    I loved the motif, but in retrospect, it may not seem particularly appealing to the average casual buyer.
  2. I didn't say that the musical is new, I said that the upcoming live-action movie adaptation of the musical is new. Obviously Madonna is working on something new, but at the moment all we can do is speculate. A fictional biopic based upon her first successes seems obvious. A pure jukebox musical like Mamma Mia with a completely fictional plot is probably unlikely.

    Apparently everyone has to act surprised again.
  4. Such future film projects would probably not be so comparable to a visit to the Broadway performance. Hamilton is probably more of an example of how not to do it anymore: Simply filming the stage production is not eligible for movie awards, so future musical projects of this kind (such as Once on This Island) are more likely to be filmed as feature films on more attractive live locations.

  5. There are considerations that more broadcast recordings of shows (like Hamilton) are sold to streaming providers and cable channels. This would allow these productions to reach a much larger audience worldwide.
  6. "Madonna leaves Interscope Records to return to Warner in 8-figure deal" https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8606291/Madonna-leaves-Interscope-Records-return-Warner-8-figure-deal.html She's also back on the Warner banner on Twitter. https://twitter.com/warnermusic
  7. It will be difficult to make a commercially successful film about Madonna, which is not allowed to use most of her hits. Most of the songs were co-written by her and for the rest she, Warner, Rogers, McLean, Webber and befriended producers will make sure that they are not available for such a project. The film Madonna and the Breakfast Club stands for this: it wasn't so bad, but without her hits there won't be a bigger audience for it. You can burn the money right away before you want to produce a film about Madonna without her consent. A creative filmmaker (Marc Cherry/ Feud?) can of course refer to episodes in her life for which music would not be so important. But this would hardly be the big Madonna movie the audience has been waiting for.
  8. A fictionalized biopic would have the flexibility that the plot might focus on the 80s, but like Rocketman, it could also include some later hits like Vogue, Ray of Light, Music or Hung Up.
  9. She uses the icons of a clapperboard and a film camera. As she will hardly spread out her whole private life for the whole world, a fictionalized biopic is more likely. Something like Rocketman seems obvious.

    You're right, of course. I had my last Dusty playlist in front of me. Some titles just fit too well with Madonna's current situation.

    What's the Dusty Springfield hint? What Have I Done to Deserve This? You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me? Don’t Forget About Me? Am I the Same Girl? Silly, Silly, Fool? I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself? Nothing Has Been Proved? 🤔
  12. Today I discovered the fabulous Like a Prayer remix video by @dubtronic and am in love with it!
  13. I loved Missy's part on Into the Hollywood Groove.

    I often talked to her and we had exciting adventures. And then, sadly, I woke up again. 😕
