  • Madonna - La Isla Bonita

    I can't believe this almost went to Michael Jackson

    This is probably her most famous song here in Turkey, along with Like A Prayer. In 1993, she was shocked that so many people knew this song in Istanbul when she came with The Girlie Show.

      MJ turned down the instrumental, not the song complete with lyrics. In his defence, it wouldn't have worked on Bad.

              One of my favourite Madonna songs and her first number one single in both Germany and France.

                        A favorite of mine. Really wished for it to be released as a single.
                        So glad when it got released and it became such a big hit.

                        Never liked the video much though. I imagined her dancing on a beach with handsome guys.

                            Keep in mind, the song was re-worked a bit when Madonna took it on. But I agree, I can't imagine MJ singing to this song. Though, I remember hearing about this back in the 80's that it originally being submitted to Jackson but he rejected it.

                            Great Madonna track and I think it's one of Madonna's favs too. Probably why she performs it tour after tour.

                              Michael Jackson would never have sang this song because Madonna wrote the lyrics. MJ was offered the music only, turned it down, and then it found its way to Madonna.

                                      I absolutely prefer Girlie Show and Sticky & Sweet versions to the original one

                                        I’ve been playing this a bit recently, it’s such a great song to play on a hot sunny day.

                                            I've always preferred the similar sounding Who's That Girl?

                                                It's good, among her best. One of those songs that even non-fans like.

                                                  Listening to The Girlie Show version right now. I'm a huge fan of live arrangements of this song.
