    • "To Have And Not To Hold" : It is really too low Jio!! This song is breathtakingly beautiful! As its music starts I still have the chill everytime I play it, after more than a decade!!!!

      "Gone", essential, simply, beautiful!!! It remainds me of her concert in Milan in 2001, she dedicated it to G.Versace who was recentely passed away: it was a touching moment!!!

      "Hanky Panky" : Exhilarating beat, not my fave of her actually!!!
      There's only one Queen
      and that's MADONNA.

      • I've missed a few rounds so I'll comment on my favourites only!

        Swim: Well it comes fro ROL so of course I love it, such a great track, it still sounds current.

        Set The Right: good unreleased song. You can tell it was recorded during the American Life sessions straight away.

        Spanish Eyes: Wonderful ballad, I still cannot understand why this wasn't a single.

        The Look of Love: my favourite song from WTG, such an underrated Madonna song!!

        Frozen: great lead single, great video and great performance!!

        Thief of Hearts: one of my favourites off Erotica. I like the instrumentals here a lot.

        Drowned World: Good opening for the tour and great performance. I love this song it caresses your ears

        You'll see: so weird to see Madonna performing at TOTP lol.. great song

        Like a Prayer: my favourite Madonna song ever so I won't add anything else.

        Lucky Star: one of my favourites from her early stuff. I like this performance but I liked the one from the CT even more, so unexpected!!

        Like a Flower: this is probably one of my favourite unreleased songs..again no idea why this hasn't made the final cut.

        Animal: it's an ok song but still better than a lot of Hard Candy hehe

        Sky Fits Heaven/Mer Girl: my favourite performance from DWT.. Sky Fits Heaven is one of my favs off ROL and Mer Girl is so relaxing!!

        Gone: How great to see this song!! It's one of the finest moments in Music and I love the lyrics.

        To Have and Not To Hold: How I wish this was a single!! I would have even preferred it to Nothing Really Matters as the final single from ROL. The video could have been amazing!!

            Me neither...infact the whole IM BREATHLESS album (aside from Vogue ofcourse LOL) is just not my kindof Madonna.

              I agree about HP, but "I'm Breathless" had its high moments : besides "Vogue" obviously, "Back In Business", "Something To Remember", "Now I'm Following You (part II)", "What Can You Loose" are all solid tracks!!!

              • I personally love "Hanky Panky" and the whole "Breathless" album. Dare I say that Now I'm Following You part 2 and Vogue are my least favourite songs in there. OK Vogue did make it into my Top 100 whereas half of "I'm Breathless" didn't but I like Breathless much more as a body of work than as individual songs and Vogue just doesn't fit in

                            • Now we're talking!

                              I love Beautiful Stranger; always felt that it was lost amongst the pereceived epicness of Ray Of Light, despite it being perhaps in the top 2 best tracks from the album. As for Jump, that's my favourite Madonna song of the decade!

                              That Sooner Or Later performance from the Oscars is very good too, love her entrance!

                              • 41 Angel
                                43 Jump
                                46 Hanky Panky

                                Jump is great
                                These foolish games are tearing me apart

                                • Beautiful Stranger: Great feel-good song, the video is hilarious, nice to see that side of Madonna after so much seriousness during the ROL era (and her previous albums were pretty serious too!).

                                  Jump: The song is ok, one of my least favourites off Confessions! Just never really got into it.

                                  Angel: amazing song!! So much better than its single companion Into The Groove and one of the best off the Like A Virgin album together with Dress You Up.

                                  Sooner or Later: the Oscars performance really made me love this song. Otherwise I'm not a big fan of I'm Breathless, not because I don't like the music but because I don't think that type music suits Madonna. This song is really good though and the performance was perfect.

                                  • "Soon Or Later" : Let's not forget this song won the Oscar guys
                                    BTW: such a solid track, although it's not my genre!
                                    Madonna, at the top of her game, showed no fear to risk approaching a whole album(bar Vogue) playing a style far by miles from her pop style during her period of absolute stardom: do you imagined M.Jackson (her male equvalent)dare to do something similar at the time??

                                    "Angel" : One of my fave from "LAV" although I admit it sounds pretty outdated today!! I always longed it could have had a real proper video :-?

                                    "Beautiful Stranger" : Still play and prefer the Calderone radio edit over the original version!!

                                    "Jump" : I've been overplaying this song to death....till I get almost tired of it! One of my fave from COADF, glad it was released as a single, although its video didn't match up with the song!!

                                            • Wow top 40 already!

                                              Erotica: Mixed feelings about this performance and in general in regards to all the negativity surrounding the Sex book. The song is absolutely great though, one of the most courageous lead singles ever, if not the most courageous one.. The rest of the album is just amazing.

                                              Love Profusion: Good moment in AL. The video is so simple and she looks her age for once. Very enjoyable song.

                                              Paradise: What a great performance, I love Isaac's voice in it, fits perfectly. This version really challenges the album version quality-wise!

                                              Comment


                                              • "Love Profusion": It was and still is my fave from AL! Love how the acoustic sounds of the start goes into electronic .... nice blend!!

                                                "Erotica": I personally truly love it, love every single thing from that era: singles, concepts, video, artworks, . Madge herself was sexy than ever! And love how she defenetly gave a kick to whomever was claiming to have back the more reassuring Madge of the middle 80's!
                                                Regarding the song : her vocal and darkness atmosphere kinda reminded me of "Rescue me", which I loved too but in a minor scale!!

                                                Paradise (Not For Me): it shows fully the other side of that medal Madonna rapresents , that part of the medal that I actually love the most and that made of her the artist I admire above all: perfect pop machine but also inspirig, artistic and often out of the cliches!!!!!
                                                There's only one Queen
                                                and that's MADONNA.
