Who cares about the shit stuff, The Immaculate Collection lives up to its name. Iconic and, let’s be honest, also a decent actor.

Think Like A Prayer might actually be the best pop song of all time. If not it’s certainly close.

Given her a 4 for now as I only really like 1 album (Like a Virgin) but will be listening to her mucho today to see whether I bump that up to a 5

If I could make a list of my mistakes and regrets
I’d wouldn’t put her name on top and every line after it

This is like waiting for the teletext page to change.

Vossi Bop?

A few obvious fives but considering everything I’ve heard can’t be higher than a three.

Tough pick between Frozen and Ray Of Light and Frozen

Like seriously, there’s no arguing with Madonna’s greatness. I never liked her (except Like A Prayer obviously) when I was young cause I started listening to music right around her weakest run (Ray of Light/American Life/Music) but she won me over with Confessions on a Dancefloor and since then I’ve discovered her early stuff and it’s so great. Like A Prayer is legit one of the greatest songs of all time but then there’s tracks like Crazy For You, Erotica, Frozen, Into The Groove and oh my god Papa Don’t Preach.

I know who I’m listening to at work today aaaaaaaaaaaa :star_struck:

Oh yeah, my initial reaction to her when I was young also really wasn’t helped by all the shit attempts to get into acting

I used to listen to Capital Radio a lot around when she first broke (I know, I know, I was young and my dad used it for traffic news when he drove so I just figured it was the station you listened to) because I’d finally been given a cassette/radio thing for my birthday. I just recall how much she dominated and had what seemed like half the songs in their top 10. And they were all so great.

I was going to vote 3 cause there’s a lot of dross in there but then as I was posting the poll I realised that there are a LOT of 5/5 bangers on that list so bumped it up to a 4. American Life is still pretty unforgivable.

Genuinely not sure there’s anyone else out there who’s been as good as Madonna has for as long as Madonna has :thinking:

Desperately Seeking Susan is good (or was from what I remember of seeing it around the time). And in fact I watched Shanghai Surprise on YouTube the other day because How Did This Get Made did an episode on it and she’s fine. The film is total shit but she’s great.

Don’t make me explain it

One of my all time favourite albums. Sounds nothing like Madonna though.
