also topped the Hot Dance Music/Club Play and Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart.

I'll Remember... 1992

This Used to Be My Playground
The theme for the movie 'A League of Their Own' was written and produced by Madonna and Shep Pettibone, and recorded as one of the last songs during the sessions for her 1992 studio album Erotica. Released in the summer, the single was a worldwide hit, spending one week at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in August 1992, and became Madonna's tenth chart topper, breaking her tie with Whitney Houston to become the female artist with the most number one singles at that time. It entered the charts in the UK top five, peaking at number three for two weeks and was another top five hit for Madonna in numerous other markets. The song earned Madonna a Golden Globe Award nomination for "Best Original Song".


Though featured in the film, it was not available on the soundtrack album, due to licensing restrictions that prohibited Madonna material from mixed or compiled with other singers on albums.  In spite of its commercial success, Madonna has never performed it in any of her concerts or media appearances. It also does not appear on succeeding greatest hits albums GHV2 (2001) and Celebration (2009). According to The Official Charts Company, the song has sold 275,000 copies there.
