Madonna - This Used To Be My Playground

Madonna and I don't normally get along. I don't like her much, and if she knew me, she probably wouldn't like me much either. I've been mostly indifferent to her music. But this song, THIS SONG... is different. I would never have known it even existed except that I happened to be going through a music store in Paraguay of all places and came across an album with music from the Summer Olympics in Barcelona. I don't remember why I bought it. It certainly wasn't because Madonna was on it. But when I heard this song, it was my childhood in a nutshell. A song that shows some depth. Too bad it never made it to the radio.
