Olympic memories: Madonna‘s lush ballad “This Used to Be My Playground,” from the Olympics-themed 1992 album Barcelona Gold, finished first on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is also beloved via another sports-related tie-in: as the theme to the hit baseball film A League of Their Own, starring, among others, Madonna, Tom Hanks and Rosie O’Donnell.
