Take Note - with John Murray

The outrageous Madonna released the video for B**** I’m Madonna (Interscope) single this week with Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus cameos along with her sons Rocco and David and viewed over 11 million times already. The remix EP is due on August 21 with 10 new mixes yet even the title is banned for radio and in print in this family newspaper. She plays Glasgow Hydro on December 20.

Have you ever heard the follow up to a hit single and thought it was just like the old song?

No wonder as so many artists try to avoid the label ‘one hit wonder’.

So maybe no surprise that Buddy Holly used Peggy Sue Got Married as the sequel to Peggy Sue. This and 23 others appear this week on Second Helpings (Ace).

While some sound a lot like the one before like Man, We Had A Party by Wanda Jackson which followed Let’s Have A Party, some just had differing titles with completely different production like The Marvellettes follow up to Please Mr Postman which was Twistin’ Postman.

Meantime, can you guess the previous releases to ‘part two’ – sounds like I’m Still Dreaming (Johnny Burnette), Remember Diana (Paul Anka) or More Money (That’s What I Want) from the 1962 release from Jennell Hawkins?
