Best Night

Beautiful Killer

Gang Bang

I'm Addicted

Devil Wouldn't Recognize You

She's Not Me

How High

Isaac

Nobody Knows Me

Easy Ride

I'm fairly happy with Madonna singles choice up until the Music album. The main exceptions are Till Death Do Us Part and Secret Garden which I think are much better choices than Cherish and Bye Bye Baby respectively.

from Madonna:

Physical Attraction

from Like a Virgin:

Over and Over - instead of Gambler which should have been the b-side to Crazy for You instead.

(Angel should have gotten a video)

from True Blue/WTG/YCD:

Where's the Party / Spotlight - instead of The Look of Love

Santa Baby / Supernatural

from Like a Prayer:

Till Death Do Us Part - instead of Cherish

Spanish Eyes - instead of Dear Jessie

from Erotica:

Words or Thief of Hearts - instead of Bye Bye Baby

from Bedtime Story:

Forbidden Love

from Something to Remember:

I Want You - it's a shame that Motown interfered but they should have found a compromise with them. This song HAD to be a single!

Forbidden Love (if not as part of BS) - instead of One More Chance

Ray of Light (if MJ and Janet release 8 singles, why can't M??):

Nothing Really Matters (as third single)

Swim / Sky Fits Heaven (as fifth single)

Be Careful (w/ Ricky Martin) (after Beautiful Stranger)

Skin (as sixth single) to promote "Veronica Electronica"

Music:

Amazing

Impressive Instant / GHV2 Megamix - after the DWT to promote the DVD and GHV2

American Life:

Intervention - instead of Nothing Fails

Nobody Knows Me (Stuart Price Remix) - to promote the remix album and the tour

Confessions on a Dance Floor:

Forbidden Love

Isaac

Hard Candy (renamed to "Jawbreaker"):

Beat Goes On (as second single) - instead of Give It 2 Me

Devil Wouldn't Recognize You (as third single)

Miles Away - as final single

MDNA:

Masterpiece (as single from W./E.)

Girl Gone Wild (first single)

I'm Addicted (second single)

Gang Bang / Beautiful Killer (third single)

Falling Free (Remix) (fourth single)

Rebel Heart:

Living for Love (first single)

Devil Pray (second single)

Ghosttown (third single)

Bitch, I'm Madonna (fourth single)

Till Death Do Us Part - 4th single

Survival -3rd single

Sky Fits Heaven

Impressive Instant - 4th single

Nobody Knows me - 5th single

Forbidden Love - 5th single

Beat Goes On - 4th single,  Candy Shop 5th

Gang Bang 5th single, I'm Addicted (maybe First)

Devil Pray 4th Single, Rebel Heart 5th Single (although they are not my total favs I think UB with its reggae hybrid sound was one of the first of a whole new sound that came for pop and Best Night with Drake would have been a chance of a smash) So much potential on Rebel Heart

I'm satisfied with the singles released from Madonna, but if there was another, it would definitely have to be Physical Attraction

For Like a Virgin, Into the Groove should have had an actual single release in 1985 with a US re-release of the album instead of Angel. Like a Virgin, Crazy for You, Material Girl, Into the Groove and Dress You Up would have been a flawless single run.

I wouldn't change anything about the single choices for True Blue, but would add White Heat as a single if I had to.

For Like a Prayer, I'd have Promise to Try instead of Oh Father and Till Death Do Us Part instead of Keep It Together.

Madonna
If there was a sixth single - Physical Attraction.

Like a Virgin
No changes but it’s insane Into the Groove wasn’t released in the US.

True Blue
If there was a sixth single - White Heat.

Like a Prayer
No changes - I really don’t understand why Dear Jessie was a single but I love the song.

I’m Breathless
If there was a third single - He’s a Man.

Erotica
Rain should have been the third single, Bad Girl the fourth and Why’s It So Hard the fifth.

Bedtime Stories
No changes.

Something to Remember
Forbidden Love instead of One More Chance.

Ray of Light
Drowned World as the fifth single, not third.

Music
If there was a fourth single - Impressive Instant.

American Life
Hollywood as the first single, Nobody Knows Me as the second, Nothing Fails as the third and Intervention as the fourth.

Confessions on a Dance Floor
If there was a fifth single - Forbidden Love.

Hard Candy
If there was a fourth single - Beat Goes On.

MDNA
I’m Addicted as the first single, Girl Gone Wild as the second, Love Spent as the third.

Rebel Heart
If there was a fourth international single - Rebel Heart.

I had some issues with the choices for Rebel Heart's singles for a while. I'd have gone with Bitch I'm Madonna as the first single, nowadays it's the most streamed song from RH on any platform.

Then I'd have Ghosttown, now that eyes are on Madonna. Loved the TV performances, but would've promoted it on tour too.

And then I'd have Unapologetic Bitch. It has pretty high streams now on spotify way after its promotion period, it's fun and it could've been a modest summer hit.

And I'd close off the era with Devil Pray. It'd have a fun religious-themed video, the song is just very Madonna and with no promotion basically it got really high streams.
