Why Wasn't "Heaven" and "Queen" on The Final?!!! I'm beyond Baffled!!!

Recommended Posts

As much as I adore the song, it's almost a shame Queen leaked. Could you imagine how utterly gasp inducing if that was the last song on the final Madonna album? It would multiply it's haunting vibe by a million. Idk if Madonna would allow it (lol) but what a way for the eternal queen of pop to end her final album.

Queen has to see the light in some shape or form, it is beautiful. Heaven sounds promising, but needs some work.

Heaven just isn't finished. There's definately loads of potential there but it's just not completed enough to be on the album. Queen on the other hand sounds finished mastered and completed.

I love Heaven. With some more polished and finished production, it would be amazing. Just seems to need some extra oomph as sounds like a demo ( which it is of course ) Great song though and would love to hear a completed version.

Queen is my second most played song from Rebel Heart era. it would be a great end to the album.

Queen would make such a dramatic end to a concert, Madonna being killed onstage and being carried off in a coffin,as the male voice boomed out "May God bless you all!". Would be a bit of a bummer though!

Agreed, Janelle! "Heaven" is haunting, yet lovely. Would need a little development to be a final version, but the raw material is solid.

:ohmy:

My first reaction to this idea was sheer horror. Then, I thought ... Wow, that would really be different for her. She tends to like to send people out in a joyful, unified kind of mood. BUT THEN, I thought ... she could do something very sad theatrical like that -- but follow up with her resurrection for the ENCORE! :laugh:

Come to think of it ... "Lament" was a wonderful moment on RIT, with fantastic vocal delivery (and it was one of her favorite moments, she said, because she got sit/rest on stage) ... but it seemed strange (after having seen the "Die Another Day" video with the scary moment of thinking she may have been executed, then seeing her magical escape) that there was very little pyrotechnics and no death-defying miracle. The electric chair just lowered below the stage. It seemed kind of odd in the staging -- but I accepted it because 1.) seeing Madonna 'die' on stage (even for pretend) would be too disturbing and 2.) the beauty of "Lament" in her performance didn't need any extra staging theatricality. Curious as to whether anyone else ever had any quizzical puzzlement over the electric chair on stage for RIT, though. Haven't thought about this for a LONG while -- but I remember wondering about it a little bit at the time.

Trust No Bitch and Queen are the only demos I really miss a lot on the final track list - but then again they sound like mastered versions/I love them just the way they are.

QUEEN is definitely outtake material so I understand but HEAVEN is fantastic and is full on album material - however, I can understand why it's not on the album because it doesn't fit the vibe of the record really. It would have worked maybe on Music or Ray of Light or even MDNA but not Rebel Heart.

What's the deal with "Queen"? I remember someone on here saying it wasn't actually recorded during the RH sessions? I find that hard to believe, since it doesn't sound like it fits with any other era, but sonically and lyrically it's right in line with what she did with RH. But it's also not listed on the Wikipedia page of Madonna's unreleased songs. All of the other demos are included in the list of leaks.

Any clue?

I'm even more baffled why Never Let you Go was not included. At least Beautiful Scars and Borrowed Time made the Super Deluxe, although they should have made the regular version.

It was meant to be on Rebel Heart. Her website listed it as part of the super deluxe track listing for like 3 months until it was finally updated in June

Queen is awesome, sonically, artistically - and VOCALLY on point. Heaven, for me takes some getting used to but I can understand the appeal.

"Heaven" is one of the best Madonna songs from the past 15 years.

I'm sure Heaven will be released, she cannot just leave this song and move on to another EDM DJ for her next album... Tears of a clown is what make me think about it, she obviously into american life ans ray of light, Heaven is the perfect first track for a new musical era

Queen came with the very first leak of the official tracks, so it looks like it was planned on the album

I still find it so weird that Madonna and The-Dream only did one song together? I would love an alternate version of Best Night produced by him

Queen is so good. I love its dramatic tune.

It could easily be a final song of this tour.

Sad this beautiful piece of art didnt make it to the album or to an movie soundtrack
