  1. Patrick Leonard thread

    Agree sadly. I was hoping he would give us some personal piano versions of his Madonna songs. I can't say I'm much interested in this other kind of twist on their work.
  2. I remember he got a bit funny with fans who kept asking for Madonna to do "Gambler" in the S&S tour request section. Told them to stop asking at shows because it "wasn't' gonna happen".
  3. That's very well written. I like it. How in hell Guy Oseary and/or Madonna can dismiss something like that would be beyond comprehension! So, fingers crossed they won't. :-)

    100% agree!!!!! (Y) (Y)

    I'm also not keen on the idea of other vocalists. I have to say I am not a fan of the version of Like a Prayer he put on YouTube last year featuring Dana Williams. I would like him to stick to instrumentals for all the songs we already have featuring Madonna. The unreleased demos - I can handle hearing them for the first time with someone else singing! I suppose in the way that we originally had Donna Delory, Marilyn Martin, Nick Kamen etc. singing certain Madonna songs. Never anywhere NEAR what they would have been with Madonna - but definitely worthwhile

    He has mentioned using other people's vocals on this new record of Madonna songs he is working on. I'm very very intrigued by it all! I suggested in a comment on his post, that perhaps he can include songs we never got from Madonna herself (such as "Angels with Dirty Faces" - LAP demo). I wasn't sure of the legalities - but maybe he can produce his own versions of those for this record like he is doing with all the other songs. Would be possibly the only way we might ever hear what these unreleased songs are like!
  7. Yes that's very true @Jazzy Jan And she surprised me greatly when she attended that Truth or Dare anniversary screening in New York. Sometimes I do have hope.
  8. P.S. I asked Guy in person in 2009 if there was any chance we could get the 2009 S&S Tour changes / extra songs released in any way (even online via ICON or YouTube or something). He expressed dismay at my request - told me S&S 2008 was soon to be released.
  9. Or what about - suggest the ENTIRE proceeds from a reissue / deluxe / re-release campaign goes to Raising Malawi? She may not care about her past work or what the "fans" ask for - but she cares about Raising Malawi. used to think - I'd donate a small fortune to her charity for the likes of some never-seen tour WTG or BA tour footage.
  10. Isn't the problem Madonna herself? She is not interested. It's a shame for the likes of me and all the others who dream of the past work being revisited and celebrated, but unless she has a change of heart, we are fucked! The focus is on cold hard cash these days - whether it's MDNA Skin or touring or whatever. When cashing in on the back catalogue becomes a seriously lucrative proposition then we might get progress. Until then - dream on, I'm afraid.
  11. Starrah has had a hand in some of my favourite pop songs of the last year or so. I felt same about Avicii and Diplo when I heard she was working with them a few years ago - and I liked the results of their work with Madonna and there's a good chance I will like what she is up to now. However, as with the RH music, I would be cautious about Madonna getting any major mainstream success out of this, no matter how good it is (or whether or not Cardi B guest raps). She will have modest commercial success with this, I predict. And - in a way, her new music will almost be a side-show. Cos - we already know that the "album" is now mainly the vehicle to sell the tour. That's how it works. Once the album is out, the big tour announcement will come and the push to sell tickets is the main focus. That's where ALL the big money is for Madonna. And the tour - it will sink or swim depending on how much or little Madonna embraces her 80s and 90s work! The songs from this new album will not fill the arenas or stadiums worldwide, The tickets will sell off the back of Madonna's name (her fame and her back catalogue) and when she performs the new songs in the show, I might like them and many on here might like them - but the masses in the arena will be twitching and waiting for "Into the Groove" or "Papa Don't Preach" to start.
  12. Barcelona Gold version is actually a unique edit of the Short Version! (just to complicate things)

    Absolutely hit the nail on the head IMO. Madonna goes in a different direction than this mostly and fair play to her - she is an artist and knows what she wants, what she feels etc. She doesn't want that - I think... But then she surprises - like Masterpiece. AND... she is quite often *all* about the money. So maybe if there was enough money in it - she'd go that way again.

    This is so awesome! I loved reading what you just wrote. I just watched / listened to "The Look of Love". OMG it was gorgeous. What a beautiful beautiful song that is / was. Takes me back to 1987.
  15. Songs Covered By Madonna

    "Do Re Mi" from "The Sound of Music" on tour in Brisbane last year: Also she did acapella a couple of lines from "Who Let The Dogs Out" at one of her "Up For Grabs" play performances in June 2002 which I was at! (no video I'm afraid!).
