Today's Morning Edition music is from 25 years ago this week when Madonna's song "Like a Prayer" was number one on the U.S. pop charts. It was Madonna's 7th chart topping song. The video, which combined religious and sexual imagery, was condemned by a number of religious groups including the Vatican. Because of the controversy, Pepsi stopped airing a commercial featuring the song and ended its association with Madonna. But the video proved to be very popular. In 2005, MTV viewers voted it the "Most Groundbreaking Music Video of All Time."
