4. "Express Yourself"
More Madonna songs should begin with a call to arms. "Come on, girls! Do you believe in love?" she exclaims. "'Cause I've got something to say about it / And it goes something like this." What follows is a brute-force testament to self-respect, candor, and demanding what you deserve. The "Immaculate Collection" version of "Express Yourself" intensifies the original with blippy beats and an astounding conclusion. Even without the visual tribute to Fritz Lang's "Metropolis," "Express Yourself" is an assault on the oppressive nature of romantic reticence.
