    General CommentUnrequited love. She loves this other person and either that person doesn't want her or has no clue. She'll do anything to fulfill her desire for this other person but the person isn't acknowledging her existence. "you don't even know I'm alive"

    Song FactAgreed with Kierra on Burning Up. After the facts about Sean and Guy, there is a marked anger, rage and defiance in Lady Madonna's voice. Her guitar work on Burning Up is equally angry and defiant! With early hit anthem Burning Up, Lady Ciccone knocked and kicked down the door! Madonna threw away the key and she was about to be unleashed as one of rock's all time greats-rock & roll was never again the same because of Madonna! Detroit Rock City Brilliance!

    General Commentthis song means cardancing. it means making elderly people and golfers look at us and make faces. it means matt dancing slutty in the front seat and elena being a totally irresponsible driver. this song means happy, carefree, teenage days.
