Isn't "Future Lovers" basically an "I Feel Love" rehash anyway?
Quite. One of the things I've always loved about Confessions is that, as a whole, the era is basically a love letter to Giorgio Moroder and 1970s pop culture in general. I live for the photoshoot being a straight-up restaging of Ann-Margret and Tina Turner's characters in Tommy.
Kylies Light Years.
They can both be rehashes. In fact, there are definitely more songs that sound like "I Feel Love." What an influential bop!
Queens of including samples of I Feel Love in concert
Yeah it was the talky parts and the "connect to the sky future lovers fly" bits that made it feel like Light Years.
Less KM Airways and more.....well M Airways
Heaven On Earth is the best I Feel Bop rip-off.
As in I Feel Free?
I've always thought that both Future Lovers and Light Years sound very Ray of Light in terms of mood and melody, but I never made the connection between them. How weird! They're very similar, except Future Lovers is less campy.
I do love when she sings this line of the song and I do love the opening sounds...the bass sounds so good.
When did your name change from language to magic?
I’d write it again on the back of my hand,
And I know it sounds tragic
There's a lost Madonna classic buried in I'm Addicted's shitty MDNA-era mastering and I'm-on-a-tight-schedule vocals. The lyrics are great and the M-D-N-A chant is genius.
I'd suggest it was closer to Impressive Instant's thump than Future Lovers, although both songs sound infinitely fresher than I'm Addicted.
Impressive Instant is still that banger.
I'm having a Music night and the album is finally clicking with me as a whole. I know Orbit relived past glories here but he was still a pro. Amazing sounding like a Beautiful Stranger knock-off isn't a bad thing after all these years considering it's a massive bop to begin with.
I wonder if Giorgio Moroder reached out to Madonna with his 2015 album? He worked with Sia, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Kelis..
I don’t think so, at least not that we know. I’m not sure they even know each other, to be honest!
His work with Donna Summer still blows my mind.
I would love to see him work with Madonna.
"Mothership" would be a dope title.
Disco god? Could that be one of the styles or is she mocking him? Interesting.
