  1. I do use mega but sometimes I have had to delete stuff as its too full. IF i take a link down I always say it has ended if there is another way on the website to delete the entire thread I would do that. But If it expires all I can say is it has expired. I try and keep things up as long as i can😏. Besides anything I put up people can always send me a private message and I will help them out & give them a link up. Love to all xoxo

  2. Ok guys, since people keep posting links from forbidden sites I think we need a refresher... Good sites to use: googledrive, mega, zippyshare, mediafire, etc. sites that don't expire. Bad sites to use: sendspace, wetransfer, myairbridge, etc. sites that expire quickly. The system is supposed to catch the bad links but due to an oversight some have gone through. 1) Please don't use those sites. 2) If people use them, please moderators keep those threads off the download sections. 3) People who find a way to cheat and post forbidden links, will lose the ability to get reputation points. 4) Users, PLEASE use the report button to report dead links and links that shouldn't be posted. You will be rewarded. If these guidelines aren't considered then we'll need to make more strict rules and punishments. This is a community effort so thank you to everyone that helps.

  4. I certainly prefer the permanent sites, but I understand why people use the temporary sites. File hosting is costly, and so many sites like Google and others that don't expire only allow 10-15 GB per user unless you have a hosting plan. I myself have alot of personal files backed up on my Google drive so I don't use that here. Also, I've had trouble finding people willing to reupload something that has been deleted and they clearly have it. I don't want to sound entitled, but the great thing about this forum is we all get something out of it, it's not exclusive or members only. I try to give anytime I can here because others have given so much to us all — I feel like it's an unwritten rule that we should each try to contribute and give back, even if that means just re uploading something that was quickly deleted. People sharing and going out of their way to rip their own personal collections is what makes this place so great. And let me just say lastly that this place has made me so giddy and happy, and I'm so thankful to everyone here who shares with us as well as the moderators and admins who keep this place afloat

  5. This time on our lives is so turbulent, sad and scary. It's also a time when you see a person's true character and who treat others with help, love and kindness. Then there are those people who would rather cause trouble, bully, lie, be selfish and be mean hearted to others. ....especially on the internet when they think they can hide behind a multiple of ip numbers and different aliases. I just don't get this kind of behavior at all especially knowing there is a pandemic and any one of us could die at anytime? I can't imagine how God and the Angels must cry sometimes too?

    Madame X Tour DVD

    The Studio Tracks from CT you mentioned weren't added in to support the songs, that's actually how they sounded on the shows!.. those tracks are the actual concert playback recordings of the songs she lipped to most nights as the tour went on. I don't think Sorry was ever live once though... Although, Hung Up was actually sung live the nights they filmed the DVD for CT... but in post production they instead dubbed it over with the track she mimed to for most European and Asian shows. Make no mistake, Hung Up wasn't live over a backing track generally on later CT, it was for the most part entirely prerecorded besides the interaction and the DVD documents that well. Theres also incredible footage of one of the Fresno shows where she phones in La Isla Bonita also and the recording they had is absolutely incredible and sounds nothing like any performance of the song in her career. However, it's not the same as the DVD unlike the other songs. Check it out below, I'm sure a few fans will never have heard this forgotten gem. I'd have loved this to have made its way out in better audio, but it never has! x

  9. My theory is that people are jealous or annoyed by people capable of giving when "they" can't or can't be bothered to. Some are jealous of the tools celebrities have and some try to downplay others intentions because they do not want someone they think has everything showing them up or showing off. I really do think people who are the most critical of celebrities simply want what they have and their behavior would be exactly how they "think" a celebrity should act if they got that celebrity status.

