  1. Well now that he's done producing Pet Shop Boys album trilogy--maybe he'll get back together with Madonna. I would die for a Madonna album produced by Stuart and the PSB. I want Madonna to go high camp disco party next with drag fashion, big groovy beats and dance moves, hints of freestyle, acid music and Chicago house a la Roisin Murphy. I think it would only be the most obvious choice and progression for Madame X. Add Sufjan Stevens to this production team and it would be total bliss. This gay boy can dream big!

  2. And was way better as a tour music director too - Kevin Antunes is so lazy with his productions ?

  3. Burning Up. Even as a kid, I always felt drawn more to the songs Madonna wrote vs those written by others. Lucky Star and Burning Up were always more fun to listen to than Holiday or Borderline. Same thing with Angel and Into the Groove. I always preferred them over Material Girl or Dress You Up.

  6. I loved the relationship they had together, he took no crap from her but in a fun way. He would remix oldies with respect and understood fans would love to hear them. Was it not Confessions where he tried so hard to get her to sing Rain and she wouldn't. One of the best things he did though was Erotica/You Thrill Me. I'd never heard that song before and just fell in love with it. I always love the interaction in DWT near the end of Music when she goes up to him as he is playing.

  10. I was reading what people chose and said to myself, "these are awful choices". Then I reminded myself what the singles from 2010-2020 were and was like "oh...." With that in mind if I must choose: Bitch I'm Madonna Girl Gone Wild Living for Love Ghosttown Give Me All Your Luvin'

  11. I don't really like the rap collaborators. Any time I think of a collaboration I always ask myself, is it necessary? Did it add anything to the song? Would the song be better / worse with just Madonna? In a case like Take a Bow, that particular collaboration worked and meshed well. With the modern era collaborators who are mostly rap / hip-hop, they don't feel necessary and seem forced. Every pop star uses the rent-a-rapper for a bridge in a song and it very rarely works.

  12. She’s an aging woman who won’t go quietly in the night. She won’t do a 7 minute greatest hits medley at the billboard awards. I love the fact she can still perform a new song (in full) at an awards show without having to do 3-4 older songs with it

  14. Timbaland, The Neptunes, Kanye, everyone on Hard Candy Swae Lee and Quavo on Madame X I don’t understand the hate when she works with hip-hop or rap artists. It’s like ok for her to work in any other genre but these?

  17. I agree that Chance The Rapper is great on Iconic, so good his performance is underrated, I actually became a fan of him via M probably would have skipped him. Everlast on the Waiting remix is a nice one too. The unreleased 2Pac version of IRBYL is so good, but I absolutely adore the Me’shell released version with her verse and bass playing (and the lesbian vibes of the released version, another underrated one). I love Quavo on Future. Swae Lee sounds beautiful all over Crave not just his verse. I actually love Kanye on The Beat Goes On, and I’m not a Kanye fan. I prefer GMAYL and BIM without Minaj, MIA, and LMFAO (wtf was she thinking, shoulda got Damon Albarn and the Gorillaz instead for that one IMO). I also was disappointed in the Missy Elliott (Crap Jeans and that Terrible remix) and Timbaland collaborations overall, and that somehow all three never made a song together. The classic, best M rap collaboration would, of course, have to be Jose & Luis. Introduce yourself.

  19. I love that he previewed tracks at clubs for Madonna and he treated her music with love and creativity. How he managed to make songs like Everybody and other classics sound modern versus whomever does her arrangements now. Would love to see The Thin White Duke remixes again for her singles.

    Something useful like a re-press of Broken would be welcome. Where people pluck the kind of figures from that they are trying to sell it for is beyond me.

