    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

    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'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!!

    "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!!!

    I've amended all three to a more conservative picture of Madonna - please can you cut down on the large amounts of nudity in some of these Madonna pictures, jio?

    Cheers.
    It's Madonna fault....she was such a bad girl !!!

    I think there is much more nudity in the video of "Vogue" (which was played by MTV 24/7 morning, noon, afternoon and evening 21 years ago i.e. in a much more conservative time than today) than on any of the pics I have posted. Still, if you think that the people on this site have never seen artistic pictures which include some slight nudity and they will be offended by it then feel free to change it AFTER asking me and letting me decide which pictures take the place of the ones you rather randomly removed. I made an effort to include nice pictures and not repeating the same ones so you could have done better than posting that ugly picture three times

    P.S. My next countdown will be my 100 favourite porn movies of all-time (don't worry I'll make sure not to post any pictures) lol

    Gah, rules!

    Love Boderline, its the only song I am completely familiar with so far [besides that Like A Prayer live song obviously]. Borderline is typical of Madonna's 80's work, fluffy but extremely enjoyable! Its probably one of her best 80's classics, along with Express Yourself.

    I'm sorry but there was nothing wrong with pic 54 although I understand the (minor) problems with the other two. So can I have back pic 54 please?

    Sky Fits Heaven... but I couldn't find it in good quality without the "Mer Girl" intro and outro.

    JML is stunning. Pretender OK.
    Borderline one of my very fave early songs.

    Are you charting Mer Girl or Sky Fits Heaven? Both are brilliant.

    Well yes it is a new song and it does sound great played really loud, although Madonna's delivery leaves a lot to be desired (like in all of "Hard Candy"). I guess if I was doing this next year, it would probably be far lower but I guess still within the Top 100. I really can't understand why she didn't include this in "Celebration" instead of the horrid "Revolver" (then again I did like "Revolver" in the beginning too lol).

    It was common in the '80s for remixes being just extended versions of the song and I really think they should return back to that at least for one remix in singles. What's the point of getting 5-6 bland house remixes everytime which all sound the same anyway? Even in the rare cases when one of those remixes is actually good (as in "Bedtime Story" or "Beautiful Stranger") we still get loads of rubbish. Put a house remix less and one extended remix 80s style

    "Bordeline" : a classic to me of the same level as "Holiday" or any early hits....!!
    Funny that most of the remix of her early work it was not other that a long version of the song: they didn't put much of effort in it !I Still see those remix as classic in a way!!!!!

    "Sky Fits Heaven"; Amazing gem, my fave off "Ray Of Light", love its hypnotic atmosphere!!

    "Animal" : Ok it's a good track, but is too high , IMO, undeservedly above many clssics, I guess this happened because it's a relatevily new song and didn't suffered the so famous overplayed factor most of her hits has been through over these long years....
