Madonna - General Discussion

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by debord, Jan 14, 2009.

  1. Something To Remember was a better reissue, done separately from the EU vinyls, so I wonder if it's gonna be any different from its EU reissue from a couple of years ago?
     
  2. I just want a Celebration reissue.

    I would so love it if the Bedtime Stories and Ray Of Light vinyls were coloured... For Ray of Light transparent blue and gold please.
     
  4. Hmph. The BS cover is shit quality on the vinyl in the US. The pictures are super grainy. The whole thing looks cheap. That said, it's a gatefold with an inner sleeve, though no new photos. I would have paid ten bucks more for a pink vinyl with sharper cover image.

  6. I want this Bedtime Stories vinyl. What has started this reappraisal? I've seen like 5 random articles re-examining it this week, plus across various forums. Love *heart emoji*.

    Lowkey one of her best forgotten treasures.

  7. I wish they'd put more effort into these sort of things. There's a very hi res cover (of both versions) ~out there that they could have easily used. Shame.

  8. I've always felt Madonna had great chemistry with her male co-stars even if the films were shit. She and Griffin were a blast together in Who's That Girl. Body of Evidence is trashy fun but she and Willem Dafoe did have chemistry.

    I love Who's That Girl - the animated opening credits, the music, Madonna and Griffin, Haviland Morris as Wendy Worthington, the tied-up bridesmaids (featuring a pre-Sheila Carter from Young and the Restless and pre-Trump supporter Kimberlin Brown). It's a fun '80s comedy.

    EDIT: I just learned that the co-writer Who's That Girl is the ex-husband of one of the judges I used to work for. He also wrote and directed Airplane II.

  9. I think I'll watch Who's That Girl. I am an eternal Madonna stan but I'm just not bothered about her films at all, or even trying to watch them. I got halfway through Evita.
     
  10. I feel like this is how anything concerning her back catalog is, though. I never want to get anything because, with misguided hope, I always think something more comprehensive will come out? I'm a fool.

  11. Madonna's album artwork really does shine on vinyl. Especially the early years.

    Probably the fact that it's finally being reissued on vinyl after 20+ years and a cancelled promise of a reissue in 2012. Combined with the resurgence in vinyl in the last few years as well the record historically being written-off or plain under-appreciated by the GP, I think people are really digging into how the album was not only pivotal but necessary for her during that era, but also the Madonna that we got for the rest of 90's.

    Just guessing though.
     
  13. Also it's bae.

    It's still basically useless to me outside of the singles and "Sanctuary", but get your lives, girls.

  15. I will ALWAYS WORSHIP Madonna for her creating the most erotic / S&M leftfield songs of all time; Erotica and Justify My Love.

    No Beyonce, Rihannas, Britneys, Janets, Gags etc - even all of them together come even close to that.

  16. So I just started listening to Bedtime Stories for the first time.

    I expected to hate it based on my previous perceptions and from comments I've seen but I really like it so far.

    Very different to her earlier stuff and it's actually a nice change. Don't Stop is a bop and so is Secret.

  18. Okay, maybe this is just because it's just a first play through but the second half of this a lot weaker than the first for me.

    Maybe it's just because the songs aren't as instant?

    Sis, take "Secret", "Human Nature", "Sanctuary", and the title track and run.
     
  20. Just reached Sanctuary now.

    Still have to hear Take A Bow and the title track.

    Also, no love for Survival?!
