What is controversial in Gambler or Causing A Commotion, I think I didn´t get the point

It’s not only supposed to be controversial songs but also rebellious songs about Madonna fighting against whatever is in her way, against critics, doubters, etc.

Causing a Commotion & Gambler both fit that theme.

I always thought calling a greatest hits EVERYBODY: 

and the discs should be called 

Dance - dance songs 

Sing - ballads

Get Up And Do Your Thing - Controversial songs and Madonna doing Madonna 

OMG AMAZING!

I also like the idea of calling it "The Holy Trinity" in lieu with The Immaculate Collection.

Would have been cool if they also kept that concept for GHV2 and called it The Second Coming.

We'd have:

The Immaculate Collection
The Second Coming
The Holy Trinity (third compilation with three discs for three decades worth of hits)

OMITTED SINGLES:

Oh Father - Edit  * I know it's not a huge hit but my heart is bleeding !

Keep It Together - Single Mix  * This HAS to be in the Dance disc !

Bad Girl - Edit * Oh dear ! A GH without BG ? My heart can't!

What It Feels Like for a Girl - Radio Edit  * the A&B remix MUST be in the dance disc !

Nothing Fails - Radio Edit  * Love disc without NF ? IS there something more pure than NF ?

You know if it would have been possible, I would have tried to fit these in but the thing is:

Oh Father and Keep It Together were regional singles. The latter was a bit of a hit but not one of her most memorable although I love both of them. Oh Father was already included on STR and that’s honestly were it belongs, not on a GH album.

Bad Girl, imo belongs on STR but got omitted. Looking at Erotica Era singles, Rain and I’ll Remember were the bigger ballad hits. One could consider putting Bad Girl instead of Rain on the album because the latter was already included on STR.

WIFLFAG was already included on GHV2 and even that was a huge stretch because it was easily the most forgettable single. The remix doesn’t keep enough of the original song to be actually considered for a GH compilation. Maybe on a Remix best of.

Nothing Fails was the biggest flop out of all the singles from AL, as much as I love AL and all the songs on it. Being a GH, Nothing Fails really doesn’t qualify.

why is it that fans sometimes have better ideas than her own team?

tbf the 2000s didnt have as big of hits as the 80s and 90s.

especially the 2010s :dead: i blame the Madonna v Gaga rats preventing fans of either artist to enjoy the other's art.

Blame declining sales, war with Warner and 3 singles per album as standard for her 00’s albums where her 80’s & 90’s albums had 5-6. 
She also didn’t submit much to soundtracks in the 00’s

Die Another Day & American Pie. That’s it. 
Gags didn’t show up til the back end of Hard Candy really.
