The Story Behind Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” Bass Line

Spector has released a new “Spector on Record” video with a cool animated bass line. This time they explain the story of Madonna’s controversial “Like A Prayer,” which is anchored by session ace Guy Pratt.

According to the bassist, Madonna pushed him to create more and more complex lines, even to the point that he didn’t recognize his own playing when hearing the final version. Pratt tells the story in his own hilarious way, plus we get the low down on the song’s overarching story.

If you haven’t checked out their last video for “Let’s Dance,” be sure to give that a watch, too.
