My Tracklisting For a Double-Disc Madge Compilation

Recommended Posts

why are you all wasting your time with all those playlists? to feel sorry when the real compilation will be released?

Why are you wasting your time posting the same thing in every thread?

Fans are discussing and speculating about a forthcoming release, just as they would for any other Madonna album.

I dont see a point to WB releasing a complete retrospective. GHV3 (or whatever it's called) would be reasonable if it went something like this;

1. Hung Up

2. Miles Away

3. Nothing Fails

4. Get Together

5. Love Profusion

6. Sorry

7. American Life

8. Beat Goes On (Featuring Kanye West)

9. Hollywood

10. Give It 2 Me

11. Jump

12. Die Another Day

13. 4 Minutes (Featuring Justin Timberlake & Timbaland)

14. Across The Sky

15. Triggering (Your Senses)

It would be rather hollow if a retrospective did come out this year as Madonna will make new songs with Live Nation which (hopefully) will be hits and therefore the retrospective will become inadequate. :)

Sorry, but who would buy such a compilation? Even GHV2 underperformed yet that had like 10 big hits. Madonna's singles after GHV2 had limited success (but 2 megahits still) so casual fans won't be looking to pick them up, they'd much prefer Madonna's 25 years of hits. Especially during the days of digital singles, it's easier to pay less than 2 dollars for "Hung Up" & "4 Minutes" instead of buying them among a sea of lesser known singles. I do like the idea of putting "Triggering" on the CD, one of her best outtakes.

I know Madonna fans were spoiled that she could fill a second greatest hits album without any repetition (something her 80s contemporaries never achieved), but it's time to accept that she's gonna release something that overlaps with most of The Immaculate Collectin.

Zephyr Alexxx, you do have a point and I'm sure most fans will be disappointed with the release just like with GHV2, but it's for fun and remember, at least it's still about her music instead of some nonsense debate on her private affairs or her cheeks. ;)

Exactly! lol American Life,Hollywood,Sorry,Give It 2 Me & Love Profusion might have not performed well in the US but they did well in other markets and should be included on a compilation , just because they didnt chart high on Hot 100 doesnt mean much now that the hot 100 relies more on radio play :lmao::rant:

:rant: beside too much push is on the US market its only one country among loads (despite what they may think :lmao: )

This is pretty much what I envision the two disc set being like. Though, I am not sure 20 tracks will fit, because many of her songs go over the 4 min mark. I guess they can edit them down, but some of them cannot be edited down such as "THIS USED TO BE MY PLAYGROUND".

I also think she will leave off "American Pie". She never was into that song until Rupert begged her to do it. It seems she now wishes she didn't cover it. I could be wrong. It was a hit for her in Europe, so I can see why it would be included.

I always question "Hollywood" too. While it did well in some countries, but looking at chart positions, "American Life" the song did significantly better across the globe than "Hollywood", so I would think she would want to include that one instead. But I prefer "Hollywood"... especially Stuart Price mixes.

I think many of us have to remember that the GH's collection represents her hits across the globe, not just one particular country. But in the end, I think the songs that should be included first whether they charted #1 or #10 or #20 are the ones that have made a huge impact on her career since releasing them. For instance, some can argue chartwise "Beautiful Stranger" wasn't a big hit, but I think it was. It was only just in the U.S. it didn't chart well and that was due because it wasn't released as a single. No doubt, if a single was released for that song in the U.S., it would have hit at least the top 5... if not #1. It was a big song for Madonna back in 1999, thanks to the soundtrack it was tied too.

face it, you wont get a good, "satisfied" tracklist by basing it on chart success.

your better off on putting on songs that have importance to M's catalog/history. Just because a song didnt go to number one, doesnt mean that it shouldnt be on the tracklist.

Just get Jive Bunny or Stars on 45 to do a medley, use some outtakes from the H&M ads as artwork and you're done.

Actually, I agree. I guess that is what I was getting at first. The tracklist should be about songs that have had an important impact on her career as a musician. But it should represent what was most popular with fans and radio airplay. For instance, "Rain" didn't chart as high as some of the other bigger hits, but it got a lot of radio airplay and it had longevity. I remember they played the hell out of that song until "I'll Remember" came a long. "I'll Remember" got a lot of radio airplay as well. But of course, it charted better as well.

