Friday Video #70: Iggy Does Madonna

This past Monday Madonna was one of five new inductees at the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in New York. At first that doesn't seem right given that Madonna is known more as a dance/pop artist rather than a rock one. But there is more than meets the eye; back in the early 80's she cut her teeth perfoming in New York City's rock clubs like Max's Kansas City and CBGB's as a rock act. Plus some of her songs do flirt with rock, like "Burning Up," "Ray Of Light," parts of her American Life album, and "I Love New York" from her last album.

Anyway Madonna herself did not perform at the ceremony, instead she asked the legendary rock star Iggy Pop to perform on her behalf. So here is Iggy and the Stooges doing "Burning Up" and "Ray Of Light."
