What are your top 25 Madonna songs of all time?


Recommended Posts

This is so difficult. I made a top 100 playlist on iTunes and that was piece of cake. Then I narrowed down to 50 and god that was challenging. But trying to choose top 25 is close to impossible. If you guys could, please share your inputs on what 25 Madonna songs are YOUR favorite, NOT what the general public likes. Making a list to please general public is easy, but have you tried to make one of songs YOU like the most?

This is what I decided on so far. Anyone likes/agrees with this list?

1. Like a Prayer

2. You'll See

3. Survival

4. Skin

5. Frozen

6. The Power of Goodbye

7. To Have And Not To Hold

8. Impressive Instant

9. Amazing

10. Love Profusion

11. Nothing Fails

12. Easy Ride

13. Hung Up

14. Forbidden Love

15. Jump

16. Isaac

17. Give it 2 Me

18. Miles Away

19. I'm Addicted

20. Love Spent

21. Living For Love

22. Ghosttown

23. Hold Tight

24. Joan of Arc

25. Rebel Heart

Then, of course, is the remainder 75 of the top 100!

I think it's fantastic that Madonna has such a diverse repertoire and catalogue of songs. When we look at her chart success, we should never overlook the quality of the ones that didn't make it as a single.

How 'Love Spent' was never a single beggars belief!

Thank you all so much for sharing your lists. There are some songs that are present almost in everyone's choice. Yet every list is unique to the person. Very interesting! You really can't put Madonna's music in a box so to speak. She has such a large demographic of different styles of music that everyone can find something that goes with their personal taste. Amazing woman! Truly there is no one else like her! :inlove:
