201 SCORE: 5.827 2015 PLACEMENT: 184 of 210 (5.73) HIGHEST SCORE: 10 x 4 (@eatyourself @dancingwithmyself @joeee @Verandi... what's the matter with you people?) LOWEST SCORE: 0 x 5 (@Euphoria @NightmareBoy @Fortune @Bleu Noir @Mister_G) MY SCORE: 3/10 One of my lowest scoring songs, I think. I actually went back to listen to it again to see if I had maybe been a little harsh on it but... nope. It's all just a bit sad, isn't it? That cheap, turgid production, the badly produced vocal where she's been pitched up and chipmunked to hell and back, Wayne's sleepy ass verse. It sounds like something that was just cobbled together out of bits and pieces they found lying around, but Madonna was also touring Sticky & Sweet for the vast majority of 2009, so I'm guessing that's maybe not too far from the truth. David Guetta's remix kinda goes off after about sixteen drinks I guess. Funnily enough, this was her last ever single with Warner, who she had been signed to since the very beginning of her career. Bit of a whimper to finish on with a song that sounds half-finished and doesn't have a video to its name, but Madonna had just signed to Live Nation for $120M, so I doubt she was that concerned in the end. I'm not sure if that deal was really all that sound from Live Nation's point of view considering Madonna still got an obscene share of the massive tour profits (I'm pretty sure it's something ridiculous like 80%?) on top of that money, and... well, they got the sales from MDNA onwards. To this day I think it remains a unique situation. Probably explains why her tickets have been getting more and more expensive in the last decade. Speaking of tours, "Revolver" actually received an outing during the uncomfortably-gun-heavy-in-retrospect opening act of MDNA, complete with live autotune for maximum obnoxiousness. dOn'T fUcK wItH tHe QuEeEeEeEeEeNn!!! indeed.
