    "Material Girl" Question

    As many times as I have heard this Madonna classic, I have never been quite clear about something that I hear in the background. Throughout the song there is this "noise" that repeats frequently.

    It could be a person's voice or it could be some mechanically-created sound, but what it REALLY sounds like is a puppy yipping in the background. I could not duplicate it on here if I had to!

    If it is indeed a dog, it kind of fits into the theme of the song. After all a woman who wants diamonds and furs and all those other "material" things would also be likely to have a dog that she carries around everywhere she goes.

    So what say you experts? Bow wow or no bow wow?

    I've always thought it was Madge doing her best Betty Boop.

    Trying to find the answer to that and I learned that Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson are the accompaniment on that track. Never knew that. Not a hint of Chic in that song (although it sounds like a Nile Rodgers joint).
