I'm ecstatic enough about Stevie (or anyone) acknowledging the greatness of "Jimmy Jimmy" to overlook the "Live To Tell" diss.

"Live To Tell" is the greatest

My favorite ILM poll: the level of commitment, the writing.

I like to think Patrick Leonard said "OK, we're done" and Madonna saying, "No, wait -- I have an idea. 'If I ran away...'" and Leonard losing his shit.

Fuck me, my favorite thing she's ever done, her cover of Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" (off the Something to Remember comp) wasn't even nominated?!?!?!

There are no nominations in artist polls.

It sucks, but "American Life" still exists.

Oh yeah, Madonna put out music after 2001... I keep forgetting! Now I shall forget again.

Found the second greatest-hits CD at a garage sale last week, been playing it in the car. A kind of sameness creeps into the first few tracks because of the remixing. "Ray of Light" and "Beautiful Stranger" (which took some abuse in this poll) sound as amazing as ever; I think her career peaks were very early ("Holiday," "Borderline," "Into the Groove") and then later with those two songs--lot of greatness between, with some silliness, but they're the best. The one song that jumped out at me that I didn't vote for above was "Drowned World"/"Substitute for Love." I should have.

If she ever writes her memoirs--particularly of the early '80s--I'd read them.

"Beautiful Stranger" (which took some abuse in this poll)

Not enough, iirc.

At least six terrific albums, many good songs. American Life deserves reappraisal.
