Pat Leonard is God
Pat Leonard is God. No really, stick with me – I have proof!
Now, anyone with a pair of ears knows that Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer‘ is quite obviously the best song of all time. Now we have that established, we should turn ourselves to the single.
The choir-tastic Like A Prayer hit No.1 in every country that matters, and rightly so. All those clever, tasteful people in the UK who bought the single also got the bonus B-side; the not-quite-as-good Act Of Contrition.
Upon flipping over their newly purchased slab of vinyl the early buyers would have seen that the reason the single was quite so amazing was because there appeared to have been some higher power involved in its creation.
Odd and intriguing, I think you’ll agree. But quite exciting in an X-Files, Dan Brown mysterious kind of way.
Sadly, the mystery of who the ‘Powers That Be‘ were, didn’t take especially long to be revealed as, by the time the second pressings of the single rolled around, Sire UK decided to own up that The Lord hadn’t been twiddling the knobs for ‘Act’, it had in fact been…. *drum roll* :
Thus – Madonna is God. But we all knew that already. But the big news is that Pat Leonard is also God. Case closed. And here he is with his slightly unnervingly piercing gaze…he knows about your reservation, your name’s in his computer etc etc…