  21. Let's sit down guys cause this is going to take a while and i'm about to vent a bit: I was just watching Oprah's 1998 interview and then the Live Earth performance from 2007 for the first time in years...and i was thinking about how she looked like a completely different person back then. Not just physically, but her attitude as well. I also realized...it was the last time we saw old school Madonna on stage with no major cosmetic surgery and before the drama hit her marriage, before Hard Candy, before S&S tour and before she was considered to be "following trends instead of creating them" as people say. She was just...so cool and confident on that stage! Amazing vocals, dancing 100% of the time, choreo on point. That's who i fell in love with. A lot is said about how Guy Oseary taking over changed things...and even though i agree, it's also okay to point out how this was the point Madonna as a person changed, right? Am i alone in this? What do you guys think happened at the end of that marriage that shaped Madonna to being the person she is right now? She literally went from being an english housewife that writes children books and has a british accent to excessive plastic surgery, dating boytoys, an overall less secure person than before to the point she's not even comfortable on letting her ego share a talk show with other people. I mean...her Graham Norton show appearances even from 2012 to 2019 are night and day honestly. Career wise she always progressed in terms of ideas and you could feel an artistic evolution from her first album until American Life. Re-Invention Tour and the Confessions era was her "damage control" phase and worked for her. Why? She knew she had to deliver. Thinking only about herself and her artistic growth wouldn't get her anywhere and this IS a business after all. She was still modern, but doing 70's inspired disco music and that attracted multiple generations but everyone thought she was the coolest. i remember it so well. It was also the first Madonna era i was a fan of hers. My parents loved her, i was almost 18 and loved her. My cousins weren't even 10 and loved her. How did we go from this to wearing grillz, dating boy toys, that Drake kiss, Bitch I'm Madonna phase, whatever she did at that VMA award where she told that Aretha Franklin story that went nowhere while dressed like...that. Going completely unprepared to Eurovision. How bad her vocal preparation was for that and even the BB Awards performances, and most of all...how unprofessional she became? She was going through hell during S&S in 2008 and somehow she always kept it professional. Yes she could start a show like half an hour after its initial time...but nothing major. How did we go from that stadium tour to a theater tour that couldn't be worse organized, from that lottery program, to delayed shows at the start of the tour, then each city, then cancellations 3 hours before showtime, to Madonna saying she's being censored by the UK's curfew? Like...she's been performing there since the 80's. She always did her shows because she showed up on time. How can she not realize all this? I always loved her, and i think i always will...but Madonna since Eurovision has been even harder to be...likable, even as a diehard fan. Never in a million years i ever expected Madonna to perform to an audience of over 200 million people completely unprepared like that. Is she really living in such a bubble that she doesn't realize everything bad she's doing to her career? Has she been told so many times how great she is, she actually started to believe she was? She was always great at this business because she knew her strengths and lows...which right now...she doesn't. Speaking of which...i won't even mention the fact she went on doing a stadium tour in 2012 with basically album tracks (and hits completely changed from their original versions) from an album that didn't sell 2 million copies. Just 4 years before, she did a stadium tour and of course...she did hits. You NEED to know your audience. Somehow...she doesn't anymore. And yes she was always bitchy, sometimes cocky, always had a dry and sarcastic sense of humor, that's still there to this day. But she was always a pro. A hard working pro. And we could always count on her to deliver and she was always the best at doing that. Now she can still be...after waiting for hours...in venues with no AC on, after we stressed for months over lottery programs, canceled shows, reschedules, etc. We also started to witness her victimizing herself more and more. Yes ageism exists...but you can't blame everything on sexism, ageism, etc. Look how she handled the SEX era. Watch those interviews from back then. She outsmarted everyone by being witty and confident. Now she cries on instagram. What happened? What do you guys think about all this? And please, if you're pretending "this is the same madonna as always"...let's not fool ourselves. She's a totally different person and it's okay to admit. I love her and will always. That's why this is a bit hard to witness. Even harder to see her vocals being so amazing right now. Where was all that before Eurovision? Madame X album recordings (it's clear she had no vocal training before doing this record), etc? Do you think all we need is a better team? What's next for her? What do you still expect from Madonna?

  32. Burning Up (Single Version). This is the first song I heard from Madonna in my local radio station. I recorded the song in a cassette, but I lost the cassette. I even didn't know the artist name so I couldn't buy the single in 1983. In 1987 I bought "The first Album" and I was so happy when I re-discovered "Burning Up" in the album. Burning Up was a Madonna's song!!! I'm sorry, but I love these stories before to be a real fan.

  37. They did try but failed miserably. They had Blockbuster kiosks like Redbox and other inventions that were too late too late and they screwed over their customers so many times. It sucks since I miss renting movies and browsing aisles instead of limited options on streaming apps and services.

  39. I was obsessed with Stuart's production in the early 2000s, no matter his moniker, so when I heard that he was coming to Australia for Good Vibrations I was so excited. I decided to just go to his DJ side-gig in Melbourne, and even designed a Thin White Duke tee to wear to the event. The DJ set itself was incredible. As the Scissor Sisters were playing the same festival, Baby Daddy and Ana Matronic were in the crowd, dancing along. At one point, Stuart dropped a track that included the Abba sample and I remember it sounding really souped-up and hot. During the song, I noticed that Stuart was taking a photo/filming us in the crowd, and even nudged my friend to take notice. "Haha, isn't that funny", I said to her. After the DJ set, Stuart left and we left too, and on the way out I noticed him and Ana walking off into the Melbourne CBD, hand-in-hand. Cut forward to October of that year while I was in NYC during an EU and US backpacking trip, and I am at The Roxy, watching Madonna dance to Stuart's remixes of Hung Up and other yet-to-be-heard tracks from COAD, while he is on the decks. For these reasons, COAD remains a very special and magical album era for me.

  46. Thats like looking at the Madonna from “Lucky Star”, and seeing the Madonna from “Erotica” and asking “What happened to her?”. Madonna’s just done something alot of us fail to do: evolve.
