Happy 15, American Life. Iconic single, even if for all the wrong reasons. Can't wait for the album's anniversary this upcoming week. :D 8-)

The entire era has some brilliant remixes, perhaps the best of any Madonna era.
One of my favorite albums ever.
With the most awful remixes ever.

I agree to a certain extent with Spiritboy about AL, not that it’s her worst song ever, but one of her worst lead single, yes it is!

I think AL the song would've gone over better if not for the uber-neoconservatism of the Bush years. Yea, it's bad with Trump but Trump isn't half as popular as Bush was in the wake of 9-11.

For me it's not among her best singles too. The other American Life singles were stronger in my opinion.

AL remains for me her lowest point , commercially speaking, even Erotica didn’t cause such backlash!!

The way she re emerged with Confession was EPIC, though!!

Wish they've streamed Madonna's Coachella performance back then :(
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Madonna needs to headline it. I can’t believe she’s never headlined a festival so far into her career.

Probably after she dies and then it will be too late. I really feel it's one of her favorite album and that she's been really disappointed in the way it was received.

i'd say MDNA and Rebel Heart had worse chart runs than AL did.

One of my best friends actually went to see her at Coachella in 2006. He told me how he and some friends camped there early and sat through artists they don't care for just so they could secure a good spot to watch Madonna.

Sad thing is that roadies for some of the other artists would yell "f****ts" at him and his friends for waiting for Madonna. Ironic how so much has changed in over a decade.

Despite their beef, its not really a surprise that Gaga likes Madonna's music. Kind of hard to be in that genre and from that generation and not at least love a dozen of her songs.

I'm not myself when you're around
I'm not myself standing in a crowd
I'm not myself and I don't know how
I'm not myself, myself right now

Jesus Christ will you look at me
Don't know who I'm supposed to be
Don't really know if I should give a damn
When you're around, I don't know who I am

I'm not myself when you go quiet
I'm not myself alone at night
I'm not myself, don't know who to call
I'm not myself at all

I always wished that I could find someone as beautiful as you
But in the process I forgot that I was special too
Praise it ! 8-)

One of my favorites. :D
Mine as well :D
If there's anything like a 'trinity' regarding best AL songs,that'd be X-Static Process, Easy Ride and Intervention ,for me.
Although I also love Nothing Fails and Nobody Knows Me.
I've also grown to love I'm So Stupid a song that I used to hate until very recently.
I still can't stand Mother & Father though. It sounds so unnecessary and stupid,poorly made in every sense.

X-Static Process is a favorite of mine along with Intervention, Nothing Fails and Love Profusion.

I also like Hollywood, American Life and Mother & Father a lot. Mother & Father has great lyrics and is very catchy IMO.

I'm So Stupid is a song I didn't like that much, but nowadays I just skip it completely. It's not for me.
