Beautiful Killer

Timbaland shares untold stories behind songs with Madonna, etc.

Recommended Posts

Erotica is hot. Hard Candy has some cool and awesome moments - but never was a "hot" album - no matter how hot it was in the recording studio. It was a commercial Timberland construct without much soul to produce hits. It didn't work as it was planned. But I'm grateful for Miles Away.

If we go there...i'd love to see what "a like a prayer era madonna" in 1989 would think if someone told her that in 2015 she's release the "bitch i'm madonna" song as a single. I think she'd kill her career in 1989, LOL

 

Not sure what Madonna of 1989 would've said but Madonna of 1998 didn't want to be making pop music videos and "stomping" around MSG at age 50.....she wanted to be a movie star by this point. Perhaps you and the other one would've preferred that as well.

I agree I think following the huge critical and commercial impact of Evita she saw a movie career ahead of her.

But she was already almost 40 with Evita, and roles for successfully established actressess in Hollywood post-40 are hard to come by, let alone Madonna!

I'm also in the camp of it didn't work out as expected.

The anticipation of Hard Candy was enormous I remember the so excited at the time, but Timberland had procdued much better material and although Pharells stuff was catchy, he'd produced bigger and better stuff.

I was expecting mammoth singles as at the time Timberland was setting the charts on fire every month with something new !

Hard Candy has aged so well and has grown on me so much through the years! It's such a brillant funky record.:clap: 

it's so much better than MDNA (aside from beautiful killer) even though it had a bad reputation i remember i listened to the album all the time. it really has a raw funk element to it that i appreciate

I hear Madonna tribe has a forum where only gushing praise is allowed, maybe you would enjoy it there more.  One of the good things about this forum is that it accepts we are all fans.  End of, so open discussion on what we do and dont like is fun and much more interesting.  Why try and shut something down because you dont agree with someones opinion? Converse back or skip the page.

Always the same in here.  

If you hint you like anything about lady Gaga it's instant execution. An attack on her single leads is torture, and anything about her age is life in prison 😂

Well, don't bring Gaga up in the Madonna sections.  Talk about her in her own thread.

It was a reference to her release this week, that's all.

With people like you around here, normal it's always the same.

Funny like you're always one of those who stir shit in almost every post you do. No surprise you get attacked.

I don't shit stir I was simply commenting and following on with the on going discussion.

My tongue in cheek comment about being executed for mentioning Gaga I feel is justified all the same.

But we are all united in our love for the Queen.

This is only my opinion but for the masses if she didn't include tracks 8,9,10 and made it a 10 track album it would've been an amazing effort!

Beat goes on, dance tonight and Spanish lesson were the fillers that brought it down. They are individually good 'b' sides! 3 in a row is a bit too much. Its not the big bad album a lot of people thinks it is. Were all different, I lost the cd I made from back then but I cut those 3 out.

(I know, I know youre all going to say you love those songs, as I said were all different).
