    If it were there, I'd vote for Lucky Star, as she was hesitant to release it as a single because she was so eager to release Like A Virgin.
  2. Did anyone who ever put money towards that project ever get reimbursed? That's some BS if they didn't.

    I wish I knew which Billy Steinberg & Tom Kelly song she rejected after she had recorded LAV. Who knows?

    The album covers, not the music. Hard Candy to me looks ridiculous. In fact, a lot of the pictures with the wrestling garb on, like the head piece, etc. just make me cringe so much. It looks like over trying to me, idk. And I didn't know for a long time that was a stool she was sitting on. I thought it was extra wrestling tape or something falling behind her, which made me look like she was squatting like she was going to the bathroom with a big long black thing falling out of her ass, as she seductively tries to bite tape off her hand because suddenly she has decided to needs to be a part of G.L.O.W. Besides the fact, those panties look like a diaper does not benefit this concept of photography in any way, shape or form unless it's a commercial for older wrestling ladies who need a boost in confidence and support for having urinary incontinence. The pictures in white (Snow Queen) are significantly better (and I don't mean the ones where she's in the corner where she looks like a 50 year old stripper in a padded room in a psych ward off her meds). Runner up below: The wires look ridiculous too. It makes her look like a "simple" person who got confused and ended up getting wires wrapped around her face and has no idea how to unravel them. So bad, to the point her mouth is all distorted with a "duh" look on her face. Her lips so badly pushed out, where she looks part-near like she has a cleft palette (which is fine if she did, but she does not). It's unfortunate because her skin, eyes and hair look amazing.

    I agree. Authenticity will always prevail.

    I'd buy that especially for the song "Whoever's In Malawi".

    That's what I'm thinking too! Outstanding work.

    LDLHA. Like An Angel Passing Through My Room OR Hung Up?
  9. I don't think COADF is not underrated at all. I absolutely love that album (except Push). In terms of overrated, the only one I'd agree to is Madame X. A couple songs are alright, but 90% of it is virtually unlistenable to me. I can't understand anything but English and even if I understood other languages, the robotic voice irritates me. I appreciate the variety of "world sounds" and I appreciate the originality of the album, but sonically I don't enjoy it at all, can't understand what's she's singing in a lot of it and due to the vocoder, it doesn't even sound like her to me. The majority of the songs actually annoy me and grate on my nerves listening to it, and that rarely ever occurs to me and never up until that point with a Madonna album. I'll never forget listening to it with friends, us all shaking our head in disbelief, laughing and asking "really"? I couldn't wait for the album to be over. I literally hated it. Such a change from Rebel Heart where I absolutely adored half the album like crazy (thought the other half was just ok). Anyways, different strokes for different folks. 😄🤷🏻‍♂️

    I'd vote for Hany Panky if it were there, lol. That's my choice. 🍑👋
  11. Omg, yes! That would've been incredible. I guess we can only imagine...
  12. I 100% agree wholeheartedly. It's always irked me that ITG wasn't an official single, because it deserves that #1 Hot 100 spot, which would have been guaranteed. Especially like I said, it's the Madonna song I have heard radio play throughout the years more than any other song from her. And Angel, I agree. I absolutely love that song so much. It's one of my top Madonna songs ever. It deserved so much more attention than it ever received.
  13. The ultimate B side played more than the original (at least in North America) by FAR is Into The Groove. Nothing else even compares. Throughout my whole life, I have probably heard ITG more than any other M song ever on radio. It definitely overshadowed Angel (which is a song I love btw). I would also say the general population would know ITG much more than Angel. Besides the fact, ITG is one of her biggest hits ever and it was a legit B side, never charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Oh, and further more, even though I was just a kid when it was initially released, I knew 5 other friends/family with the 12" single of Angel/Into the Groove. I have never known that many people still to this day with the same single in any format from Madonna. And they all pretty much got it just to hear ITG.

    I LOVE half the album, and am meh with the other half. And there's a few I like, but I want to choose my favorites. Plus, the hell with bonus tracks. I think albums should just be albums with a standard tracklist, no more than 13 with the best songs (the way it used to be decades ago). I also, naturally, have my preferences of mixes (but I'll only mention those if they're significantly different than album versions). Everyone's gonna HATE my choices, but this is how I organized it for myself years ago. Please don't hate me, lol. MADONNA - REBEL HEART 01.Addicted 02.Illuminati 03.Devil Pray 04.Ghosttown 05.Hold Tight (Demo with MNEK mixed in with the album version as I love both) 06.Borrowed Time (Demo) 07.Living For Love 08.Wash All Over Me (Full Dance Demo) 10.Rebel Heart (Dance Demo) 11.Never Let You Go 12.Inside Out 12.Beautiful Scars (Demo) 13.Joan Of Arc (Acoustic) * And I would put the "Joan of Arc" picture as the front cover, with the bloody heart in the hand picture on the back cover. I'd promote the album with the medieval aesthetic throughout the album. That picture with the face tied up I would burn it, so nobody could ever see it.
