  1. Fucking fantastic. One of her best album covers ever.
  2. Ghosttown is absolutely gorgeous. I love it. Her best vocals since Confessions for sure. Living For Love isn't strong enough for a first single and the vocals are still a bit crow-y. I hope it's just a buzz single. Rebel Heart should still take the lead.
  3. 1) Love Spent (Acoustic) 2) I'm Addicted 3) Beautiful Killer 4) Falling Free 5) Some Girls (William Orbit Remix)
  4. I thought it was "their emission's high". You've just corrected me! Greta Garbo, Ann Monroe Grace Kelly, Hollow Chin Lauren Kaplan, Latitude Ladies with some attitude! Yeah, you lucked on out When we're scared and cold Left for quasing! I fell in love with some Pedro A hairline breathes the stinking hole A medal that I thought was gold I see you through the smoky ebb Can you feel the weight of my step?
  5. I live in Australia and heard Turn Up The Radio at the mall last week. Was surprised to be hearing something so recent!
  6. I don't mind what direction M takes next or who she works with, but I hope she spends a bit more time working on the album itself. Hard Candy and MDNA are both good, but some of the songs sound half-finished and quite tinny. The live versions are so much better and I wish they'd been on the albums instead.
  7. I often hear TAB at the local supermarket. Seems to be a favourite along with (ironically) 4 Minutes! I like both songs, but they'd work better with live instrumentals instead. TAB with some violins and 4M with a marching bagpipe band. Hah!
  8. It's in my Top 5 M albums. Confessions>Like a Prayer>Ray of Light>Bedtime Stories>MDNA.
  9. I was born in 1985 and Madonna has always been welcome in my household. My Mum owed the True Blue album because she loved Live To Tell, and my older sister had the Like a Virgin album and used to dress like M with the jelly bracelets and all that stuff. But I never knew much about Madonna herself and my first real "experience" came from watching the Frozen video. It was newly released and me and my sister were standing in a Blockbuster video store when it came on the television. We both stood there in awe. I bought Ray of Light, Music, and GHV2 over the next few years but I never explored beyond that. I was going through a really shit time and music just faded out of my life in general. Her performance at Live 8 blew me away and I downloaded the Like a Prayer song, because I just loved it so much. But that was it. In 2011, I saw a copy of Celebration in my local library, so I decided to check it out. I was so surprised that songs like Into The Groove belonged to M, because I honestly had no idea. The variety in her music just blew me away and I finally became a "loon". I've since bought her entire back catalogue and reading this forum has become a daily ritual. Following the MDNA era has been so much fun. Honestly, the length and scope of Madonna's career is just overwhelming. I can't believe she's been at it for thirty years. But what really puts me in awe is watching her live performances: skipping from Vogue at The Girlie Show through to the MDNA version really brings home just how incredible she is. You ask how "new" fans feel about M? Well, I always wonder how the fans who were there at the beginning must feel. Did you honestly think she'd still be going strong in thirty years? What was it like seeing the Like a Prayer video for the first time? Or hearing the change in her voice for Ray of Light? Exploding from a disco ball? I'm really quite jealous that you've watched it all play out era by era.
  10. I almost couldn't believe it when I saw the pictures. Her best look in years!
  11. All the major shopping malls in my area play Madonna. I wonder if that's the station they use? In the last few months, I've heard: 4 Minutes (the most played), Jump, Take a Bow, Borderline, Give it 2 Me, Revolver (would you believe it?), Burning Up, Express Yourself (LAP version).
  12. Have you ever? Ever felt like this? Where strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
  13. Wikipedia: "A derogatory term, it was controversially ruled no longer offensive in 2006 by the Australian Advertising Standards Board and in 2010 by the New Zealand Broadcasting Standards Authority. Despite these changing views, many British people or those of British origin consider the expression offensive or racist." Honestly, I never thought "pom" was that bad. I grew up in England, but I've spent more than half my life in Australia and I always take it in good spirit.
