Madonna has a whopping six songs that just missed that #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Which one was most deserving of that coveted spot?

SPM,  I simply can't choose.   All of them should have been number 1 and all are superior to the songs that stopped them from reaching the top.  Although I do confess to loving Martika's Toy Soldiers.  These Madonna songs are well loved and known though.  All deserved number 1 Status.

Bravo Jazzy! On point @ usual! With all due respect to these respective artists who nipped the Queen for the #1 spot... Madonna's discography is superior to many of them especially when it comes to lyrical quality.

What's mind-boggling when factoring her U.K. Top 5 hits that just missed #1 conceivably Madonna could have banked an astounding 20 #1 hits!

Utmost respect to U.K import Phil Collins @ well @ the phenomenonal Janet and Michael Jackson respectively.

Will venture to say Madonna's 12 # 1's are even more impressive when you take into consideration her fierce level of competition throughout her career especially those early years.

All of them, really . but I suppose Material Girl and Express Yourself moreso because of their iconic status.

All of them! But if I had to choose one it would have to be "Express Yourself". Not only is it an iconic song but it's such an anthem for not only women but also the gay community. It was my gay anthem when I was 16. It not only taught me to express myself but to accept and take pride in who I am.

Voted for Frozen but all of them deserved to be number 1, I didn't know all these where so close to achieving the number 1 spot.

All of them, but Express Yourself and Frozen especially. I think CAC would've been a #1 had she made a video for it.

All of them should have reached #1 but my vote goes to Causing a Commotion because it was blocked by that annoying Bad song :wacko:

Who is that K ci Jo-Jo shit anyway?? I always thought she was blocked by Celine Dion, I made my peace with that cause that song was extremely massive. Now I come here and read about some weird one hit stuff blocking Frozen??? Seriosly...

That's so sweet, CaC is such an amazing song, it's my favorite performance on the BA show tbh. So cocky, funny and rough.

Well, for me a number 1 or 2 is just a number but, if I had to vote I would say "Causing a commotion", "Cherish" or "I'll remember".

If you ask to the general public which Madonna songs were number 1 hits most of the people would say "Material girl", "Express yourself" or "Frozen" (with other real number 1 hits, of course) so, at least these three didn't chart the number 1 but they did on people's mind
