So I guess we really are just starting to pick into my high scores huh. 56 SCORE: 8.355 2015 PLACEMENT: DOWN 16 - 41 of 210 (8.279) 11 x 1 @Candy Perfume Girl HIGHEST SCORE: 10 x 31 (@AshtrayHeart @Raichu @dodoriazarbon @eatyourself @Euphoria @sfmartin @DJHazey @Remyky22 @AllGagaLike @Suburbia @soratami @Endothelium @dylanaber @elear @godspeed @torontodj @NightmareBoy @scottdisick94 @Drew @RetroPhysical @joeee @VeryPSB @Miss Lange @clowezra @Digital Ghost @Trinu 3.0 @acl @LTG @nametag @FrozenNight @japanbonustrack) LOWEST SCORE: 5 x 2 (@Angeleyes @matthew.) MY SCORE: 9.5/10 A glittering, disco-drizzled, melancholic mid-tempo about love that can't happen but is anyway? I... don't think there really needs to be much of a story behind this one? I've spoken so much about how potent yearning for the forbidden is in pop in the last few nights of eliminations, so I'm not going to labour the point again. "Forbidden Love" is just a very, very, very good pop song all the way round. It's utterly air-tight. That topline is one the finest on an album full of them, the mood and the cadence of Madonna's voice is perfect, and it's perfectly placed in the mixed version of the album too. Yeah, I generally don't have much else to say. Sometimes the only thing to be said that is that a pop song is a very, very, very good. So that is where we will leave it, I think. ...Apart from the fact that we haven't yet discussed the performance from Confessions Tour, which is spectacular. After delivering an iconic rendition of "Live To Tell", the tone switches gears, and Madonna performs the track as she vamps about that diamond-encrusted cross. All the while, two dancers, one emblazoned with the star and crescent, the other with the Star of David, perform legitimately elaborate arm and hand choreography that puts Britney to shame. Madonna then joins in on proceedings, in what must have been one of the most tightly rehearsed numbers when they were in production. It's just so fast, and seamless, and complicated. The point is a fairly glib "everybody say love!" message, but the delivery is spell binding to watch. It's probably one of my most listened to/watched Madonna performances ever. Enjoy!
