Music Monday - Madonna

In honor of her upcoming birthday, I thought I'd share my five favorite Madonna songs. I'm not a huge fan anymore, but she was my favorite in the '80s and '90s and no one can say that she's not a superstar. Can you believe she'll be 55 on Friday? I saw her MDNA concert last fall and the lady can move! 

Crazy For You
Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all
Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you'll see
I'm crazy for you

Crazy for You by Madonna on Grooveshark

Papa Don’t Preach
Daddy, daddy if you could only see
Just how good he's been treating me
You'd give us your blessing right now
'Cause we are in love, we are in love,so please
Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep

Open Your Heart
I think that you're afraid to look in my eyes
You look a little sad boy, I wonder why
I follow you around but you can't see
You're too wrapped up in yourself to notice
So you choose to look the other way
Well, I've got something to say
Don't try to run I can keep up with you
Nothing can stop me from tryin', you've got to
Open your heart to me, baby I'll hold the lock and you hold the key

  Human Nature
You punished me for telling you my fantasies
I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't make
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
Did I say something true? Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I have a point of view? Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)

  Human Nature by Madonna on Grooveshark

There's something in the air in Hollywood
The sun is shinin' like you knew it would
You're ridin' in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good
Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good

I never rush to hear her new music and I haven't bought an album since the late '90s (she lost me right around Evita), but I'm always curious to see what she comes up with next. What are your favorite Madonna songs?

I have to admit I do like Madonna's old music. Her later stuff is sort of meh to me. But her old stuff? Gold.

Misty said...

Her old stuff is definitely great. I do love her album Music from 2000. It's one of my favorites, not just from her, but from any artist. I don't know if it's because it fit the time in my life or what. It's just always been a standout album for me.

Gwen said...

Definitely prefer the older stuff. I love Crazy For You and Papa Don't Preach and to round out my top five I'd add Express Yourself, Vogue and Borderline (it always makes an appearance at our porch dance parties).

I'm not a huge Madonna fan either but Crazy For You is probably in my top 10 fave songs. Love it so much!!

Who doesn't like Madonna........

Will you still let me visit if I admit that I loath her? Bitch is from Detroit, she needs to cut the English accent. Lol. She did have some hits back in the day though :)

Ugh, MY HERO. American Life (I think it is called?) was one of my favorites. But nothing will ever, EVER top True Blue. And Crazy for You is totally on my wedding playlist :)