  11. How could they put "Hey You" #2 on their Worst list? Though I know a lot of fans don't like this song. Anyway, here is something new from Glamour. Are you in agreement? Madonna’s 10 Best (and Worst) Songs of All Time The Queen of Pop has made a profound impact on music history—most of the time for the best. There’s no denying Madonna’s seismic impact on music. For nearly four decades now, she’s been a trendsetter, shape shifter, and innovator—a provocateur of pop and fashion and culture. But this is a double-edged sword. Because Madonna is so bold when it comes to her music, that means it’s never safe. Translation? She’s produced some brilliant songs…and some misfires. Often these are intermixed on the same album, which makes listening to her work a very polarizing experience. Die-hard fans get this. They know that one of her best tracks can be followed by something they feel is unlistenable. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. Madonna’s refusal to play by music’s rules is one of the things I love most about her. The fact that she continues to push boundaries—even up to her most recent album, 2019’s Madame X—is awe-inspiring. Because the thing is, when Madonna does make a hit, it’s not just a hit; it’s transcendent. These 10 songs, below, are the brightest examples of that. I consider them to be the best in her discography, and you’ve no doubt heard many of them. Most of these songs are more than just dance-floor-ready bops: They’re real pieces of music history that will stand the test of time. As for her worst songs, which I’ve also listed? Well, let’s hope we forget about those. Best 10. “Like a Virgin” (1984) Madonna could have easily been a one-album wonder after her debut, but she followed it up with something the world couldn’t ignore: a splashy, synth-y jam called “Like a Virgin,” complete with a music video in which she wears a wedding dress. Pair this with a headline-making VMAs performance—where she rolled around the floor, also in a wedding dress—and you have one of pop’s most potent moments. Ever. 9. “Music” (2000) Following 1998’s introspective, haunting Ray of Light album, Madonna went bright, colorful, and fun. “Music” is one of her most widely celebrated tracks, with a sledgehammer chorus and fresh electronic production that could easily work on a 2020 Charli XCX record. 8. “Holiday” (1983) There’s no way this song couldn’t make the cut. By far the standout on Madonna’s debut album, “Holiday” is effortlessly joyous, with a chantlike refrain that never once feels cringey. It’s pure light. 7. “Into the Groove” (1985) “Into the Grove” may have been our first glimpse into the music Madonna would come to be known for: grimy club delights with just enough froth to make Top-40 radio. The song sounds very much of its era, but make no mistake: It can still move a room of even the most unbothered millennials. I’ve seen it many times. 6. “Live to Tell” (1986) Madonna isn’t necessarily known as a balladeer, but her more downtempo moments shouldn’t be overlooked. Exhibit A: “Live to Tell,” a melodramatic shot of emotion that highlights her signature throaty vocals. 5. “Hung Up” (2005) Abba has let only one artist sample their music: Madonna—and thank God they did. No reinvention of M’s is more beloved by fans than 2005’s Confessions on a Dance Floor, a nonstop, wall-to-wall dance record that soundtracks like a night out. (On the original CD, there were no gaps between the songs, so it literally played like a DJ set.) It kicks off with the shiny, disco-fied “Hung Up,” which topped the charts worldwide. The track is Europop bliss: pulsating and primal, with a bridge that begs to be shouted from the top of your lungs. 4. “Express Yourself” (1989) Madonna has always been a feminist figure, but that’s presented perhaps most directly on “Express Yourself,” a stomping ode to recognizing your worth. “Don’t go for second best, baby,” she exclaims on the thumping chorus as shimmery bells and whistles swirl in the background. It’s yet another example of M’s impact on modern radio: There’s a current wave of retro-sounding pop happening in Top 40, and it all harkens back to “Express Yourself.” 3. “Ray of Light” (1998) When I used the word transcendent earlier, I had one song in mind: “Ray of Light,” the title track off Madonna’s most acclaimed record to date. Widely credited for helping drive electronica into mainstream pop, “Ray of Light” is an absolute rush of techno euphoria, a spinning, sparkly ode to the universe and all its wonderment. It’s a song that doesn’t just compel you to dance but makes you feel everything around you, like ecstasy without the drugs. And you’ll never want the high to end. 2. “Vogue” (1990) Two songs are largely viewed as Madonna's most essential. This is one of them, and it’s obvious why. It’s a near-perfect dance tune, complete with easy-to-learn choreography and a hook that literally commands you to “move to the music.”" If one phrase could sum up Madonna’s discography, that would be it. Of course, the conversations about the accompanying video’s appropriative nature are absolutely valid—and they’ve been argued at length many times—but there’s no denying the omnipresence of this song, in both clubs and culture. 