マドンナが24歳で発表したデビュー・シングルです。

1982年にマドンナは"Everybody" "Ain't No Big Deal" "Burning Up"を録音し、レコード会社に売り込みをしました。最初にデモ・テープをIsland Recordsに持ち込んだもののChris Blackwellに却下され、その後Sire Recordsに認められて1982年10月に"Everybody"でデビューすることになりました。当時は特別な反応は無かったようですが、その後83年3月の"Burning Up"を経てデビュー・アルバムが1983年7月27日発売されました。その後の話は有名ですね。

"Everybody" is a song by American singer Madonna from her eponymous debut studio album Madonna (1983). It was released on October 6, 1982, by the Sire label as her debut single. Madonna had recorded a demo of the song with Steve Bray. She urged DJ Mark Kamins, who played at her dance club, to play it. He was impressed by the song and took her to Sire Records, who signed her for a two-song deal. However, after the recording of the two singles was over, Sire executive Michael Rosenblatt was not interested in the other song production and decided to release only "Everybody".

By incorporating R&B infused beats in the music and not including her image on the cover artwork, marketing for the song gave the impression of Madonna as a black artist. That impression did not last long as Madonna would later convince Sire executives to shoot a music video for the song. The low-budget video directed by Ed Steinberg showed Madonna and her friends in a club singing and dancing to the song. The video helped to further promote the song and Madonna as an artist.

Critically, "Everybody" did not receive any acclaim and failed to enter the official Billboard Hot 100 chart. It did, however, appear on the dance charts. The song helped Madonna achieve her first appearance in a dance magazine.

"Everybody"

[Spoken:]
I know you've been waiting, yeah
I've been watching you, yeah
I know you wanna get up, yeah
Come on

[Chorus:]

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Let the music take control
Find a groove and let yourself go
When the room begins to sway
You know what I'm trying to say

Come on, take a chance
Get up and start the dance
Let the D.J. shake you
Let the music take you

[chorus]

Let your body take a ride
Feel the beat and step inside
Music makes the world go 'round
You can turn your troubles upside down

Gonna have to change your mind
Gonna leave your troubles behind
Your body gets the notion
When your feet can make the motion

[chorus, repeat]

Dance and sing, get up and do your thing [repeat 3 times]

[Spoken:]
I know you've been waiting, yeah, yeah
I see you sitting there, I've been watching you
Across the room, yeah, yeah
I've been watching you, I see you sitting there by yourself
Yeah, yeah
Come on, come on, come on

[chorus]

Let the music take control
Find a groove and let yourself go
When the room begins to sway
You know what I'm trying to say

[chorus, repeat and fade]
(Dance and sing, get up and do your thing) [in background]
