Madonna Videos Rate [New Results - WINNER REVEALED!!!]

they / them
Hello and welcome to the Madonna videos rate!

madgevideos.jpg


I'm keeping this one simple as (a) I'm super-busy, and (b) there are so many videos to get through that you don't want to rabbiting on endlessly, trying to impress you with my rapier-sharp wit and clever punning.

There are Youtube links to sixty (60!) music videos below. To try and keep this vaguely manageable, you'll see there are no live videos if they're just taken from a longform release (so no Dress You Up), no clips videos, be they of movies (so no Into the Groove or Crazy for You) or old videos (so no One More Chance, thank the heavens). The videos for Don't Cry for Me Argentina and Another Suitcase are just the relevant sections of Evita, so you won't find them here either. You will find Miles Away, which I wasn't sure about including, as it is a live video, but it's not exactly the same as on the Sticky and Sweet DVD and has some extra bits, and putting it in brought us up to a round number, so there you go.

For some reason, neither Madonna's official channel, nor Warner Bros., have bothered to put up all her videos, so for a few the quality may vary...

EDIT - But thankfully JamesJupiter and A&E have found decent Vimeo links for the very worst, so they should at least all be watchable now.

So - without further waffling - the videos:

Oh lordy.

"It's nice though.....you want it?"

I would have included Paradise (Not For Me) instead of Miles Away. While it was not a single, nor was it even an official video, it is more of a proper video than Miles Away.

Well, it's certainly more interesting than Miles Away, but I have the feeling including it may have opened a different can of worms. These things are always quite subjective, I think.

(That said, apologies to anyone irked by any of the in/exclusions!)

A couple of sets of votes in already! Whee!!
 
Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

Damn it. This is the busiest couple of weeks of my life and I really want to take part in this! What to do....what to do?
 
Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

Bloody hell at 60! I can't miss God's video rate though - some of these are amazing!

Those three groups of 20 do a surprisingly great job of dividing Madge's work into three eras.
 
Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

Voted! It got really tricky when rating them because I started thinking about them relative to each other. That got old real fast and I decided to just plow through, judge them on their own merits and get it done with. Six 10s and plenty of 9s!
 
Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

I voted without even watching a single one of them again - I'm such a proper stan, where's my award?~

Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

The overnight votes have been added to the running tally, and where yesterday there was one video out in front, it's now been caught by another! Things are very tight at the top! Keep the votes coming in - every one matters!
 
Re: Madonna Videos Rate (Voting Closes September 25th!)

I know which two consecutive videos that SHOULD be. Whether it is or not is another question....

Sorry I forgot to make it clear - I was in no way criticising! This is your baby. x

Oh I'm going to have so much fun watching all the videos again! I haven't been listening to Madonna much recently so hopefully this revitalizes things a bit.

No problem! I didn't take it that way anyway.

And keep your votes coming in, lovely people. The lead has changed again today, with one of the front runners sneaking back out in front. 24 different videos have so far received tens, so there's obviously a wide range of favourites out there - and if you don't vote, yours might rate a lowly #60 (mind you, I'd be really worried if anyone's favourite was one of the three or four battling for 'worst video' honours - though, obviously, it takes all sorts etc etc).
