Add one song: VT setlist

Recommended Posts

I'm bored. We're getting no news about the album, there're no leaks, and I'm dying for some new Madonna -- So let's play a game:

It's 1985. Madonna is a newly-minted superstar with two hit albums -- the second of which is a worldwide smash -- and more than a half dozen hit singles getting wall-to-wall play on radio and MTV. She's finishing rehearsals for her first-ever concert tour and she thinks the setlist needs ONE more song to round out the show. What song do you add? And where does it go?

Here's the actual VT setlist for anyone who needs a quick reminder:

  1. Dress You Up
  2. Holiday
  3. Into the Groove
  4. Everybody
  5. Angel
  6. Gambler
  7. Borderline
  8. Lucky Star
  9. Crazy for You
  10. Over and Over
  11. Burning Up
  12. Like a Virgin
  13. Material Girl

Physical Attraction, after Lucky Star.

My pick:

  1. Dress You Up
  2. Holiday
  3. Into the Groove
  4. Everybody
  5. Angel
  6. Gambler
  7. Borderline
  8. Think of Me
  9. Lucky Star
  10. Crazy for You
  11. Over and Over
  12. Burning Up
  13. Like a Virgin
  14. Material Girl

God, I love "Think of Me." It has smash hit written all over it, tbh. Could have been a megahit just like "Borderline" and "Lucky Star" if she didn't have "LAV" already on tap and just SCREAMED for a live performance.

A live performance of Stay would've been epic!

I think the obvious choice here is Physical Attraction. Should've been song #2. 

But wow, what a fucking setlist that is. It's just one classic after another.

I was looking at the non-performed songs that could be the answer to this thread's question and Think Of Me popped up right there, after Borderline, as you have it.

It would be the Mad Section lol:

Angel - Belief in nonexistent beings
Gambler - Megalomaniac syndrome
Borderline - Personality disorder
Think Of Me - Intellectual functioning

:rotfl:

Physical Attraction and Stay. Why can’t it be a 15 track setlist?

I actually want to add TWO songs. 

1. "Physical Attraction" (after "Burning Up")

2. A cover of Mary Jane Girls' "In My House" (after "Into the Groove").

Physical Attraction

I guess they didn't add it because it was a bit  too risque for her fanbase at the time? They probably felt it was enough with Burning Up.

It’s down to Pretender, Stay, or Physical Attraction for me.

I’ll go with Pretender, although I’m sure I’ll change my mind in 5 seconds.

Physical attraction for personal taste BUT as LDLHA was a single here in Japan I think it should have made the final cut.
