  1. Yeah, as an Australian who attended her Brisbane shows, I have yet to see Like a Prayer live and hope she continues to perform it. The irony is that I HAVE seen her perform Take a Bow and Crazy For You, which I know many fans would sacrifice one of their many Like a Prayer performances for. But LAP is one of those immortal, all-time-greats songs and I neeeed to see it live. But my main wish for the new tour is that she comes back to Australia. After being skipped for over two decades, it's never a given that she will tour here.

    Your top albums of 2017

    @madonnaman I think my fave album of his is Cold Roses, from which I finally got to hear several tunes played this year including 'Magnolia Mountain.' Thanks for YOUR reply and I hope you enjoy sinking your teeth into his great body of work!

    Your top albums of 2017

    My favourite musical moment of the year was when a friend texted me to say she'd heard Ryan Adams was playing a secret gig in a small club in my city in an hours time. I immediately got dressed, paid the five dollars cover fee (donated to a cat charity) and heard 2.5 hours of his amazing catalogue with a full band, in a small room. Incredible! As for music releases, I enjoyed new albums by Pink, Miley Cyrus and The Killers, as well as new singles by Selena Gomez. But none of them were earth-shattering, so I think my record highlight this year was delving deeper into the work of Pearl Jam and solo Stevie Nicks.

    Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray: Pre-order now available

    As an Aussie fan whose first live experience of Madonna was on the RHT, this dvd is an important keepsake for me, and something I desperately want to own. I hope it still gets released.

    Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray: RELEASE DATE September 15th

    My Mum caught the broadcast here in Australia and made a point of telling me how wonderful she thought it was, and that it looked like an amazing concert. She's not a huge Madonna fan (leans more towards Adele... oh Mum ) so I took it as a stamp of quality that it held her interest and garnered her admiration.

    Havoc And Bright Lights (2012) - Alanis Morissette

    I enjoyed this album upon release - so many varied topics and themes, with some beautiful tunes. Empathy, Lens and bonus track Permission are my faves. I feel like the mixing lets it down though - very muddy sound and her vocals were captured much better on the previous album. I have been listening to Under Rug Swept again lately and relishing the advice contained within the songs. I never realised how perfectly Surrendering captures "the dance" we all do as we get to know a potential partner, and how it's not a crime to want to hold back for a little self-preservation. And Hands Clean is still the catchiest song about statutory rape ever written! 😮

    The Music Industry is a Joke.

    @jazzyjan your story about training that girl is horrifying! It's hard to put into words, but I feel like the current generation lacks anger and a sense of rebellion, even though with the fucked up state of the world, they arguably need it more than any generation before them. Where are the freethinkers, the artists to challenge the status quo? Everything I'm hearing (Adele, Ed Sheerhan, Taylor Swift) is just comfort music. Art to confirm what you already know, but that won't challenge you or teach you anything. I could accept Beyonce being argued for as an exception, but I'm mostly coming up blank otherwise. You know, people said 90s kids were apathetic, but Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Alanis Morissette and other huge acts at the time sound positively alive and electric in comparison to today's artists. Tove Lo is a new artist I love, but people act like she is shocking and salacious in her songs, when they are completely tame compared to what Liz Phair was doing 25 years ago. As for Madonna comparisons, it just seems like no artist today can evolve past their own "True Blue" phase. Yes they can have hit albums packed with hit songs, but they can't seem to reach deep within the fire and pull out a "Like a Prayer". There's no desire to be bold and risky with an "Erotica", there's no middle finger being thrown at society, ala "American Life". They have nothing profound to say, it's all just navel-gazing at the minutiae of their own lives. Instagram culture in song form.

    Closer - Chainsmokers #1 12 wks!

    I think it's a hit for the same reason Taylor Swift's songs are: there's heaps of lyric detail, so the story sucks you in. In a couple of minutes, you know so much about this couple (stolen mattress from Boulder roommate, shoulder tattoo, a Blink 182 song etc) and their drama. Then, to top it all off, it's really beige, everyday vanilla drama that challenges noone and says nothing new. People eat that shit up!

    Loved these video clips, thanks for sharing and opening my eyes to a switched-on, articulate and awake person.
