Letra y vídeo de Like A Prayer

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

I hear your voice, it's like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You're in control just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like a dream, no end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream
Let the choir sing

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel a power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me
Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there
Your voice can take me there, just like a prayer

Sobre Like A Prayer

  • Madonna vendió a Pepsi los derechos de la canción 'Like a prayer' para ser usada en un anuncio televisivo pero ésta solo se llegó a emitir una vez después de que la marca contemplara horrorizada en el estreno de su videoclip que allí salía de todo: un crimen machista, abusos policiales a gente de raza negra, cruces del Klu Klux Klan... y la propia Madonna montándoselo con un santo negro. La indignación de muchos consumidores llamando al boicot asustó a Pepsi que, eso sí, pagó religiosamente sus emolumentos - 5 millones de dólares - a la artista.

  • Madonna grabó "Like a Prayer" para su álbum de estudio de 1989 del mismo nombre. Sire Records lo lanzó como el sencillo principal del álbum el 3 de marzo de 1989.

  • Escrita y producida por Madonna y Patrick Leonard, "Like a Prayer" señaló un enfoque más artístico y personal de la composición de canciones de Madonna, que sintió la necesidad de atender más a su público adulto.

  • El video de la canción fue bastante controvertido, principalmente por su representación de Madonna besando a un santo de color y otras imágenes religiosas supuestamente sacrílegas.

  • ¿El significado de la canción... es acerca de Dios o sexual?.... ¡Ambos! Ella está cortejando la controversia intencionalmente usando letras que podrían funcionar igualmente bien como una oda a la lujuria y un himno extático.
