I've just spent four and a half hours listening to Madonna.
I really wish she’d gotten Groove Armada to remix at least one of the other Music singles. I feel like they could have put together a great downtempo version of What It Feels Like For A Girl.
Why is the Immaculate Collection in the UK iTunes top 10? Not that I'm complaining!
Greatest Hits albums are being featured and reduced (Most of their chart is made up of Greatest Hits) It’s always sold well, quite rightly so.
I love that this has made it onto her Wiki page:
"On April 30, 2020, Bedtime Stories topped the US iTunes albums chart, more than 25 years after its initial release."
M was at Steven Klein’s Zoom birthday party tonight
Suzanne Bartsch and Joey Arias <3 Legends!
They remixed Don’t Tell Me, but it’s never been released.
Andy Cato spoke about their Music remix recently on Roisin Murphy’s podcast. He said they put a huge amount of work into that remix, but the label wasn’t too impressed apparently.
Me at 12:30pm every day:
The Madame X show we went to genuinely feels like the last great thing I did before the world turned upside down.
On another note I’m listening to a random remix of Voices and only just appreciating what a great song it is.
I’ve had American Life and Bedtime Stories on repeat for about a week now. Sublime collections.
The title track of the latter in particular has really taken a hold over me. I love this performance of it so much.
I always felt it would have suited The Confessions Tour with a slightly dancier / beefier remix. I’m sure Stuart Price could have done wonders with it.
The good sis Stuart upgraded the already excellent Orbital Mix for Re-Invention, she deserves her kudos.
Can you imagine throwing together this transcendent performance for an awards show, only for it to never be used again? Her mind.
It was supposed to be a preview of what she had planned for the tour, ironically.
Bedtime Story (my most played Madonna song for YEARS and responsible for so much of what music interests me now) getting one iconic performance, one incredible interlude and two gorgeous videos a decade apart... she’s an icon, she’s a legend and she is the moment. Come on now.
And much as I stan Björk, her purported apathy towards her role in the song always rang untrue, considering she pulled a bit of a Prince-post-Sinead and essentially released TWO different (not as good) versions of “her song” the year after. Salty queen.
This is how I feel, the Madame X Tour and my birthday were the last good times, I’ve decided January and February were just an extension of 2019.
Björk always seemed pressed that... Madonna dared to co-write on a song that would eventually be hers rather than just taking the gift of a song written by Björk. Okay sis.
Yeah I’m a bit like “Why??” when she made a point of doing the song as a favour to her friend and not for Madonna.
I adore virtually everything B touches, but there's so much to unpack in her working relationships with women. They form her choirs and bands latterly, but her producers and main collaborators are almost always men. Sure that's not uncommon in pop, but I imagine she and M would butt heads in person like crazy. They're both alpha, both voraciously driven creatives, both competitive.
