M Lyrics That Sums Up Each Era

Recommended Posts

Guest   
Guest

I'm currently putting together a photography book for my lovely new coffee table. It's 12x12 (LP size) and it's focusing on her discography. I'll have front and back pics of each of her albums.

Then, I'm also including a picture of her, from each era, next to the respective album.

And, with the 'era specific' picture, I'd like to include a caption. It has to be a lyric from an album. I keep going back and forth with my ideas and I can't settle on which lyric goes best.

For example.... for the True Blue era I have used "I have a tale to tell..."

I want short, memorable, reflective lyrics to describe each era. What lyrics do you like best? Do you like what I've picked for True Blue? Would you have picked something different?

The only ones I've settled on are the Music and TB eras.

For Music I picked "Many miles, many roads I have traveled..."

What lyrics have I missed? Give me your opinions. Rebel Heart is impossible for me. I cannot decide on which lyric to use, so I need lots of opinions here. I've come with.

"Shine your light like a beautiful star..."

"I'll be your fire when the lights go out..."

Thanks all.

"I'm not afraid to say I hear a different beat..." for the LAV era? I've always loved that one and it's definitely very true about her! :)

What a beautiful idea. for the first album I would choose "I'm not afraid I have no shame I'm on fire " from Burning Up or some line from Holiday,

Love this Webo Girl

Here are some suggestions of lyrics that I personally love

You try to criticise my drive, if I lose I don't feel paralysed - Over and Over

No risk, no glory - Survival

Stong inside but you don't know it - What it feels like for a girl

Creation comes when you learn to say no - The Power of goodbye

I'll stand on my own - You'll see

Through the darkness somehow I survived - Rebel Heart

MADONNA

I'm not the same

I have no shame

I'm on fire

LAV

Let me cover you with velvet kisses

I'll create a look that's made for you

TB

No more sadness

I kiss it goodbye

The sun is bursting

Right out of the sky

I've searched the whole world

For someone like you

LAP

Life is a mystery

Everyone must stand alone

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home

EROTICA

My name is Dita

I'll be your mistress tonight

BS

I'm not your bitch

Don't hang your shit on me

ROL

And I feel

Like I just got home

MUSIC

You're the one I've been waiting for

I don't even know your name

AL

It's no good when your misunderstood

Why should I care what the world thinks of me

Won't let a stranger give me a social disease

COADF

Let's forget your life

Forget your problems

Administration

Bills

And loans

Come with me

HC

Don't stop me now

Don't need to catch my breath

I can go on and on and on

MDNA

Feels like a drug

And I can't get enough

And it fits like a glove

I'm addicted to your love

RH

Always been a rebel

Overcoming obstacles

I can't give you perfect

But I can give you forever

What a fantastic project you've embarked on!

For Rebel Heart, there are a lot of good ones. I like this one in particular:

"I won't apologize for being myself" - Beautiful Scars

So many great lyrics from Madonna over the years. Another one I love from the Rebel Heart album is this gem from Borrowed time.

" So let's live each moment like our time is only borrowed"

Unlike the others I'll do anything, I'm not the same I have no shame (Burning Up)

who am I, to decide what should be done? (WOAM)

I've had to work much harder than this, for something I want, don't try to resist me (OYH)

do what you like, say what you feel, you know exactly who you are (BGO), don't stop me know, no need to catch my breath, I can go on and on and on (GITM)

happiness lies in your own hand, it took me much to long, to understand, how this could be (Secret)

forgot exactly what I asked for, wanted it so badly, running rushing back for more, I suffered fools, so gladly, and now I find, I've changed my mind (DW)

turn to stone, lose my faith, I'll be gone before it happens (Gone), tell me everything I'm not, but please don't tell me to stop (DTM)

now I can tell you the place that I belong, I know it won't last long, the lights they will turn down (LIWB)

I wonder if I'll ever know, where my place is, where my face is (SG)

It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch, but sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is (so many good ones that work for Rebel Heart)

What a cool project. Hmmm... this is tricky but I'll try to contribute a few ideas.

Bedtimes Stories: "Express yourself, don't repress yourself"

Hard Candy: "Dancing makes me feel beautiful"

MDNA: "There's only one Queen, and that's Madonna" or "I'm gonna be okay, I don't care what the people say"

What a fantastic project you've embarked on!

For Rebel Heart, there are a lot of good ones. I like this one in particular:

"I won't apologize for being myself" - Beautiful Scars

I like this one for RH too!