In any event, I don't think there will be a set list that will satisfy everyone, but I think the above would come close to representing Madonna's career.

But with a title like 'Celebration' for the album, it's possible she could include non-hits like "EveryBody", "Where's The Party" and other songs that fit the theme.

Nice to see that someone else agrees. Everybody is a must, it's her first single, and her first to chart on the Hot Dance/Club chart, which she is well known for dominating, since she is the dancing queen.

If LAP can appear in all its 5 min glory, then so should the equally epic ROL. There's even more edits/fades and video versions too.

Oh I disagree..

Not only didn't I even notice a difference, but that edit was sorely needed, the original was ridiculously long. One of her best. That and the Beautiful Stranger edit which cut the overlong wanky instrumental outro at the end were THE reason to buy GHV2.

Though I never recall that butchered ROL ever being played on the radio. :americanlife:

Agree. Some songs are fine (or even improved) by radio edits. Others really need to be allowed their full potentail. I mean, the Best-of that I'm making has the full-length "Like a prayer" on it (including the outro guitar solo and acapella choir) simply because it needs to be there.

So it appears that between 33-36 hits will be included (plus 2 new songs)

If you look at the weird run times on TIC you have

1. Holiday 4:04 (original 7" mix 3:50)

2. Lucky Star 3:36 (7" mix 3:36)

3. Borderline 3:59 (original 3:56)

4. Like a Virgin 3:11 (3:38)

5. Material Girl 3:53 (4:01)

6. Crazy for You 3:44 (4:04)

7. Into the Groove 4:08 (4:43)

8. Live to Tell 5:16 (album version 5:52, edit 4:38)

9. Papa Don't Preach 4:09 (album version 4:29, edit 3:52)

10. Open Your Heart 3:49 (4:18)

11. La Isla Bonita 3:48 (4:03)

12. Like a Prayer 5:50 (album version 5:41, album edit 5:10, 7" version 5:24, 7" version with fade 5:06)

13. Express Yourself 4:02 (4:30)

14. Cherish 3:52 (4:06)

15. Vogue 5:17 (album version 4:49, 7" version 4:24)

16. Justify My Love 5:00 (q-sound edit 4:34)

17. Rescue Me 5:31 (single mix 4:54)

The whole album had a total track time of 73:34 minutes. Let's hope the new tracks don't take up quite so much room this time. Who knows what'll happen. :dramatic:

This site is rather good btw, handy listing of her discography which lists all her official mixes - http://web-o-rama.net/madonnaremixology/

We have to face the fact that unless they use edits then a lot of songs won't fit.

Anyway, 20 per disc will never happen. I will be very surprised if we get 18 per disc. I tend to think that 17 or 18 for the early stuff and no more than 17 for the latter since her 90's singles even after being edited ran over 4 minutes. In addition, I would think that her #1 hits in the UK and US will most likely be included and that she would avoid having too many ballads slowing the discs. With that in mind (I think 3 ballads per disc would be enough) it COULD look something like this:

Disc One:

1. Holiday

2. Borderline

3. Lucky Star

4. Like A Virgin

5. Material Girl

6. Crazy For You

7. Into The Groove

8. Dress You Up

9. Live To Tell

10. Papa Don't Preach

11. True Blue

12. Open Your Heart

13. La Isla Bonita

14. Who's That Girl

15. Like A Prayer

16. Express Yourself

17. Cherish*

18. This Used To Be My Playground*

* This Used To Be My Playground needs to be included because it was #1 in the US and a sizeable hit everywhere. However, it just didn't fit between Justify My Love and Erotica so I think it would thematically fit better at the end of disc one. Remember that in TIC Lucky Star and Borderline are chronologically reversed probably so the disc can flow better so I don't think this would be too much of a stretch.

Disc Two:

1. Vogue

2. Justify My Love

3. Erotica

4. Secret

5. Take A Bow

6. You Must Love Me or Don't Cry For Me Argentina

7. Frozen

8. Ray Of Light

9. American Pie

10. Music

11. Don't Tell Me

12. Die Another Day

13. Hung Up

14. Sorry

15. 4 Minutes

16. Revolver

17. Celebrate
