Madonna: The Discography Rate - COMPLETE

  1. Give It 2 Me is incredible and remains a staple on my running playlist but this is about where I expected it to fall.

  2. Losing two 9's in a row isn't good, but it's nice to see "Give It 2 Me" outlasting most of her 2010's songs (though it's better than anything left from "Madame X").

    And I'm very glad that "Miles Away" is the winning song from "Hard Candy" - as it should be.

  3. Miles Away can leave any moment now
  4. Miles Away is absolutely the correct last track standing from Hard Candy and should stick around for a while longer.

    I never got the love for 'Miles Away'. Yes the lyrics are quite lovely but its always sounded unbelievably flimsy.

  6. I fucking adore 'Give It 2 Me'. The build up of the synths with each chorus is still genius, then the way they swirl (only way to describe it?) on the final chorus is incredible. Easily, my favourite track on Hard Candy.

    Miles Away is easily one of my lowest scores left.

  8. Miles Away being the last Hard Candy track standing is certainly...a thing that has happened.

    I don't hate it, but I almost never seek it out on its own and it's easily my least favorite of the album's singles. The fact that it got a tour-montage video didn't really help.
  9. Material Girl out. Popjustice.
    Not everyone is coming to the top50.

  10. 4 Minutes was done so dirty. It’s such a fantastic song.

  11. When I first got the 'Like a virgin' album at Christmas 84 I remember loving the album except for 'Material girl' which hadn't been released then. In fact, I thought it was utterly dreadful and couldn't understand what it was doing there. Then when it was announced as the follow up to 'Like a virgin' I genuinely thought her career was over as it was so awful. Once I saw the video it made sense, but it's far from my favourite although I kind of enjoy it now.

    'Give it 2 me' is the only major saving grace of 'Hard Candy' and is the very DNA of what she is and should be like a 'Let me entertain you' staple on her tours. The remixes are indeed bawptastic.
  12. Take A Bow can... do exactly that, at this point.

    On a completely unrelated note, was this kind of hen night fancy dress due to the cowboy look during the Music campaign, or was it already a thing:
    Tag yourself, etc.

    I’m sure I have a memory of tacky cowboy hats cropping up in River Island and places around the time of the album campaign but I might be wrong.

  14. I like Love Profusion quite a bit, but...well there's room for everyone in the 11 Club, I'll just say that!
  15. Love profusion is literally the definition of 'this will do'.

    Finally a day where two of my remaining sub-8 scores left back-to-back!
  19. Love Profusion is basically what every crusty old white guy thinks Madonna with a guitar sounds like. Glad to see it go.
