Then you need to come in here more often... just try not to piss off the regularsMrLeonix wrote:The funny thing is that most people here don't realize Madonna is actually my #1 female fave. Ask every person that has run a females countdown thread in here and they'll tell you that I've always Madonna as my #1 and Britney always #2.
So yep, I'm not just a Britney fan. I'm a fan of many artists and Rock music and Madonna is my #1 female and hell yeah can give criticism whatever the hell I want.

3 years after MDNA era started RH was about to be released, 3 years after RH era started we have nothing, and she's not even in studio.
I don't think it's terrible, but I don't like her froggy-sounding vocals. The background vocals do a lot for it, and the production is ace. For me, overall, it was just kinda generic, with a generic message (albeit a well-intentioned and important one), and kinda hokey in the lyric department.RayRay wrote:^ To me Living For Love sounded so epic. To me it felt like a true lead single like most of her lead singles. Usually very well chosen. I still don't understand why I seem one of the few that actually cares for this song.
For me, it doesn’t go anywhere. It should be building up to this huge choir part where they just sort of take over the entire song... with the music and Madonna fading out leaving the choir singing their bit a cappella. Basically the song doesn’t build up to that euphoric moment it needs. It should have been a bit like LAP actually, where she let the choir take centre stage.JJeffs wrote:I don't think it's terrible, but I don't like her froggy-sounding vocals.

I wouldn’t want a cover (unless it was live). But it’s such s beautiful song... Madonn needs a beautiful song atm imo. It would work wonders for her.RayRay wrote:Just hoping she never covers Both Sides Now. There are so many artists out there that have sung this song.
Not much change she can add something that hasn't been done before.
"Living For Love" is in my Top 3 favorite lead singles by her. It was a great return for her, especially after the lackluster that the "MDNA" era was. The Grammy performance of it (where Taylor Swift was shown dancing and singing along) is amazing.RayRay wrote:I love the intro of Living For Love where it's all about Madonna's voice.
I love the lyrics.
Then when the chorus kicks in, you realise this is so catchy and unforgetable.
And the backing vocals give it something really up lifting.
To me it's like a modern day Like A Prayer.
It's very empowering.
Its been years since I listened to the demo version of the officially released versions. I remember being quite disappointed her vocals were the same takes in both demo and final versions - I found it incredibly lazy. I always believed she crafted vocals around the final version of the track, rather than crafting the track around the vocals, so at the time it felt like she had recorded a bunch of songs and was simply shopping them around to producers to see what they came up with for her. Which is what happened... and whilst I have no doubts she wasn’t hugely involved in the production side, I prefer it when Madonna and her one producer are sat in a studio coming up with something amazing between them - like she did with Mirwais and Stuart Price. I like the idea of an intimate setting for creativity... too many cooks and what not.Yoshie wrote:menime: we share the same favourite and least favourite songs from Rebel Heart.
I still love the Rebel Heart record. It's definitely her most bloated album due to the expansiveness of the tracklist, but there was a lot of quality material on the record that I think often gets overlooked by her fanbase. It was by no means an experimental release, but listening to the demo recordings and the finalised versions is a very interesting experience; there are sometimes many discrepancies between the demo and the completed song that, to me, reveal the Rebel Heart recording sessions to have been some very creative ones. I know it was total hell for Madonna that those demos leaked, but to a point I'm glad we got them because it gave us fans a lot of insight into the changes that a song can go through throughout the recording process, that the many incarnations a song can have can be intriguing and sometimes surprising.
Agreed - and the video was amazing. But truthfully I don’t think there were many worthy single condensers to be honest. Nothing else aside from the 3 singles feel like they would have been worthy additions to her singles catalogue. I thought JOA could have worked, but I’m glad she didn’t release it. Bodyshop might have, but it was perhaps too frivolous a song. Rebel Heart might have worked as a 4th dingle actually.MrLeonix wrote:
"Ghosttown" was IMO the best single.
