Frozen + Bedtime Story remixes on streaming 3/12 , 3/19


Recommended Posts

Nothing came up today in New Zealand... Guess we'll be taking a break this week. 
Although a reminder that "Like a Prayer" popped up literally two days before release date, so I'll never exclude the element of surprise with these. Just chanting for a "Ray of Light"/"Express Yourself" scalping in May, everything else can take its time.

Its also crazy that by the end of this week, Juniors Bedtime Story single remix will probably have more plays than the album edit which has been on streaming for maybe a decade on GHV2.

These releases are doing wonders for her streaming profile now they're being done correctly.

Poor Orbital were robbed, they deserved the boost from being listed moreso than Junior having delivered (possibly) the best remix of her career!

It was the right choice, boosting a 9-minute remix can be damaging instead of good. Those are sent to Release Radar weekly playlists for Madonna's fans on Spotify, but if they skip the song (and that's likely to happen with an old long remix) it's damaging, not helpful. :cute:

Which bodes really well for future EP's . They're more likely to include the promo only remix edits not typically found on the mainstream release. 

Fever (edit one) my hole is ready.

Pretty sure she recorded the new vocals for DCFMA when she was still pregnant, months before the album was released, so it was always planned to give it the club treatement.

Alan Parker would have had no place instructing Warner how to manage M's non-soundtrack-related releases. I mean, they literally recrafted her image to be a slinky balladress to pave the way for Evita. A few club mixes of a 10 year old song were not going to derail that makeover.

This is not my oppinion, I am paraphrasing what I read in an interview with someone involved in the project but can't remember who. You can dig it up on this forum. 

Also it's one thing to record the vocals and another to fight to get the remixes released. Yes she recorded the vocals when she was pregnant and then took the finished product to warner for approval. And yes they were meant for club play but the struggle was to get them out commercially - for people to buy. I wish I could remember who exactly said this and where I read it but that was the conversation. So don't kill the messenger 😉

Not true actually. Bedtime Stories was gonna have 5 singles and they were sort of announced pretty early on during the era. The fifth single was going to be Forbidden Love with Don't Stop as b-side. It was cancelled in favor of I Want You (which also got cancelled) but then put on Something to Remember.

You know for a fact that they announced 5 singles early on during the era? Like, how early?

Getting wires crossed here, nobody involved in the movie would have had any say in LDLHA remixes which is what someone suggested.

MY bad. it was Andrew Lloyd Webber, not Alan Parker. And regarding the LDLHA remixes, I said MAYBE. Based on what the story was with DCFMA remixes.

Yes. I read it in the Bedtime Stories Genesis thread on Madonna-Nation. I don’t remember who from Madonna's team announced the singles though but it’s a pretty well-known fact that Forbidden Love was going to be a single.

Hence its inclusion on Something To Remember.

Ok thanks. yes i know about Forbidden Love being planned as a single but i figured it got replaced by Human Nature after the success of Take a Bow and Madonna was rewarded by getting to choose the 4th single instead.

Yeah ICON had announced on their website that she went into the studio to re-record the vocals. It sounds as if she only re-recorded the choruses and the ending though.

This is like one of the VERY rare cases where she did something like that. She hang up on producers who called her and asked if she could re-record the vocals for some Human Nature remixes.

The only other time I know she did it was for "Justify My Love".
