Madonna didn't want to release 'Lucky Star.' Around the same time, she was getting sued and needed money. I said, 'Let me release 'Lucky Star,' and I guarantee you'll sell enough records to pay that off.' 'Lucky Star' broke the first album wide open." - Jeff Ayeroff (record executive)
I just wanted to do the best job I could do for her. When we would play back 'Holiday' or 'Lucky Star', you could see that she was overwhelmed by how great it all sounded. You wanted to help her, you know? As much as she could be a bitch, when you were in groove with her, it was very cool, very creative." - John "Jellybean" Benitez (songwriter)
''The thing about Madonna is that she has good instincts. You have to listen to her vision.'' - John "Jellybean" Benitez (songwriter)
