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

I have a playlist on my ipod called Madonna 101...that only 101 songs are allowed on it...and with the advent of the leaked Demos from Rebel Heart, I have to toss some old songs off the list like Bad Girl, Love Profusion, and One More Chance to make room for them. I guess these three are not going to be in my Top 25... :laugh:

Unquestionably her BEST album track for me!

Yes it is, but her vocals are too filtered.

I'm gonna compile a list of 25 top songs based on all of your lists combined. Just because I have no life. :laugh: But I'll do it tomorrow.

Tentatively (as in only for the next 10 minutes lol) and in absolutely no order of any kind:

Drowned World/Substitute for Love

The Power of Goodbye

Ray of Light

Don’t Tell Me

Vogue

Like a Prayer

Express Yourself

Take a Bow

La Isla Bonita

To Have and Not to Hold

Nothing Fails

Get Together

Rain

Erotica

Sanctuary

Forbidden Love (Bedtime Stories)

Forbidden Love (Confessions)

Mer Girl

Love Spent

Music

Borderline

Dress You Up

Human Nature

Waiting

Heartbeat

I didn’t include anything from Rebel Heart because it’s too soon to tell and this was hard enough as it is.
