Discussion in '80's Music' started by Soot and Stars, Jan 15, 2010.
dude she is a icon...
Madonna is iconic, without question. She marketed herself with sheer expertise and her unrivalled ability to use shock value within her art was worthy of note too.
However, today, her efforts reek of desperation.
I gave up on Pop music in the 80s, but she did it well.
When the "Like A Virgin" album came out I liked it, but I totally went for her debut self-titled album!
When 1998's "Ray Of Light" album came out is when I took a second look and re-assessed my opinion
of her music. This one is still on my favorite albums of all time list.
Looking back, I'd have to give Madonna a "mostly positive" review. I do have evry album of hers in one
form or another, and am veerrry tempted to buy the double LP release of "Ray Of Light".
The great lady herself is over in London in January & February of 2020 appearing nightly at The London Palladium in London's west end spread over three weeks so I'm thinking about going to see the show??.
I never really took any notice of Madonna when she burst onto the scene back in the early/mid 1980s although I was aware of her but I wasn't into her thing but in recent years my interest in her and her 1980s albums especially has slowly grown in interest with me so when listening to the albums Madonna & Like A Virgin strangely many of the songs sound like old long lost friends??.
Am I the only one here who actually does prefer her 80s albums over her 90s and later ones?
I guess, they're just fun and catchy.. and also very nostalgic to me! haha
Apart from 'Ray of Light', I don't care much for her post 80s outputs.
I like Madonna's 1980s albums the debut Madonna album, Like A Virgin, True Blue & Like A Prayer.
I would be interested in hearing Madonna playing electric guitar with Pantera especially.
Ray Of Light and Music were both good albums that Madonna came up with. I think it was during her life change experience.
I made a tape for a friend yesterday and included this cool song.
I've Madonna to thank for getting me into James Cagney movies with White Heat, brilliant song and brilliant movie!
I have been playing MADAME X quite a bit in recent weeks the deluxe double cd version and I like it and I would rate it as one of her better albums. Madame X is nothing like her 1980s dance/pop albums but that's ok and even though the album has a range of individual songs when I listen to the album all the way through from start to finish it comes across (to me) like one long joined up piece of music like a concept album. The last song on the standard & deluxe cd is called I Rise and it is such a fitting final song to round off the album, it's perfect.
If you read this Madge well done...
