Madonna singles rate.

Don't know if anyone has ever done this before, but I thought i'd give it ago. If there's not much interest I'll not bother. All you have to do is rate each of Madonna's UK singles out of 10 and send it to me by PM. I'll tot up the scores and averages and then count them down in this thread providing I get enough responses to make it worthwhile.

Note- I'm only including the UK singles- starting with Holiday and finishing with Celebration- no Me Against The Music either as she's a featured artist. Here goes- rates to the left please:

Blimey, that is a back catalogue and a half.
 
Oh I thought it was a comment on how many singles she's done per year over her career or something, haha! I'll have a go and rating these songs later.

EG.
 
Excellent. Thanks for all the votes so far. Need a few more to make it more authenic. Anyone know any mad M fans that may want to vote please PM them.
 
Ok, this is now closed. I'll start the countdown from 65 tomorrow. Anyone want to guess what our (collectively) least favourite Madonna UK single is?
 
No, Conan, not Hanky Panky.

65. FEVER average rate 4.4/10
Year : 1993
UK Peak : 6

The fourth release from the Erotica album, this was a dance version of the old Peggy Lee standard. I'm not surprised it has finished bottom of the pile as it's a bit shit really isn't it? Still, one PJ'er gave it full marks. I'll leave it up to them to admit to it.
 
I only love the live version of Fever from The Girlie Show Tour. What an attitude she shows in it.


Sadly I missed this.
 
Fever's ok. I rated it as one of her lowest with a 6 out of 10 score. It's not that it's bad it's just that it's not the Peggy Lee version which is better. It suffers from cover-that's-not-as-good-as-the-original syndrome.
 
I'm a tad upset about this one.

64. THE LOOK OF LOVE average rate 4.9

Year 1987
UK peak : 9

This was the third single release from the Who's That Girl soundtrack, a ballad which received little promotion and didn't have a proper video. It managed to get to #9 in the UK, at that time her lowest chart position since Lucky Star.

It's a Pat Leonard collaboration, so I guess the idea was to have a Live To Tell part 2 for the film. It's obviously not as good as Live To Tell but it's still a corker. Why do you all hate it so?
 
Ouch, poor Fever! I think I gave it a 7. It was one of my favourite singles off Erotica, which was generally one of those albums (for me) where the best tracks weren't 45s.

EG.
 
I don't recall the Look of Love being a single and didn't even know the song till I got the Who's That Girl album in about 1998. It's quite lovely really but I can see why it's low down on the list as it's just not very well known.
 
It is a TRAVESTY that Look Of Love is rated so low by Madonna fans. While it's no classic, it's better than most of the atrocities she's released since 2002.

I don't know the Peggy Lee version. But Fever is good, not great on the album. But her live performance on the Girlie Tour makes it a ten live.
