Lucky Star (5/89)



  1. I really did enjoy the Girlie Show, but that's maybe because I had already developed an interest in cabaret bars, burlesque performances and circus life - interests that only grew stronger as I got older and began my own training. The Girlie Show coincided well with those early interests that I still rely on today. I don't think there's anything I would change in it, what would be the point? Why waste the time on things you can't change or have any control over?
  2. I had read years ago that Bad Girl was originally planned as a video single as well. Madonna wanted it to be a long music video that was inspired by a French movie I think. I think quite a few of the original plans didn't come to fruition with this album. Press and conservatives/repressed fuckwits just couldn't help themselves. Every week it was "has she gone too far?" It was fucking tiresome. I was still in school at the time and the shitheads in my class began calling me disgusting for liking her. It was just one after next during that time... almost feels like it was a mistake to have a hit with something as tame as This Used to be My Playground only to jump to the Erotica video a few months later. They just weren't ready. On radio they talked her "encyclopaedia of sex" coming out and her "parade of perversion". It was really not a good time.
  3. Got rid of my collection about a decade ago to make room for the puppy who was about to come live with us, but held on to the cd albums. Like A Prayer Bedtime Stories Ray of Light Erotica Music
  4. Absolutely agree, an actual band playing those songs would have made a huge difference. The production, as it stands, cheapens the entire aesthetic of the album. As a musician, it pains me to hear those tracks sometimes. The little bits featured in Bloodhounds of Broadway came out much better, even though what's featured in the film had to be rerecorded during post production, it's a more natural sound that fits the era with I Surrender Dear compared to the Breathless tracks. I'm Breathless could've been a real masterpiece if it wasn't marred by this production and included a couple more tracks without tacking on Vogue which really should have been an exclusive for The Immaculate Collection with JML and RM.

  6. She said "screw those fans, they ain't getting shit this year" 😁😂
  7. Here's a good tip - stop expecting and imagining 😁 it's just not worth the heartbreak and disappointment I see here every day, page after page. Live your life, Madonna is living hers. I'm glad she's still with us, she's still standing and I appreciate that more than reissues or demos or remixes. If she chooses to records more new stuff, cool I'll check it out, if not she's already done so much and accomplished more than we could have wished for.
  8. And that Madonna was unhappy with the work on her debut album and got Jellybean to produce different mixes for the album than what Reggie Lucas had done. So remixing was important to her right from the start, although at first she didn't always like other people changing her songs, she came to embrace it, even bootleg mixes (Stardust for DWT and Dens54 for RHT).
  9. Let's also not forget that You Can Dance was a remix album which was, at one point, the best selling remix album ever until Michael Jackson broke that record. Really wished it had included something new of La Isla Bonita though since the artwork played so much with the Spanish theme and there was nothing of that on the record.
  10. It's a record scratch sound effect. It really adds something to the mix doesn't it? Love it as well. A slightly different record scratch effect is used on Now I'm Following You Part II.
  11. At the end of the day, if you don't like what the assigned producer delivered from the sessions, your problem essentially lies with Madonna's choice of whom she selected as a conduit for her artist expression. An artist has a goal in mind when selecting a producer and Madonna is no different. She succeeded in crafting the record she envisioned with those she handpicked for the job.
  12. So fucking gorgeous 😍 That gift I can imagine means a lot to her. Very thoughtful.
