Why do the haters come in the "Appreciation" threads???

It's THE song of life. One of her absolute BEST in years (and that's not a shade on HC or MDNA...as y'all know I love those albums).

I haven't straight up stanned for a Madonna song like this in a LONG time. I'm tellin' you...


It's straight up CLASSIC Madonna - the 90s house feel, the lyrics, the choir, the entire feel of the song - euphoria personified. This IS an anthem with incredible universal appeal. I can't see this NOT connecting with listeners around the world (in some way...contrary to what blasphemers may say...)


I think it's the perfect first single...and it deserves an incredible video. It's literally begging for it.

And contrary to what some are saying, it does seem like this was to be the first single all along, it just got pushed forward a bit. I don't want to see this gem not get its just due as a single. Don't waste this moment team Madonna.


Straight up one of the most euphoric, inspiring, universal songs in a long time. Oh how I've waited for a song like this!!!

I can only imagine the remixes (official and unofficial). Somebody better make an extended house mix with some of the demo mixed in, ala Shep style TIC.

Oh, and anything negative said about this song is utter BLASPHEMY...and I will NOT be entertaining it.




Now LIVE FOR LOVE bitches.



I can't deal with your posts on this song. They're just so...on-point.

God I love this song so much!

Fantastic song. I can see why it was chosen as a first single. Such a fresh start for this era.

Very 90's in a good way. There's something about Kieza and her song Hideaway (?) especially the breaks. Its the 90's song Madonna never did with any of her songs of that period, if that makes any sense? :lol:

I can't wait for the video. This will be huge.

So has it officially been confirmed that's Alicia Keys on background vocals and piano? Anyways, best first single since Music. I'm glad they reworked it for the album. Love the demo but the production was too much like Hideaway.

billboard gave it a fab review!

When listening to Madonna sing a line like "Took me to heaven, let me fall down/Now that it's over, I'm gonna carry on" on new single "Living For Love," it's hard not to think of the disappointment the pop queen felt earlier this week, when her thirteenth album leaked online in demo form before it was even officially announced. Fortunately for fans, that initial shock is over, and Madge is carrying on with an album release -- "Living For Love" previews Rebel Heart, now due out in March, and hints at the defiant pose that the follow-up to 2012's MDNA may strike after a few overstuffed dance projects.

Unlike Madonna's previous two lead singles, the pre-EDM banger "4 Minutes" and the cheerleader pep talk "Give Me All Your Luvin'," "Living For Love" leaves its focus on its lyrics, with the singer beginning over a regal piano line that's eventually joined by pulsing percussion. The confidence Madonna displays on the track recalls singular classics like "Express Yourself" and "Like A Prayer," and when the song weaves its way toward a throbbing drop, Madonna continues crooning, refusing to be relegated to the background. "Living For Love" sounds like a giddy combination of Madonna's past and present, and represents an encouraging sign for a 2015 project that was unexpectedly thrown into jeopardy at the end of 2014.


I love the line '....a giddy combination of Madonna's past and present', which pretty much sums it op. the demo leaks would have destroyed a lesser mortal. Madonna triumphs because she's delivering the material (girl)!

I'm a bit surprised that this has got such a mixed reaction from fans. I can't see what's not to like about this song. The "took me to heaven..." bit especially is simply amazing.

Because if you were a teenager / adult in the nineties you would of already heard this song before. There's no real difference between this and Black Box or Snap. It's a pleasant enough song but nothing special, especially if considered as first single material. It is missing the WOW factor, which can't be achieved when you sound like a rehash.
