    1. Like a prayer (What can be said? This is iconic. Very little things have the same importance as this in Modern Pop Culture). 2. Borderline (The one that aged the best from Mary Lambert Videos). 3. La Isla Bonita (The scenes with the candles are that good). 4. Material Girl (People are still referencing 'Gentleman Prefer Blondes' to this very day, being the first to do that is something that not anyone can have). 5. Like a Virgin (Love the way the video is edited, I think the pace is perfect in rhythm with the song and it grabs your attention even though is not really telling a story).

    Amem to that! I don't want to listen to karaoke versions with loud vocals from the 80's underneath it ever again! (I looking at you, Rebel Heart Tour).

    I love 'Baby Love' as much as I love 'Each Time You Break My Heart and 'Tell Me', and though I think they are far more enjoyable than 'Jimmy Jimmy' or 'Love Makes the World Go Round' they all sound so... faceless? anyone could sing those songs. They do have a Madonnaish sound but if you place them side by side with 'Open Your Heart', 'Papa Don't Preach' and 'La Isla Bonita' they become somewhat bland, at least 'Jimmy Jimmy' was trying the whole cute 1950's thing along with the tittle track.

    I do feel she's become more pretentious but she have always been that, I think the whole thing is rooted in insecurity and lack of facing facts (she doesn't allow people into her life outside her staff they are probably ass kissers). Madonna always worked best under pressure, I think is safe to guess that she had more people saying no and telling her the real picture when she was under Warner and she always found balance between being "too out there" with more straight foward projects (LAP/Blond then going with a Collection of hits, Sex/Erotica then Bedtime/Something to Remember, AL then Confessions...). Since the contract with Live Nation she disappeared for 4 years to the public eye without anything other than Gyms, perfumes and so on, MDNA had none promotion outiside the Superbowl, then more 3 years away... They seen to lead her career thinking her name alone is enough but lack input when it comes to keep her catalogue alive, even on her youtube channel they took a long time to upload all of her videos and the channel still a mess to this day. If you compare any song from the 80's or 90's with similar success her views are vey low because of that. The same goes for other streaming plataforms. I don't think we need another compilation with promotion or anything like that, but I do think they should put out special editions of her catalog out with interesting stuff and create a buzz with that, I also think a lightweight performance in a big plataform or, better yet, a concert (Like Kylie did on Glastonbury for example) would do wonders... Do I think she'll do any of this? No, but whatever, at this point at least the music still interesting to me.
  5. The point of those collaborations she had since 2003 was to sell, so I don't see the point of doing more since the last ones did nothing on the charts. Having said that I would like a more organic, not so focus on trying to be hip, kind of collaborations, especially with women within her genre of music, tired of those urban crap...

    Nothing is as bad as the mixed bag that was Rebel Heart Tour for me, but Madame X is anything close to spetacular either. ~runs~

    Radio is not so important as is streaming right now and still, what I meant with songs like 'Hung Up' and 'Music' is not that those are fun pop songs, unfortunately a good current sounding song is not enough for her anymore after having more than two hands filled with fenomenal songs, I meant how those songs since the beginning were well recieved by the fans, the media and the general public and were right there with her previous big hits in terms of quality. I know there's no way to consciously craft another one of thoses, but I think is very clear now that a current sounding song with someone young and "hot-right-now" is not the way to go. It is hard and probably won't ever happen again, but she still the only one at her age and time of career that has a chance at doing it again because, like I said, for the good or bad, people still paying attention when she puts something out.

    If a surefire solid pop song like 'Music' or 'Hung Up' comes up again together with her willing to do that kind of straightforward aproach to the whole thing, I would say yes. She still have people paying attention to her new releases and the age thing was around (with different proportions, I know) on both cases and hey, Cher made 'Believe' happen, so you never know. The GP are not interested in revolutions of love, in alter egos. I think they see those types of things as ego driven and we already know that her image on the media is not that very cool, so...

    There's a difference between compromise and/or changing your mind for business purposes than actually change a tour concept or accept back to back dates just because someone told her to. I still find ludacris the idea that she is being forced to do stuff that she doesn't want to or can't do.

    Assumptions... What we know as fact is what she says and it's pretty clear that she still calls the shots by what she says in interviews and on social media.

    I feel very sorry for her injury, hope she does all that it takes to heel it with no permanent damage, having sad that I still think that everything that went wrong with this tour is inexcusable and a huge lack of professionalism and we as fans have to start putting the blame on somebody else. Madonna is in this business for almost 40 years, SHE DOESN'T TAKE A STEP THAT SHE DOES NOT WANT TO. Stop blaming Guy O, stop blaming "someone" for changing her mind and putting an arena show into the theather, stop blaming staff for the ladder... Madonna is not only a human when it comes to the strength (or lack of) of her body, she's also a human who loses herself in her ego, who makes questionable choices and we should not take that away from her and rub on somebody else

    Right?! She doesn't even change the 10 minutes long monologues... All that "I want to do something different blablabla" was pure lip service as this show is just as tight, relying on screems and with the same rehearsal "jokes" with people who have money to give her, only this time is in a small place

    Is this the woman who said she wanted to feel connected to the fans? This narrative seems to me more and more untrue seeing this behavior and knowing what we know about the show...

    * Except 'Beautiful Stranger' her collaboration with William Orbit only works when his producing others composers' work. * Jellybean, Stephen Bray and Shep Pettibone are just as important collaborators in her portfolio as is Patrick Leonard. * Other than 'Like a Virgin' and 'Material Girl' her 85 boom to superstardom was only achieved because of outiside material as 'Into the Groove' and 'Crazy for You'. * A) She should have hired Jellybean and Stephen Bray to work on 'Like a Virgin'. B) Her work with them around that time (ITG, CFY, Gambler and Sidewalk Talk) aged better than what's on the album. * I Rise is the worst choice ever for ending a show. * Kevin Antunes is the worst thing that happened to her tours.
