  1. Songs that kept M from hitting #1's in the UK

    Ray of Light was supposed to have beaten Under the Bridge to #1. If I remember correctly, raw sales were higher by chart rules at the time meant you could only apply sales for a maximum of three formats, and warners bizarrely decided to exclude one of the three formats on sale that week for another (a vinyl, I think) on sale two weeks later.
  2. The BOXSCORE thread [part 1]

    Sticky and Sweet was a perfect storm of factors - riding high of 4 Minutes/Hard Candy, her first stadium tour in yonks, her return to South America, the global economy being stronger then (particularly in Europe(. Not even Beyonce, Gaga, Celine or Cher (with their 100+, 200+ dates tours) came close to it. Same thing with U2... the 360 Tour was built on The Claw gimmick. They were unique tours with unique circumstances, and expecting M and U2 to repeat that in 2015 is ridiculous. For an arena tour in 2015, RHT is performingly excellently. More importantly, she's rekindling the love for her live performances from the general public, which places her well for her next tour. The only acts outperforming her are Taylor Swift and One Direction, and they are arguably where she was at in 2008. Thirty, maybe even 20 years from now, with inflation, someone will come along and break S&S's record. It's inevitable. If you're not going to have histronics on that in the future, why wail about it now? Just enjoy the tour for the awesome spectacle that it is, and be glad she's still on top of her game.
  3. If she's doing Iceland, she might as well do the Faroe Islands
  4. Exploring new markets is great and all, but the economics of a Madonna tour mean that only cities with a certain level of economic purchasing power can support her tour. In Asia, of the places that she hasn't toured yet, that would be Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Mumbai. Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta, maybe, but the religious factor would prevent that. In Africa, it would only be Cape Town or Johannesburg, and maybe Cairo. In South America, it would be her usual markets. Guyana and Haiti are too laughable to even consider seriously.
  5. Guyana? Madagascar? Mauritius? That is certainly not happening!

    Considering that the Euro is weaker against the US$ this time round, it is good! She should hit US$ 120 million by the time she finished Europe, US and Mexico.
  7. Only 3 Madonna Albums.

    Like A Prayer - A genre-spanning coronation of the Queen Bedtime Stories - Underrated, lush and silky-smooth Ray of Light - The album that introduced me to her and my desert island disc
  8. The BOXSCORE thread [part 1]

    What I'd like to know is if the final gross for the date is based on the technical sell-out number of tickets sold, or the actual number of tickets sold. ie. if the technical sell-out number the MGS dates was 28,371 over two nights, but say she actually sold 30,000 tickets... if the final gross of US$ 5.2 million tied to 28,371 or 30,000 tickets?
  9. Vancouver - Oct 14 - Rogers Arena

    She did Secret?! OMG!
  10. Tier 1 - Iconic Hung Up - Her last video that was seared into public consciousness. Tier 2 - Great Living For Love - Dark, moody and awesome Bitch I'm Madonna - Fun, flirty and fabulous. Love the long takes. Give Me All Your Luvin' - The song is subpar, but the video is fantastic. Love the campy, 50s musical feel to it. Girl Gone Wild - Subpar song, super stylish video Tier 3 - Good Ghosttown - Nicely shot, but nothing that memorable. Madonna the Victorian Vampire Slayer was a great look though. Get Together - I love the animation. My acid trips look like this. Tier 4 - Okay 4 Minutes - Nice concept but for a song about urgency, it feels surprisingly torpid. And that cream-coloured corset/bustier was UGLY Turn Up The Radio - She hardly ever does location videos so it's nice to see her outdoors. Average song, average video. Sorry - Jamie King should not direct videos. In fact, Jamie King should stay far, far away from Madonna. Tier 5 - Lazy Give It 2 Me - Could have been and should have been a boxing-themed video instead of a fashion shoot rehash Jump - The parkour moves were cool, but she looks like she spent all of 5 minutes doing her bit Celebration - Paint-by-numbers. It would work for, say, Alesha Dixon, but not Madonna. Tier 6 - This Exists? Miles Away - Urgh
  11. Heart for her album. Rebel for non-album collaborations. Get Kanye, Diplo, Disclosure, Rihanna and other current acts to feature her on their songs. Isn't she supposed to have a song on Kanye's new album?
  12. 1. Ray of Light 2. Bedtime Stories 3. Like A Prayer 4. Erotica 5. Rebel Heart 6. Confessions on a Dance Floor 7. Music 8. Madonna 9. American Life 10. True Blue 11. Like a Virgin 12. Hard Candy 13. MDNA The top 3 are interchangeable depending on my mood. RH, as great as it is, doesn't feel quite as 'tight' or as 'evocative' as the top 4.
  13. Song of the Week 10/11/14 : YOU'LL SEE

    She performed this on selected US dates on the Drowned World Tour and it was glorious!
  14. Where on earth did those new dates come from? And why Córdoba, and not Buenos Aires? Sounds like wishful thinking to me. But on the off chance that it's real, the only April date so far is New Delhi. Which means she could possible add other Asian dates like Mumbai, Singapore, Seoul and a couple of other Japan shows!
