So here's a surprise at our latest tie. 132 SCORE: 7.112 2015 PLACEMENT: DOWN 54 - 78 of 210 (7.623) HIGHEST SCORE: 10 x 11 (@funkyg @eatyourself @sfmartin @Andrew.L @Up Down Suite @Hurricane Drunk @scottdisick94 @joeee @Lila @wintersleep @nametag) LOWEST SCORE: 3 x 3 (@Phonetics Boy @Sideout @happiestgirl) MY SCORE: 5/10 A dance-pop song... being punished for being bad instead of being exalted purely on the basis your taint feels nice against the floor when slamming it in time to the beat? Looks like y'all are growing! I really don't even want to talk that much about this to be honest. It's one of the worst sounding songs in Madonna's discography. Maybe there was a point in its creation where it didn't sound like rotten, compressed garbage, but we were unfortunately not privy to that pocket in time, because what reached us was fucking awful. Madonna's vocals sound like she recorded them in a cupboard with the microphone on the other side of the door. The production has precisely no bass and therefore no soul. There are blowouts and distortions all over the place. This would be bad for a bedroom-popstar six days into their GarageBand free trial, and it's absolutely unforgivable from the Queen of Pop. Madonna claiming that she needs to dance followed by that """beat drop""" that doesn't actually drop anything other than the ball. A mess. The song was performed during the final stretch of the MDNA Tour setlist, where at least a few of the issues that plague its studio version were ironed out. Madonna was late at my date that night, so I never got to see it, but I was also spared the twelve minute lament of "Like A Virgin" so I think it was a positive thing overall. The most amusing thing though was that she soundchecked it earlier on that day. Why was letting people in for the soundcheck even a thing? I've included the official... martial-arts-themed (?) performance below, along with said rehearsal footage with an uncomfortable level of zoom for the kiis. The way she refuses to even look up at the audience asdfghjkl. I mean, tea. Scottish people are difficult to look at.
