Boy Toy Rock: Sex Sirens of the Decade

Ben Fong-Torres, San Francisco Chronicle, 21 April 1985

IF THE reports from her first concert in Seattle are any indication, you can expect Madonna to ask San Francisco, early in her show at the Civic Auditorium, "Do you want to play with me?" On the song, 'Angel', she will slither suggestively on the speaker stands, singing on her back like Prince and Cyndi Lauper before her. Performing one of her fistful of Top Ten hits, 'Material Girl', she'll toss phony dollar bills to the front rows while the band showers her with fake diamonds, furs and money.

Total word count of piece: 1785
