Hey, just a request y'all...

If, when voting, you could include the points alongside the tracks on your ballot, that would be super helpful (since I'm tabulating by hand one at a time). ex:

First place song - 40
Second place song - 36
...
Nineteenth place song - 13
Twentieth place song - 12

It helps me make sure I don't leave anything out or give a particular song too many or too few points.

I've had a ton of different favorite Madonna songs over the years, but I think at some point over the past few "Open Your Heart" has cemented itself in my mind as the most Madonnest song Madonna ever Madonna'ed. If it's not somewhere on your ballot, I may discard it. ;)

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 19 February 2013 06:54 (four years ago) Permalink

I got the urge last week to put on some Jellybean Benitez - couldn't be entirely sure Sidewalk Talk and (especially) Who Found Who weren't actually *by* Madonna. I think they may even have been written by her.

Anyway wfw is my vote for the most Madonna thing I've ever heard - not just the soundalike vocal or JB production, something in the melody and phrasing is pure, distilled Madonna.

Ismael Klata, Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:19 (four years ago) Permalink

i was in a pizza parlor the other day and they were playing "open your heart", not all that loud, and i'd never thought about it much before but it literally sounded like the most beautiful thing ever made. very high. (on my ballot i mean. although since you ask.)

another ridiculously gorgeous one for me is "don't tell me", with all that space and the clipped postmodern acoustic guitar loop.

if you gave me half the chance you'd see, my desire BURNING INSIDE of me.

the early group of madonna songs where by it feels that madonna is with absolute self-assurance just commanding things into existence by sheer force of ambition & willpower are one of the best things ever (see also: burning up, gambler). and her voice pulls it off in spades.

"Secret Garden"!!!

After an album of heartbreak, pain, disease and death Madge tries to reconstruct her existence over early drum and bass yearning for the one thing she feels she can unconditionally love and be loved back in return - a child.

I can't think of a better line to sum up Madonna in an existential crisis in 1992 than her sighing "I just wish I knew the color of my own hair".

"Words" is my favorite of the faster Erotica numbers.

the little prince of inane false binary hype (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 19 February 2013 15:42 (four years ago) Permalink

from the Bruce thread:

Madonna has so many singles that some of them qualify as deep cuts ("Angel," "Causing a Commotion," "Hanky Panky," "Nothing Lasts Forever").

As long as "Angel," "Sky Fits Heaven," and "Til Death Do Us Part" get mentioned, I'm ok.

Madonna released at least one single every year between 1982 and 2003; in that time period, only one of them did not make the top ten of a chart somewhere (and, as far as I can tell, it's the only single of her career that didn't hit the top 10 somewhere)

That means 75 out of 76 singles hit the top ten on the pop and/or dance charts

Predict a massive span of singles, album cuts and other stuff spread out over her entire career. So much stuff from virtually every album/era that I outright love, up to and including "Confessions..." I'd say. After that she started trying to hard and therefore failing harder. I'm sure "Hard Candy" and "MDNA" have their defenders, though.

Always wondered why that song felt like a bonus track, but now it makes sense. It's the baby song on an album in which she assumes the role of a gay man.

The Big Orange SPIN Book dismissed Bedtime Stories as Madonna jumping on board the R&B train but working with Dallas Austin, Babyface, and Dave Hall showed how shrewdly she figured out that R&B would dominate the decade. She even looks ahead to the cavernous electronic chill of her next studio album.

True Blue probably counts as a key album for me as a listener. Just circumstances--that was the one that was out when I started working at a record store in 1986. Rediscovered Top 40 pop music after a long time away from it. "Open Your Heart" in particular was key (as was Janet's "When I Think of You").

I didn't particularly love Erotica at the time (and still don't) and, for some reason, my mind has never identified Bedtime Stories as a proper Madonna album since it seemed to come so quickly after Erotica (though now I see it was a full two-year gap). She was just so omnipresent during those years that it all seems like a blur. In hindsight, I appreciate her attempts at spreading her wings into unfamiliar styles, but neither of those records means a lot to me.

On December 3, 1990, ABC's Nightline played the video in its entirety, then interviewed Madonna live about the video's sexual content and censorship. When asked whether she stood to make more money selling the video than airing it on MTV, she appeared impatient and answered, "Yeah, so? Lucky me."[18]

"ray of light" seemed like a twofer for some rock critics, got to show that see they do like pop music and also see they're not afraid of techno (when there's a SONG you can HUM for a CHANGE amirite). i'm fine w/ it (i like several rol tracks, including all the other singles, a good bit more), suspect it won't place that high? could be some real narcissistic 'everyone shares my take' thought process there but yknow what? four tunnel of love tracks in the top twenty. i'm gonna ride this feeling and see where it takes me.

tbh though that's just 'the older i get, the more i find myself sympathizing w/ hippies', if i think of 'ray of light' as madonna offering a similar vibe for her now middle aged wannabes i can feel that, 'and i feel like i just got home' makes way more sense, is way more perfectly specifically joyous in the soccer mom context than in the celestial child of the universe in the brotherhood of man context.

i'm almost certain sure she's a billionaire - that forbes estimate fails to account for her private investments, assets, royalties and her art collection that's worth hundreds of millions alone.

not that they're "hating" per se but i think there's been bad blood in the past with madonna refusing to release her private financial details to them (you can imagine what she's like) + other sources going out and calling her a billionaire first when forbes like to consider themselves the sole authority on this sort of thing mustn't have sat well with them.

Nah, Bono's earned it. According to Flanagan's book U2 tours were barely profitable until the mid-90s - they sunk so much money into the visuals, or whatever the hell they did pre-Achtung Baby, that they had to sell every ticket to pretty much break even.

On a related note, was it Madonna who raised the bar on ticket prices? I dimly recall top-act prices virtually trebling overnight at some point, and have a feeling she was the first to realise the Market could take it.

Ismael Klata, Friday, 29 March 2013 15:55 (four years ago) Permalink

It was the fucking Eagles who were first with $100 tickets.

Actually looked into seeing Waters last year, but tickets were $400. Interestingly, according to Mojo, Pink Floyd barely broke even on their 1994 tours because they didn't want to charge more than $40/ticket, but they had insane expenses.
