    Wow. I'm surprised by some of the "Worst Madonna Songs" choices. La Isla Bonita? Till Death Do Us Part? Holiday? Burning Up? Nothing Fails? Deeper and Deeper? Vogue? Everybody? My head is spinning ...

    I figured True Blue, GMAYL, and 4 Minutes would get cited, but I like them and personally don't think they're her worst songs. I happen to love Mother and Father, Miles Away, Cherish, and several others that are on the "worst" lists.

    It's much harder for me to come up with 10 favorite songs, but Madonna does have some songs in her catalog that are pretty glaringly awful, many of which have already been mentioned. So I found it pretty easy to do a Least Favorite list. I'm sticking to songs that have been officially released in some capacity, since songs that weren't ever intended to be heard ... well, often SOUND like they weren't intended to be heard.

    1. Hey You
    2. Jimmy Jimmy
    3. Love Makes the World Go 'Round
    4. White Heat
    5. I'm Going Bananas
    6. I Love NY
    7. Spanish Lesson (I am one of the few HC fans around here, but this song is terrible)
    8. I'm So Stupid
    9. Don't Stop
    10. Fighting Spirit *

    * I pretty much think every B-side and unreleased demo from this era is terrible, except for "Super Pop."

    I could also have easily thrown "Where's the Party?" on there ... I really don't like that song at all.

    It says "least favorite songs".
    And I am tired of Vogue.

    This is apparently some kind of fan favorite, but I never understood the love for it. It sounds like Madonna at her most out-of-touch, despite the solid performance during the RIT.

    sleep, I think it epitomizes everything that I found wrong with American Life. Heavy cacophony of production noises without cohesive music, hammered home by preachy lyrics that's the opposite of self-aware. In short, an unfinished piece.

    I really love American Life as an album. It's probably her most personal and I think it's quite cohesive. However I can totally understand the problems most people have with it. For me though, it's quite solid.
    I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    I like AL as an album a lot as well. It just has some very high highs and some very low lows.

    Even the songs that don't work for me have interesting features, though, whether in terms of the production or the vocals. I really like her vocals on this album, and I thought Mirwais was a great producer for her.
