  • Why the hate for Hard Candy songs? I think it's her last really great album. She lost inspiration after "Celebration".

      Agree. Tragic and pathetic. Her taste is just...
      Madonna is the queen of pop and the biggest selling female music artist of all time!

        Working with Justin, Timbaland, Pharrell and Danja was far from an inspired choice, but I think it’s undeniable how they brought their a-game for Madonna - the first half of the album (Candy Shop to She’s Not Me) is as strong a run of songs as any on an album that came before it.

        Hard Candy has aged really well, only sounding a bit dated on 4 Minutes - but it’s still a killer song. I really wish Madonna and Warner had parted on better terms and given Give It 2 Me and Miles Away the treatment of deserved - the GI2M video was pretty bad and Miles Away deserved a big budget video.
        Yeah I remember that 4 minutes were no. 1 at the download charts for 2 weeks. It should have been no. 1 but lack of radio djs airing and politics of agism blocked it doing it.
        so pathetic djs and clear channel manipulation.

        • The US charts are so crazy for including airplay, imagine a song not reaching its full potential due to radio stations controlling/influencing that part of the charts - always thought that's crazy...

              Same can be said about streaming and Spotify controlling the charts with their playlisting.
              5.05.2009 / 6.22.2011 / 4.24.2013 / 4.25.2013 / 3.1.2014 / 9.13.2014 / 7.21.2016 / 7.14.2018 / 7.15.2018

                  That's certainly a worry these days and if we're honest it was the major record labels back in the day too...there's always been an element of it & you could say by allowing the streaming which isn't paid for to count its the same as letting the airplay count if you think about it...

                    I know it's hated by most here, but when I think of infectious, I think of Superstar. Now that song is infectious.
                    Really? To me "4 Minutes" it's a 9/10 while "Superstar" it's a 4/10 - was never a favourite of mine.

                      Obviously not tik tok level of "going viral"
                      You had a lot of people on you tube talking about the video,dancing to the coreography she and Justin do on it and even making parodies of it.
                      like this,for example:

                      https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sun...outputType=amp

                      Back then ,I was already subscribed to several you tubers(even though they were not even called that yet lol).
                      ​​​The 4 Minutes video was a huge,huge success and her team missed the opportunity to capitalize on it.
                      Indeed and it was #02 Best selling single of the year worldwide according to IFPI and #03 on Mediatraffic (that also takes airplay into account).

                        Really. "4 Minutes" was the first lead single I didn't like and still don't.
                        "Superstar" reminds me of 80s Madonna when all her songs were catchy on first listen.

                        • Time Stood Still should have been a single. Such an obvious hit.

                            I love Superstar as well, but I bet we’re one of the few over here, lol

                                  I don’t know why she picked Celebration, Revolver and It’s So Cool over Broken. She recorded four songs for the GH and put the best song in the vault.

                                  There’s a demo too, which I believe is from 2002, making it part of the American Life sessions:



                                  I remember there was talk it might have been from 2007 though, but I don’t think so - It’s So Cool was originally from 2002 too, so I’m inclined to think she dug both out from the same era.

                                    I like "Broken" but to me "Celebration" is 10 times better.
                                    "Broken" is way better than "Revolver" and "It's So Cool" though.

                                    • Broken is one of my favorites by her. It’s So Cool as well.
                                      Celebration was contagious and Revolver was underrated. But all four songs rank high on my list.

                                      • Love Revolver and Celebration is ok at best.
                                        Find the other two meh

                                        • Yeah Celebration is the perfect song for that GH. Its dancey and care free in the way Madonnas early songs were such as Everybody, Holiday, and Physical Attraction (especially the talking). Brokens good but its not that great.

                                                The face tuning I just overlook now, but she’ll be showing that Brazilian bum lift off until she’s in her 70s.
