Live To Tell: The Story of Madonna’s Life

Recommended Posts

I agree I like it! I think it's very fitting for sure! Knowing her tho that wont be the title lol but hearing her explain the basic jist of the story (surviving in a "man's world") I think it would be a great title & of course references her (the song of course). I like the idea. Can't wait to see this either!! I don't know how I feel about the fact that whoever is in it will be singing her songs versus using her actual music but I am going to remain open minded without having urealistic expectations. Too soon to have a real opinion I'm just beyond exciting that she's working on something like this! Always wished for an auto-biography over a biopic but as long as it's coming from her I will take whatever I we can get! There's always time for a book on down the line because she is far from "done" I think! What other titles could there possibly be that relate to her career while also encapsulate a good title for something like this? I'm gonna brainstorm on that one for a bit myself but am anxious to hear others thoughts on the subject too.......

"Live to Tell" sounds very evocative, but I feel like anyone can have that title for their autobiographical movie. I feel it has to be something uniquely Madonna and in-your-face, yknow what I mean? Something that will make people go "omg it's about Madonna I wanna see it!" So any of these three 

1. LUCKY STAR

2. LIKE A PRAYER

3. BLOND AMBITION

Live To Tell is quite apt seeing as so many of her contemporaries have died. Death has been all around her for most of her life. Her mother, her friends to aids, her musical peers, her own miscarriage etc. 
so yeah I’d be very happy with Live To Tell. The song was her first serious song and has always been shrouded in mystery. It’s also severely underrated and overlooked as a song of hers. It gets lost in the pack. She should have paid it more dues.

Honestly I’m kinda sad, I don’t want anybody else to play Madonna since there’s only one, and that there can only be one..... I’m not a fan of these movies, idk but the artists loose value when they do these, it feels just like they’re making a cartoon over a real iconic movie

I kind of feel like that too but after seeing Rami Malek play Freddie Mercury it can be done well - it just needs the right actress to play her and of course it needs to be done in a stylish way and well written too 😉

In all honesty i just wish they’d take old videos from her because I know clearly that those videos of her in the dance school and in the first song writing process exists, some of them are even in other documentaries, but i mean i cannot change that and i hope we’ll be getting a GH album together with the movie

Love it. Live to tell is simply the best song ever written so why not name the movie after it? And have that song and it’s music as a main emotional part of the film. It’s perfect. If it was something more provocative and in your face then people would just dismiss it as “oh, here she goes again” and not go see the film. Live to tell is classy, mature and has a great connection to Madonna’s rise to fame.

I dunno Live to Tell doesn’t have that ‘ring’ like Rocket Man or Bohemian Rhapsody. 
I feel like it should be something that people see and are like, “that’s about Madonna!” 
Something like Material Girl but even I hate that title lol. Ugh this is so hard!

I guess I can see Live to Tell