1. “Like a Prayer” (1989) If “move to the music” sums up Madonna’s discography, then “Like a Prayer” sums up her entire career. It was, and always will be, her sonic, artistic, and cultural climax, which is no shade to the albums that followed it. (Please see Confessions and Ray of Light.) But there’s something undeniably special about “Like a Prayer.” Not only is the song a pop gem of the highest degree, the video—with its sexual and religious themes—set the stage for what Madonna would do in the next two decades. She would challenge how the world viewed Christianity and talked about sex—and the role women played in both those ideas. She would push buttons and piss people off but get them to have necessary conversations. That all started with “Like a Prayer.” It really was groundbreaking, and its effects can still be seen and heard today. Worst 10. “Illuminati” (2015) Muddled, clunky production and lyrics about one of the 2010s biggest internet conspiracies make “Illuminati” a dated mishmash. It’s a forgettable song on what’s otherwise a wonderfully bizarre Madonna album (2015’s Rebel Heart). 9. “Shoo-Bee-Doo” (1984) The hook on “Shoo-Bee-Doo” glides right past fun and heads straight to irritating. A word of advice from a Madonna stan: Skip this one and instead listen to “Angel,” one of the best songs on the Like a Virgin album, a second time. 8. “Incredible” (2008) This song clocks in at an unbearable 6 minutes and 20 seconds, but it’s more than just too long: There’s too much going on. The production on it is way too busy, which is saying a lot coming from me, an unapologetic supporter of Auto-Tune. 7. “Jimmy Jimmy” (1986) Save for “Live to Tell” and maybe “Papa Don’t Preach,” everything on Madonna’s True Blue album is airy, catchy, and exuberant. The only exception is “Jimmy Jimmy,"”which, unfortunately, took one step past exuberant and became…well, silly. 6. “Spanish Lesson” (2008) Madonna’s entire Hard Candy album was a bit of a misfire. It’s clear she was chasing the 2006 sound of Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, and Nelly Furtado, but a full two years later. The result is a collection of songs that sound stale and expired—and it’s most apparent on “Spanish Lesson,” a Latin-infused track in which Madonna equates sex and schoolwork. That’s something not even the most devout Madge followers asked for. (The “If you do your homework” bridge still haunts me.) 5. “Hanky Panky” (1990) Madonna’s Dick Tracy soundtrack album gave us many jewels, including “Vogue,” but “Hanky Panky” is not one of them. All you need to know about this song is that it rhymes the word panky with *spanky.I No further analysis needed. 4. “Give Me All Your Luvin,’” feat. Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. (2012) It’s boggling to think Madonna chose this as the lead single for her MDNA album when she had certifiable bangers, like “Girl Gone Wild,” waiting in the wings. The thing about “Give Me All Your Luvin’” is that it doesn’t sound like Madonna. The cheerleader “L-U-V” chant at the top of the track is beyond cheesy, and the chorus never quite sticks. Not even a rapid-fire Nicki Minaj verse can save it. 3. “I’m Going Bananas” (1990) Be glad this song, also from Madonna’s Dick Tracy soundtrack, is under two minutes. It’s a lukewarm attempt at salsa music that ends up coming off like slapstick parody, which is both problematic and hard on the ears. 2. “Hey You” (2007) Madonna’s heart was in the right place on this one—it’s a charity song released in tandem with the 2007 Live Earth environmental campaign—but the execution is…meh. Her acoustic songs, like the ones off 2003’s American Life, are always best when paired with something avant-garde, like a weird electro effect or bass line. “Hey You,” though, just sounds like Madonna attempting to recreate “Imagine.” And well, you can imagine how that goes. 1. “B-Day Song,” feat. M.I.A. (2012) I’m sorry, but “B-Day Song” is truly unsalvageable. The MDNA bonus track is a lethargic foray into ’60s twang that winds up sounding like grown-up “Patty Cake.” To think this and the superb “Love Spent” exist on the same album is astounding, but as I said, that’s just how Madonna rolls.

