Live to Tell
Jump
Gone
Oh Father
Vogue

Btw, am I the only one that likes Jump so much?

Both Bad Girl and Jump are cool songs. They're easily in my Top 20, but not my Top 10. Bad Girl probably would've been number 11.

Okay, so why don't you guys like I Love New York? Is it the lyrics, or are there other reasons?

I really like "I Love New York," especially the version on "I'm Going to Tell You a Secret."

It's primarily the lyrics, which are just really, really bad. But not only that, it's her delivery of the vocals in the verses. It just makes me cringe - I hate how she's singing it.

The chorus isn't too bad, though. And I like the music. But overall, it falls short of the other songs.

Devil Wouldn't Recognize You was amazing on the Sticky & Sweet tour. I finally got to see her in Detroit last month. She's been my girl crush for over 20 years!

Once again, Phanan says exactly what I wanted to!

Why are you bringing up this again? I read in 2 other articles as well as the blog, one of them was written in Danish so I didn't understand. And also you can hear it on the song. I also said that I believe Bono was not at fault for that because you can sing on a stage thinking that you are singing right in pitch. Then when you listen back you realize that you wasn't at all. I never cracked U2's or Sting's CD'S. Edge said in Mojo that he prefers raw production where you don't get obsessed with searching for perfection. And I read that Sting has recorded a duet with Sheryl Crowe (who I also think has a great voice herself) and these listeners heard it on there. And people on here said that they don't like Anthony Kiedis voice but I thought he sounded ok in Under The Bridge.

But back on topic, I forgot to put Who's That Girl. For some reason this song and Oh Father was left of the Immaculate Collection. They say that Madonna is not known for her lyrics but I think Oh Father has great lyrics. It's about her difficult relationship with her dad.

Oh Father has some of the best lines in a song ever, imo:

Maybe someday
When I look back
I'll be able to say
You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too

That is so true when you think about someone - anyone - who hurt you.

I can relate to 'Oh Father' big time - it's such a full on lyric - so is Proimise To Try -

Little girl dont you forget her face
Laughing away your tears
When she was the one who felt all the pain

Little girl never forget her eyes
Keep them alive inside
I promise to try -- its not the same

Keep your head held high -- ride like the wind
Never look behind, life isnt fair
Thats what you said, so I try not to care

Little girl dont run away so fast
I think you forgot to kiss -- kiss her goodbye

Will she see me cry when I stumble and fall
Does she hear my voice in the night when I call
Wipe away all your tears, its gonna be all right

I fought to be so strong, I guess you knew
I was afraid youd go away, too

Little girl youve got to forget the past
And learn to forgive me
I promise to try -- but it feels like a lie

Dont let memory play games with your mind
Shes a faded smile frozen in time
Im still hanging on -- but Im doing it wrong
Cant kiss her goodbye -- but I promise to try

Those lyrics matched with the images of her in 'Truth Or Dare' lying on her Mum's grave telling her how much she regrets not having the chance to share her success with her just kills me.

Such a simple song - but when you realise she's singing it from the point of view of a 6 year old girl faced with her mother's death and her father's inability to move on it is just so damn powerful. Promise To Try and Oh Father are the moments that Madonna moved away from being a pop star to being an artist IMO.

Seeing it live was the reason it made into my unofficial top five. The area I live in was evacuated because of potential flooding back in the summer of 2006...the day before I was supposed to see the 'Confessions Tour' in NYC.

When the waters receded (without flooding), I traveled on into see the concert, and as Madonna made her appearance that night...it bordered on a religious experience for myself. One of the greatest openings ever...I'll stack it up there with seeing the 'Elevation' tour one month after 9/11.
