Maurie..... the reason why Madonna own website claim 19 million, is because the certification is really real without estimation, and actually it isn't right.... this is the best sources of True Blue Claim...... 25 million copies, absolutely one of the best selling albums in history.

Special Recording Technique
I bought this CD new when it was first released. There was information on the Jacket talking about the special recording technique used to make this CD. "Something"-X IIRC. It was suppose to be a quantum improvement in the area of CD production. Was suppose to improve the sound quality. My CD was stolen long ago so I cannot lot to it as a reference. Can anyone here comment on this? If this information can be found, it would be nice to include it with the article on the CD. I am guessing the technology failed since I never heard about it again. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:19, 7 June 2009 (UTC)MODGOD
Where's the Party
I feel that a page should be made for "Where's the Party" as it is often regarded as Madonna's most popular non-single.
It was covered here: http://exclaim.ca/MusicVideo/ClickHear/ps_i_love_you-wheres_party_madonna_cover
It was featured on the you Can Dance remix album and is considered the most popular remix of the album.
Considering the fact that there are many articles on Wikipedia for songs that do not have more than a paragraph, this should definitely be an article — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:00, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm not so sure she was talking about the country singer - it's really hard to picture a connection between these two. On the other hand, the Hollywood legend seems like the logical one, considering Madonna's fascination with Old Hollywood. He also mentions James Dean as "Jimmy Dean" in "Vogue"; "Jimmy Dean" is like "Jimmy Stewart" for James Stewart. Alecsdaniel (talk) 13:33, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Hello everyone. True Blue became the biggest selling album of the 1980s by a woman. Regards, Chrishonduras (talk) 22:52, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
