there's a very condescending "meet them halfway" attitude madonna seems to have to catering to the charts that more and more ends up at the exact wrong halfway point

Between the Super Bowl and this track I am p convinced she is just going through the motions w the bare minimum of effort. Who produced this? Maybe the Orbit tracks will redeem her?

Most of her efforts these days lie in film-making.

"Efforts."

Most of her efforts lie in trying to physically turn back the hands of time. Which is her prerogative, but she should't pretend her music is nearly as impressive as her physique.

Wouldn't want Madonna to get a big head.

there's a good argument to be made that this new single is the worst thing that madonna has ever committed to record

― lex pretend, Wednesday, February 29, 2012 5:08 AM (Yesterday)

I always think Jimmy Jimmy is the very worst thing she's ever recorded. Every year or so I listen to it and crrrringe.

oh it's cute, at worst negligible.

Plus, it was buried on the second side.

you have to admit that madonna keeps up with linguistic fashion for using "punk rock" as an adjective. i'm serious about this.

It's like opening the Necromonicon.

Q: is mymdna a social networking site for madonna fans?
A: well, there's already manhunt

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 6 March 2012 18:59 (six years ago) Permalink

The Madonna-is-old jokes make you look bad and are...old. There's enough bad music being pumped out by this woman to poke fun at instead.

Cousin Slappy, Tuesday, 6 March 2012 21:25 (six years ago) Permalink

Well, I will say there is a distinction to be made between someone who is old and someone who is old and trying to act young. For sure Madonna has been "old" for a while now, both literally and figuratively, but in general she has surmounted society's prejudices. Not this time, though.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 6 March 2012 21:29 (six years ago) Permalink

oh cmon, "opening the Necronomicon" is a good line

Pup Shalom Dog Costume (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 6 March 2012 21:53 (six years ago) Permalink

how is that a "Madonna is old" joke

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 6 March 2012 22:33 (six years ago) Permalink

The Necronomicon is old? Dead things are old?

BTW, I think Madonna's awesome mother/*ucker shirt was her smartest, cleverest statement on age.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 6 March 2012 22:36 (six years ago) Permalink

Her arms are her worst.

personally I'm waiting for someone to splice that anigif with the face-melting scene from Raiders

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 6 March 2012 23:03 (six years ago) Permalink

It was more a Madonna is evil rather than a Madonna is old joke, but hey.

Thankfully this track is *much* better, but I mean it'd be exceedingly difficult to make something worse than GGW

Music gets pretty zzzzz around 0:24 but the vocals are pretty great throughout

And now here's another snippet of a track ("Love Spent")

Oh God, she's gone back to her American Life phase where every other word in the song is either "I" or "me."

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 00:02 (six years ago) Permalink

She's also gone back to her American Life phase of sucking.

Album appears to be in *ahem* circulation now. GGW was not just a bad choice to open the album, but a bad choice altogether (this can't be restated often enough).

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 21 March 2012 04:44 (six years ago) Permalink

The album is shockingly pretty damn brilliant. The singles are somehow the worst songs on the album (which for someone with 30 years experience in the industry and for being well Madonna is ridiculous).

prolego, Wednesday, 21 March 2012 05:01 (six years ago) Permalink

The acoustic "Love Spent" on one of the deluxe editions is pretty goddamn great.

Reality Check Cashing Services (Elvis Telecom), Friday, 23 March 2012 23:48 (six years ago) Permalink

"B-Day Song" is like some ridiculous joke and I absolutely adore it

Joan Cusack clumsily running into a water fountain (Stevie D(eux)), Saturday, 24 March 2012 01:42 (six years ago) Permalink

so is this one of those cases where you have to get the deluxe editions to get the better tracks ?

mark e, Monday, 26 March 2012 13:50 (six years ago) Permalink

has she ever attempted a song like "B-Day Song"? It's like ABBA attempting a kid's song played on live instruments by Muppets.

"i'm addicted" is pretty awesome

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 26 March 2012 15:06 (six years ago) Permalink

and i'm not sure about "gang bang" but it's... genuinely disturbing

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 26 March 2012 15:10 (six years ago) Permalink

"gang bang" is the best thing here imo

"i don't give a" and "i'm addicted" are the other two that stood out and if i'm being honest the chorus of "give me all your luvin'" is stuck in my head a great deal of the time. it sounds less good when i actually play it, because madonna's voice is a total husk now, it drags down decent songs/fails to elevate catchy-but-basic bubblegum tunes/sinks each of the ballads.

lex pretend, Monday, 26 March 2012 15:45 (six years ago) Permalink

"i'm addicted" is great and sort of what i wanted this whole record to sound like, given the title mdna

"Gang Bang" might grow on me but right now it's just super annoying

haaaaaa I just got to the dubstep bridge

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:09 (six years ago) Permalink

well this whole song is just spectacularly falling apart

I just cannot take "DRIVE BITCH/NOW DIE BITCH" very seriously

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Monday, 26 March 2012 18:11 (six years ago) Permalink

"I'm Addicted" is actually a good song

After the two singles and "Gang Bang", I was not expecting this
