"Who's That Girl" is the first single from Madonna's first sound track album Who's That Girl for the movie of the same name.

Background

In 1986, Madonna was shooting for her third motion picture Who's That Girl, known at the time as Slammer. Needing songs for the soundtrack of the movie, she contacted Patrick Leonard and Stephen Bray, who had written and produced her third studio album True Blue in 1986. Madonna explained to them that she needed an uptempo song and a downtempo song. She came to the studio one Thursday as Leonard developed the chorus of the song. He handed over that cassette to Madonna, who went to the backroom and finished the melody and the lyrics of the song, while Leonard worked on the other parts of the song.

Composition

The chorus and the verse of the song flow together in a coherent manner, with the chorus incorporating a haunting effect. The song epitomized Madonna's interest with Hispanic culture that continued after the release of her 1987 single "La Isla Bonita". Leonard and Madonna had added Spanish phrases in the chorus, over the trumpets of the second verse, and also in the added instrumental break in the middle. "Who's That Girl" also makes use of the sonic effect brought about by the combination of multiple vocal lines

Lyrics

Who's that girl
Who's that girl

When you see her
Say a prayer and kiss your heart goodbye
She's trouble
In a word get closer to the fire
Run faster
Her laughter burns you up inside
You're spinning round and round
You can't get up, you try but you can't

Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

You try to avoid her fate is in your hands
She's smiling
An invitation to the dance
Her heart is on the street
Tu corazon es suyo
Now you're falling at her feet
You try to get away but you can't

Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

Light up my life
So blind I can't see
Light up my life
No one can help me now

Run faster
Her laughter burns you up inside
He's spinning round and round
You can't get up, you try but you can't

Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

Light up my life
So blind I can't see
Light up my life
No one can help me now

Who's that girl
Now who's that girl
Now who's that girl
Now who's that girl

Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
