I've always thought it is one of Madonna's most basic songs...
I stopped following her reactions after she thought that Stevie Nicks [on LDR's Beautiful People] is a man.
Don't know if it was posted before, but this is really interesting episode of Vox' "Switched on Pop" podcast, they discuss different vocal effects in Madonna's songs
It’s basic in structure for sure. The three note verse melody and the chorus is very simple one line repeat but as always I assumed it was a comment piece on the common perception of what it is to be a girl.
Simple and pretty...but when you look closer and read the lyrics there’s so much depth, intelligence and commentary.
It plays to the songs advantage.
What It Feels Like is one of her very very best songs and yet it seems to have been abandoned.

What It Feels Like For A Girl would have been the perfect fit for this tour.
This song is just truly wonderful.
ooh she nailed this. Nikki Harris feels
Actually, 2 weeks...
Speaking of not knowing her songs, before I actually started listening to full albums I only knew LAP from LAP or only Bonita from True Blue... I only knew Lucky Star and Borderline from debut...
It always depends where you live and how you got exposed to her music. For me, I was one of those lucky ones growing up during MTV era in early 00s, and MTV used to have Madonna weekends every few weeks where they would only play her videos and interviews.
Madonna is probably the most played recurrent artist on radios here, even less known songs from 90s are actually played a lot, but people these days can't really name those songs as Madonna songs.
Having said that, few days ago couple of teenage girls were walking next to me and sang Material Girl. It took me by surprise, but I guess it was Stranger Things impact.
Her profile really decreased over the years, and her respect has, let's be real, she is seen as a joke now to the point of her not being able to fix her image among GP...
To think that only a decade ago she was able to get quick little smash without moving her finger...
I’ve just discovered this, and as much as I love Donna De Lory, knowing Madonna wrote this and hearing her backing vocals at 2:22 really makes my heart ache, because it’s obviously about Sean and her voice just sounds so “Like a Prayer”-esq and melancholic. I want to hear Madonna’s version!
"Love Don't Live Here Anymore" came on shuffle today while I was washing my car. I had a moment. Got all wet.
Time will fix this. Also, there's still a lot of people out there who fully respect Madonna herself and her catalogue, and there's a lot of younger people intrigued to discover her back catalogue.
That was a classic that was a classic
Justice for This used to be my Playground.
I know Madonna reportedly hates the production of the song.
While I agree with you in some respects - foolish be the people or millenials who think Madonna is a joke because without Madonna, all your faves like Taylor, Katy, Ariana, Miley etc. probably would not exist.
Thank you for that - pretty interesting!
The Tracy Young remix of Crave is out now.
