SPM

Have y'all ever noticed this in WAITING?

53 posts in this topic

At 5:28, right after saying, "And the next time you want pussy...just looking the mirror, baby," she says, "Here kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty..."

My mind is blown. I always thought she was just crooning or letting out some kind of melodic exhale.

MAKES THIS PERFECT SONG EVEN MORE PERFECT. Am I 25 years late on this or have others not noticed it as well?

:lol:  It is hilarious when you first become aware of it.  I did not know for years either but now always get a chuckle out of it.

WOW I'd somehow never noticed this either. Erotica is such a beautiful late night album.

Isn't it everything!!!???????

 

One of my favorite Madonna tracks, lyrically speaking. And that beat is INSANELY SMOOTH. :inlove:

I still can't seem to hear it. Maybe I need better headphones...

We should have a thread about these things.

I think another one is the Shanti/Ashanti part she sings at the end of To Have And Not To Hold.

I would have never noticed that myself...great observation! :thumbsup: 

She has quite a few other songs too with small details like this. Would actually be an interesting topic to make a list of...

Her singing "Quicker than a ray of liiiiiiiight" after mentioning it in Veni Vidi Vici comes to mind...

At first I thought she was doing a fake MJ style laugh he-he-he-he-he, years later I think I first saw it pointed out here.

That would be a great idea. For me as not a native English speaker it's almost impossible to catch up these. I'm sure there are tons that I'm unaware of.

Um WOW. How the hell have I never noticed this this!!?? I've always thought she was saying "mmm..mmm.mmmm" like "no way", "nah-uh". You've just made me love this song even more...as if I didn't love it enough already.

I remember years ago when the Ray of Light instrumentals leaked and I listen to Shanti/Ashanti and heard that it was M signing the high "Om santi", for some reason unbeknown to me I had assumed it was a sample from some old 70's Bollywood film.

Waiting should have been a single! Such a JAM!

I wonder which song came first, "Waiting" or "Did You Do It?"

The lyrics still drive a sledgehammer through my heart....

 

Well, I know from experience
That if you have to ask for something more than once or twice
It wasn't yours in the first place
And that's hard to accept when you love someone
And you're led to believe in their moment of need
That they want what you want but they don't

Waiting came first, Did You Do It is essentially a remix.

Dre put it together as a joke and tacked it onto the end of the album for the record company listening party and Madonna thought it was hysterical and decided to keep it for reasons only Madonna can explain 😜
