She's a true professional

da croupier, Monday, 6 February 2012 13:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

And while I'm tempted to ask why she bothers, that Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld bother is an even bigger question

that was fun! just watched it. like a prayer 4ever.

AM I nuts or did she almost fall back a bit when she was on the bleacher things at one point. I swear I saw it but nobody else I was watching with seemed to.

yeah i saw it too

pretty pissed that she didn't do "hung up"

Huh, that was OK. Superbowl halftime is like the closest we can come as a country to true OTT Euro-style spectacle. I'm sure the crowd and audience alike would have been better entertained by one of those full-on drum, cheer and dance corp LMFAO renditions, though.

Hung Up would have been a better choice than Music.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

that wasn't bad. not life-changing but enjoyable - she looked relaxed, which she hasn't for a while, and that was a strong selection from her back catalogue.

i like "music" better than "hung up", i think. or about the same. both classics!

I've always thought Music was lame. Don't Tell Me ftw.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

"music" was her last US megahit. "hung up" wasn't really super bowl setslist-level big.

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Hung Up" also went platinum and "4 Minutes" went double-platinum according to Wikipedia

yeah but "music" is the closest thing to "vogue"-level universal she's made in the last x years

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

and she wasn't gonna do TWO post-'90s hits in addition to the new single, so "music" it is

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have never liked "Music".

i don't like "Music" either, i'm just saying it's ridic to even expect "Hung Up"

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 16:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think you're underselling how successful "Hung Up" was:

"Hung Up" peaked at number one in charts of 41 countries and earning a 2007 place in the Guinness Book of World Records, as the song topping the charts in most countries.[27] It also remains one of the best-selling singles of all time, with sales of over nine million copies worldwide.[28] In the United States, "Hung Up" debuted at twenty on the Billboard Hot 100 on the issue dated November 5, 2005. It became her highest opening position since "Ray of Light" entered the chart at five in 1998. The same week the song entered the Hot Digital Songs chart at number six and became the highest debuting single of the week on the Pop 100 Airplay, where it debuted at thirty-eight.[29] On the issue dated December 7, 2005, the song entered the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 at seven, which became its peak, jumping from position fourteen of the previous week. The song became the chart's greatest digital gainer for that week and claimed the top position on the Hot Digital Songs chart.[30] It also tied Madonna with Elvis Presley for thirty-six top ten hits,[31] which was subsequently broken by Madonna's 2008 song "4 Minutes", which peaked at three on the Hot 100. "Hung Up" debuted at numbers twenty-five and ten on the Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Airplay charts respectively ultimately reaching the top of both charts.[32][33][34] It became the most successful dance song of the 2000s in the United States, by topping the Dance/Club Play Songs Decade-end chart.[35] The song also reached a peak of seven on the Pop 100 chart.[32] On August 18, 2008, the single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling at least a million copies in paid digital downloads.[36] As of April 2010, the song has sold 1.2 million digital units in the United States.[37]

although I would have really lolled if she's done "4 Minutes":

In the United States, "4 Minutes" debuted at number sixty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the issue dated April 5, 2008, based solely on airplay.[21] Within a week, the song had jumped sixty-five places, reaching number three on the chart. This leap was spurred by first-week digital sales of 217,000, enabling the song to enter Billboard's Digital chart at number two, behind Mariah Carey's single "Touch My Body". The song became Madonna's first top-ten single since "Hung Up" (2005), and was her thirty-seventh Hot 100 top-ten hit, breaking the record previously held by Elvis Presley.[22] "4 Minutes" was also her highest-charting single on the Hot 100 since "Music" reached the top of the chart in 2000. For Timberlake, "4 Minutes" became his ninth top-ten hit.[23] On the Pop 100 chart, the song reached a peak of two.[24] "4 Minutes" was a success on Billboard's dance charts, topping both the Hot Dance Club Play and the Hot Dance Airplay charts.[25][26] Four months after its release, "4 Minutes" was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of two million paid digital downloads. It is her second single to achieve multi-platinum certification, after "Vogue" (1990), and it is one of her best-selling songs in the United States.[27] As of September 2010, it had sold 2.8 million digital downloads in the United States.[28] "4 Minutes" was the tenth most downloaded song in the United States in 2008, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[29] In Canada, Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) confirmed that "4 Minutes" debuted at the top of the Canadian Contemporary Hit Radio chart. This marked the first time any song entered at the top of the CHR chart in BDS history.[30] The song debuted at number twenty-seven on the Canadian Hot 100 on March 27, 2008,[31] and topped the chart the next week.[32] The song spent nine non-consecutive weeks at the top of the chart.[33]

i know it was successful, i'm saying "Music" was more successful, especially in the U.S.

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 16:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

well thank god she didn't play "4 minutes"

J0rdan S., Monday, 6 February 2012 16:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

if a superstar with a deep catalog is playing a high profile event for like 15 minutes, you can bet 'the biggest song from two or three albums ago' is not on the agenda

People complaining about the medley aspect obviously haven't watched a Super Bowl halftime show in the past decade.

I thought she looked pretty good and was having fun.

this was pretty fun and ridiculous and p much exactly what you'd expect from a super bowl halftime show

^^^ otm

But my favorite Madonna moment of the weekend was the Guy Fieri sketch on SNL when his Madonna tribue dish was a "weird bucket of mussels".

I thought it was sloppy and ridic and that she wasn't taking it v seriously, also way lol @ slipping on bleachers. That's not to say I didn't love it

After finally watching the superbowl thing, felt like the new song had the most energy by far, which is nice. The Give Me All Your Luvin' video is kind of disjointed, which put me off at first, but it's a good song.

Weird how between Parkour and Slacklining and Gymnastics and so on, Madonna is like a one-woman physical fitness ad for people who'll probably never progress past M's Tracy Anderson phase.

(also I think "music makes the bourgeois have a revel" was hella more appropriate both for madge in general and the superbowl in particular)

tracer: i am assuming she is saying Music is what leads to the creation of both the bourgeois class and of rebels against it

i'd forgotten that music is half a really amazing album (and half totally inessential but whatever). "impressive instant", "paradise (not for me)", "runaway lover">>>>>>>

"Hung Up" was massive everywhere in the world except the US, where it peaked in the top ten but tumbled quickly

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 6 February 2012 20:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

That's because the rest of the world loves ABBA a million times more than the US ever did. Though if the song sampled "Dancing Queen" it'd be a different story.