I've always been a fan of that song, and hearing Madonna sing it made me emotional. Also the live instruments on it really make it even better ! The atmosphere during the songs is awesome...

  16. Despite all the noise, what's important is that the money be used wisely and for good cause. It is all that really matters. After that, are you still certain that her music choices and collaborations actually matter in whether people like her or not? They only love to hate her so let the woman do what she wants.

  17. Bedtime Stories is a funny one. The first time I heard Secret I remember thinking how understated it was. No big fanfare release, just plonked on radio. It felt very warm. It’s a special song in her catalogue for sure. I actually think the underatted nature of it is part of its charm. Sort of like a grandmother / keeper of her career. Sweeping in as a soft comforting, reassuring arm after all the shouting and screaming of the previous era. A safe haven and a moment of gravitas and reflection. This theme continues throughout the album. Bedtime Stories is the sound of Madonnas career in cocoon. Even in the visuals. Death represented in the Take A Bow bull fight video. A cruel sport. A metaphor for fame. Her relationship with the media and being in bed with the media... her literally under the sheets with a television. No accidents. Even the title. Take a bow. The album opens with Survival. Where an insipid sounding Madonna plays sweet and references two of her softer earlier offerings in Angel and Live To Tell. She’s playing the room but biting her tongue. The images of rebirth in the Bedtime Stories video. A new Madonna being born of silicone and steel and in the lab scenes. She was under construction. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that she returns to the theme of her own mother on Inside Of Me. And then there’s Human Nature. The last Madonna mark 1.0 version song. Sure there were reinventions before this but in truth the original free Madonna was put to ground with Bedtime Stories...Just as the world lowered the coffin of Madonna 1.0 into the ground, Human Nature spits in their eyes just before they screw the lid on, she’s not sorry....but the twist is it’s Madonna herself who is laying her old self to rest. The two hits of “I’ll never explain again” and “absolutely No Regrets” forming her Epitaph, carved on her gravestone. We all know what happened after. Her public rehabilitation era. The role of her life and her daughter. Old Madonna was gone. New Madonna was thrilling in a different way but Bedtime Stories will forever be the axis of Madonnas career. A very special and important album that is still her record that has the most replay value. It’s just so playable late night or on a rainy day. I adore it.

  18. I remember Victoria Abril (one of the chicas Almodovar) saying in an interview on french tv that she hated Hollywood, everything was fake but one evening she found herself at a party with Madonna, bored as well and M went to her and talked lenghtly about spanish movies and abril said she was the only real person she met during her stay. Not only was she aware of spanish movies but she was very interested in it and in Victoria's career besides Almodovar.

  19. it's easy to make different accounts on free hosting sites like mega though. anyway people complain about dead links because then they can't take back the like, and a lot of people's reputations keep going up despite their files being no longer being available because there's no way for people to check the links otherwise. It's better to not even use the hide link button in that case but no one's gonna sacrifice their points lol. Some people have told me to remove their threads when their links are dead but that's very rare. We really can't do much about people who steal links either.

    can I say that this is extremely difficult? I love many albums and it all depends on the day, the mood, sometimes I just wanna listen to a bunch of them back to back etc etc some notes tho: -since I have the American version of LAV it bothers me that there's no ITG so I try to include it somehow I always forget I have to play the foreign edition -as much as I love ROL, it's a darn long album , and I do prefer the Japanese version which has Has to Be same with RebelH too long but this is more of a chore to listen to in its entirety , not so with ROL -Music is too short I am always left wanting more haha -I consider YCD and WTG full albums tho, only YCD is well to dance to and/or exercise and WTG is more M&friends to me -MDNA only album I skip songs after songs -justice for Evita lol but yeah I do love her massive, varied, iconic, FEELGOOD discography

  25. So difficult to choose just one. But I'd say Killers! All our eyes were focused on her during that moment and even though her vocals were supported by special effects, that didn't disctract from getting the meaning behind the song. And her replacement of the word Israel for Palestine was just a smart move. Israel should have never been mentioned in the record. #sorry

This is so difficult as all of the above...but 'Come Alive' gave me that "wow - heart in the throat" moment where at the end chorus I realised that our row had all linked hands in the air with each other. .with people we didn't even know !! The power of the song did that and I didn't want that moment to end

  33. Madonna was never one to scream at the top of her lungs like OPRAH about her charity work, She has given alot but never really exposes it. Certain things she has with Malawi and schools. But she doesn't have a camera with her everytime she goes to a hospital and she used to do a lot of that, Not so sure now.

  42. I'd be content with some editing (the backdrops to make the moment feel there similar to Confessions) and especially during some performances like IDSIF, Batuka, Crave etc. But I do hope in the softer moments of the show it isn't messed with too much. Her voice in Sodade and others shouldn't be altered way too much because she nailed those performance. I don't mind some stylistic editing in her releases but MDNA and RHT to an extent was almost seizure inducing.
