I still think "Jump" is overrated as hell.
It's my favourite Confessions single.
Jump is good (and got us the iconic sync deal with The Devil Wears Prada!). The video was kind of a letdown but I lowkey loved her Death Note wig.
Honestly I think all the right songs were chosen as singles from Confessions.
Jump isn’t overrated - it’s underrated. In general anyway.
Which is wrong. It and Get Together are the best songs released as singles from Confessions and those two scream Madonna more than Hung Up and Sorry (both of which are basically 10s in their own way too). Jump is just so fucking inspirational. It’s a flawless single run but this track is far more important to like... the story of “her” if that makes sense. It’s the “actually, fuck that!” and deserved finger-flip to Keep It Together and that songs BS message. She can make it alone.
I didn’t know he was ill. I wonder if that’s why he hasn’t worked with his sister-in-law for a while?
Wishing Joe a quick recovery and hopefully more inspired collaborations.
They supposedly did some stuff for Madame X
They're also not really in the same wheelhouse hence their work together being so sparse. Joe is incredibly prolific and stays bookedt and busy. Rhiannon Giddens just received a Grammy nod for Best Americana Roots Performance for a song from album he produced.
'Jump' sounds better in the context of the album, than as a stand alone single. But it was the only viable final single release.
Yes, it just made sense somehow.
I've said it before but Jump has the same vibration throughout that Into The Groove and Deeper & Deeper have. A warmth, a familiar feeling and good pure energy. The kind where you lose yourself but it's safe and all encompassing. You're in it.
The extended version of Jump is the way to go.
I listened to Impressive Instant on the bus to work this morning and ascended.
Totally. I've always thought that if Madonna's message was distilled into one defining (defiant) lyric "I can make it alone" would be it. Jump is the most MADONNA song ever for me. I mean:
There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that I wait, the more time that I waste
The liberal borrowing of West End Girls in Jump also elevates it.
Just having a bit of old school appreciation of Madonna and seeing a. how smart she was in adapting underground culture to mainstream success and b. how this song in particular is enjoying a renaissance within our current times
I do hope she does something to mark 30 years of Vogue. I for one still love the song (especially the single version).
Vogue, just has to be celebrated by her next year for its Pearl anniversary.
No hyperbole, Vogue is one of the greatest songs of all time. An instant mood lifter, banger of the highest order, and passionate love letter to the LGBTQ+ community all at once.
