Madonna – Live To Tell
Originally, producer/songwriter Pat Leonard composed this as part of a score for the movie Fire With Fire, however, and instrumental of it was shown to Madonna. When she heard it, she wanted it for herself and to add to her new boyfriend, Sean Penn’s movie, At Close Range.
She wrote the lyrics and reworked a few parts so they fit and added it to the soundtrack as well as her album, ‘True Blue’. It was the first single released from the album, and even though it became her third #1 song, you hardly ever hear it anymore, anywhere.
