Ugh! The lyrics are SO embarrassing.
It feels like it was written by a nine year old,honestly.
I agree on B-Day Song and Spanish Lesson, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Superstar.
The lyrics are fun and the melody is catchy. It's like 80s Madonna. One of her best songs of the last years.
Superstar - again - is just a goofy song. Goofy in the same way Madonna and her personality is to be honest. I love it. Some Girls is the worst moment on MDNA but I appreciate it a lot more than I used to.

Spanish Lesson is her worst one. Atrocious. I can't believe it made the album!
Love Song is also awful. Her worst song from the 80s.
She recorded no bad ones in the 90s.

MDNA is generally awful but Superstar is still better than Turn Up The Radio and Gimme All Your Lovin'.

All her 80s songs are great.

First time I started skipping songs was when I bought Erotica.

True.

A whole new world opened up for me.
I was a fan, but this album made me obsessed about anything that had to do with Madonna.

Erotica... the problem is the songs are too long. I can understand people skipping the songs towards the back.

There is some unnecessary repetition of parts -- usually the bridge -- in some songs ('Waiting', 'In This Life' in reference to the bridge; 'Fever' and 'Why's It So Hard?' could also have a section or two cut), but for me that's the only major issue with Erotica on the whole. The live arrangement of 'Why's It So Hard?' from The Girlie Show (GREAT performance) is better than the album arrangement and the video version of 'Fever' rightfully removes said repetition.

These lies. :lol:

I've been listening to True Blue and admittedly it has grown on me recently, but 'Jimmy Jimmy' and 'Love Makes the World Go Round' are horrendous -- two of the absolute worst of her career -- and 'Where's the Party?', despite being perfectly melodic, has dated horribly. There's a huge discrepancy between the singles and the album tracks, more so on that album than any of her others, in my opinion, even though it's collectively a lot stronger than, say, Like a Virgin from the same period.

I think it was a byproduct of the CD format coming into fashion. Many artists in the early 90s as the CD became the prominent album format were concerned with filling up almost the entire eighty minutes of space on the disc.

Speaking of True Blue...she kept that atrocity that is Jimmy Jimmy and gave away a gem that is Each Time You Break My Heart :roll:
It seems bad decisions follow her since her early days :lol:
