  • "Miss You" : It justly remained unreleased, good lyrics though!!

    "Mother And Father" : Love it to death, the most engaging of the "American Life" album along with "Love Profusion"

    "Impressive Istant" : Such a solid track, love its noisy sound! I would long this to be a single!

    "Miles Away" : As I've said somewhere else, this is one of the few good things from that bland album which is "Hard Candy"!!!
    There's only one Queen
    and that's MADONNA.

    • Impressive - Instant - a title that describes itself!

      • Bedtime Story: just one word: GENIUS! Bjork is one of my all time favourites so this 'collaboration' definitely worked for me. One of the highlights of Bedtime Story, even though I have to admit it didn't really fit with most of the album.

        Waiting: one of my favourites off Erotica (I say that about pretty much every song in there as this is one of my favourite Madonna albums haha).

        Express Yourself: This is my least favourite single off LAP and possibly my least favourite song off the whole album. I enjoy this performance a lot though, she was hugely popular then! She could have avoided the 'Yeah' at the end...she sounded like a loser haha

        Mother and Father: this is a very nice song, Madonna sounds good on here and it was a good break from the trio of AMAZING slow songs NF, Intervention and Xstatic Process.

        Impressive Instant: I love this song! It's like being inside a rocket travelling through space!! I remember how excited I was when Madonna was to perform her first promotional gig to present Music and this was one of the songs performed.

        Miles Away: One of the few good things about Hard Candy, this is probably the only song I still listen to from that album together with She's Not Me and (rarely) Heartbeat.

        Miss You: Not really feeling it...I guess it wasn't released for a reason haha

            • I don't get all the hate for "Miss You" I love it. I also disagree with the notion of "Express Yourself" being the worst single off LAP. I dislike "Cherish" a lot (and there are also two more songs from that album which didn't make it into the Top 100 but I ain't gonna reveal). But yes, without the performance "Express Yourself" would probably be somewhere between 91-100.

                I quite like Cherish!! Even though my favourites from LAP are still the title single of course, Oh Father, Promise TO Try, Love Song, Spanish Eyes, Till Death Do Us Part and Dear Jessie! (Another case where almost every song in the album is a favourite haha)..

                  Well the one song you didn't name (I don't consider "Act Of Contrition" a song) is in so that means that 2 songs from your list are out (although I do like the whole album other than "Cherish")

                    Almost every song is a favourite of mine and the 2 that I've left out, Keep; It Together and Express Yourself are still good songs.. and even though Act of Contrition can't really be considered a song I really like it hahaha

                    Curious to know where the LAP songs will be on this chart!!

                    • Well one is in the Top 10 (not the title track). I love Act Of Contrition too, it's genious.

                                  • "More" : Not my fave from "I'm Breathless", good vocal though!!!

                                    "Set The Right" : It makes me think she really should collect all her unreleased track, demos etc and release a proper album, I know it will never happen, but dreams have not cost ! It will offer much better material than what we have heared listening to her last crap effort.....HC!!

                                    "Swim" : More than a song this rapresent an emotional journey to me, beautiful!

                                              • "Frozen" is a classic, and the video put Madge at the top of her beauty!!

                                                "Spanish Eyes", I remeber at the time a lot of people claimed incorrectly this song was just a follow up of "La Isla Bonita".
                                                She really has proven to give her best with the ballads and SE is one of them.

                                                "The Look Of Love": my fave of the WTG soundtrack along with "Can't Stop"
                                                There's only one Queen
