  1. Still makes Tour 11 absolute shit.
  2. “Another Suitcase in Anothet Hall?” An acoustic “Sky Fits Heaven?” But ... a blanket ban on “LAP,” “Music,” “Holiday,” “LIB,” and “LAV?” Either this thread is an extended joke that I’m not getting or y’all are writing the worst fucking set list in history.

    Is Girlie Show her best ever?

    A thousand times YES to this. I'd love for her to strip back her next tour to the bare essentials. A good band, a good setlist, an attitude and a spotlight is all she needs to command an entire stadium full of people. Who's that Girl Tour 2.0 -- that's my dream.

    I'm a firm believer in "death of the author," and I think it applies to all art -- not just literature. Authorial intent just doesn't have to anything to do with interpretation. I'm not into twinks, but this is a ridiculous and needlessly mean-spirited comment.

    I always thought Troye was OK -- maybe a bit overrated by the YouTube tweens. "Wild" came along and I thought "OK, he's pretty good. But the stuff he's released from this upcoming album is flat-out brilliant. "My My My" was very good, "The Good Side" was fantastic, and now "Bloom." I haven't been this excited for an album ages. August can't come soon enough.

    Troye said that it's about giving up your anal V-card for someone special. He even launched the song with the hashtag #bopsaboutbottoming. But everyone's interpretation is valid, of course.

    Add one song: VT setlist

    My pick: Dress You Up Holiday Into the Groove Everybody Angel Gambler Borderline Think of Me Lucky Star Crazy for You Over and Over Burning Up Like a Virgin Material Girl God, I love "Think of Me." It has smash hit written all over it, tbh. Could have been a megahit just like "Borderline" and "Lucky Star" if she didn't have "LAV" already on tap and just SCREAMED for a live performance.

    Add one song: VT setlist

    I'm bored. We're getting no news about the album, there're no leaks, and I'm dying for some new Madonna -- So let's play a game: It's 1985. Madonna is a newly-minted superstar with two hit albums -- the second of which is a worldwide smash -- and more than a half dozen hit singles getting wall-to-wall play on radio and MTV. She's finishing rehearsals for her first-ever concert tour and she thinks the setlist needs ONE more song to round out the show. What song do you add? And where does it go? Here's the actual VT setlist for anyone who needs a quick reminder: Dress You Up Holiday Into the Groove Everybody Angel Gambler Borderline Lucky Star Crazy for You Over and Over Burning Up Like a Virgin Material Girl

    I'm kind of stunned no one's posted this yet: Love this song. Love that there's a pop song about bottoming that's gonna smash. Love the looks in this video. Love the "Vogue" homage: I thought this guy was OK early on, and his stuff got pretty good around "Wild," but this new song and video are spectacular. I'm becoming a super fan.

    For all of you who saw Madonna live, close up...

    Saw her up close in both RIT (front and center stage -- amazing tickets) and RHT (right in front of the cross stage, so she was directly in front of me during the runway performances). Can barely even remember RIT it was so incredible. I was jumping up and down and screaming and just acting a damn fool cuz she was right there! and must have caught her attention cuz QUEEN POINTED RIGHT AT ME DURING "NOBODY KNOWS ME" AND I DAMN NEAR FAINTED. For real, though, I think I almost fainted. I don't really remember what happened next. I know that I stopped jumping and just stood there, looking at her as she looked at me. My jaw must have dropped or something. Everything afterwards is kind of fuzzy (seriously, I think I may have been on the verge of fainting) and next thing I remember is her conveyer belting over to the side platform that raised up. Remains the greatest Madonna concert-going experience of my life. Only thing that could ever top is if I get to touch her hand. Remember thinking how FABULOUS she looked in RHT -- especially during the rockabilly set. She was so small and gorgeous up close. Loved her makeup on that tour.

    MDNA or Rebel Heart Tour?

    This is the greatest response +10000 🤣

    Is Girlie Show her best ever?

    Was drinking (way too much) wine and watching a random YouTube video where someone visited Australia said "G'day" and so obviously I recalled ICONIC moment. Your faves could never. Sorry to step on this flop thread, but I blame the wine. Can we appreciate the Girlie Show -- the first step in the Queen's long comeback from "Erotica"/"Sex" backlash -- and her greatest tour ever, musically speaking? The band. The voice. The PERCUSSION. The Omar. (I swear to god that for YEARS, I used to say "Give me some kick, baby" whenever I wanted someone to take something to the next level -- as if that meant ANYTHING to anyone who's not a Madonna fan. God, I'm just such a queen sometimes 🤣) God, if any tour demanded a live album, it was this one.
