Madonna

What we want: Deluxe Boxsets, CDs, Vinyl albums, 12" and 7"' reissues, the whole shebang.

What we'll get: Deluxe versions (2 extra tracks) on Streaming only.
Considering we are already getting items like the Erotica picture disc and the new Everybody 12" I am hopeful that we will get some interesting things in this campaign. I don´t have that much hope for lots of unreleased stuff though, but you never know.
 
I'd love a singles boxset for each era. All the 7" Edits/Mixes, 12" Mixes, Instrumentals, Club Mixes/Edits, and B-Sides.

I would love all of this but I don't think it's gonna happen... How many discs of Erotica or ROL or Music ? 8 - 9 discs ? And how many vinyls ? 15 ? And if you add a dvd with videos and live performances the boxset is getting too big! I say it again: I would love this, but it's not that likely to happen.
 
I think what has been done with the Prince albums is pretty great, with super deluxe CD and vinyl boxes that include loads of extras.

On top of that I would love a 12", 7" and CD box sets of singles for each individual album. That would mean that extra mixes and edits that don´t fit on the regular box could be included on those.

Just don´t do the dreadful digital/streaming-only bonus tracks!
 
I think a proper Madonna singles set would be amazing - and needed. But I would also want a CD version, like the Bananarama one or Girls Aloud.

And I would love a Blu-Ray of Madonna's videos remastered. I know video anthologies by way of physical media are pretty much a relic but this is Madonna we're talking about. We really need a Blu-Ray of her videos with commentary, liner notes, etc.

A Blu-Ray set of her videos and select performances (and full length tours – looking at you, Confessions) would be great, as long as they can manage to find better sources than what have been used for the 4K upscales on her YouTube channel. They really should work with fans on some of this stuff to ensure quality. Interlaced Geek did an amazing remaster of her "Vogue" VMA performance that should have been put up on her channel for the anniversary.

I would love a Madonna commentary on all her videos, but it just doesn't seem her... she seems a person who gets bored quite quickly, can't see her spending hours commenting her videos. At least, it would take some sessions. But it would be so interesting. Her memories and her wit !

Something like what Mariah just did for "Honey" would be cute. Just short featurettes for maybe not all her videos, but for the most popular ones/her favorites

If she could do a commentary in the style of the recent Hung Up one with Stuart Price I’d be very happy, I just love how serious and informative, it was so much better than those brief side comments we got during that Sirius Madonna Madame X week, where she didn’t tell us anything about most of the songs we’d love to know more about.
 
To this day, does anyone know what the male singer in Ciao Bella is saying? Specifically, is there a translation? I've never found one and I've only seen vague explanations of what the song might be about.



"Bella Ciao" is a famous antifascist song. As a mass movement, fascism preys on the fears and hopelessness of people to turn them into supporters of extreme-right political projects centered around the violent subordination and extermination of people considered "enemies" or "inferior".

As the closer of Madame X, an album thematically centered around domination and oppression – and also rebellion – the free-flowing vibe of this song feels like a breath of fresh air, a moment of overcoming despair and feeling hope again.

The singer is Kimi Djabaté and the language sung is African Creole. I was able to find an Italian translation of his parts which I translated into English. Certainly something is lost on translation but it seems to deal with the history of imperialism and colonialism in Africa.

Sometimes...
It fills up day by day
What do you say?
He was bored
To collect
German man
They use man
And stunned
I'm not careful
God fired
What do you say?
What guys
--
And I read it well
And your every mother
And I read it well
And your every mother
And your every mother
And your every mother
Your mother reads
I don't hesitate
And there she said
And your every mother
And that's not all
--
And that's not all
And your every mother
And that's not all
And your every mother
Or as she wanted as she wanted Allah
And just like me
Pretty
The bad guys hurt
Or move there Allah
How and how
As before Allah
And your every mother
And every ray
And your every mother
--
Or mom read
I don't hesitate
And every mulatto life
Made in the prison bathroom
And everyone is like mom
Everyone gives tomorrow
And everyone is like mom
Leave your girlfriend
And mom reads

Ooooh oooh
How is your girlfriend
She could die later
He might die later

Oooh how
Like lightning
--
With my mom and many
It hurts my mom
That's my wall
It came as it did
In battle Africa
In battle
She knew each other
