Madonna: Music

Either I’m producing more testosterone than is good for me or Madonna is one horny mother. However its all to no avail as on 22nd December 2000 Madonna walked down the aisle of a Scottish Cathedral to the dulcet tones of "Music" sung by a choir of schoolboys dressed in their best Ali G outfits. "Music" the album, like Madonna’s wedding entrance also gets underway with "Music" the single as Ms Ciccione asks "Hey Mr. DJ put a record on, I wanna dance with my baby". The song itself probably requires little more description as it has been fairly hard to avoid. It is however a first class piece of modern pop and demonstrates Madonna’s ability to keep up to date. Another notable track, "I Deserve It" has an opening lyric of "This GUY was meant for me and I was meant for him"; there’s no doubt that she got the hots for a certain British film director. Despite the overly soppy lyrics this is another fine song. "Amazing" is not dissimilar to "Beautiful Stranger", which featured in Austin Powers 2. It seems to have a very similar structure and melody, and more importantly it helps me conjure up happy memories of her rubbing her butt up against Mike Myers. "Don’t Tell Me" the latest single is seemingly designed to make people think their CD players are on the blink as the song seems to be randomly jumping or skipping. The video doesn’t help a great deal as that also freezes and jumps around. After several listens though it does seem to work quite well and this is yet another great single. The album concludes with her version of Don McClean’s "American Pie" which was never going to get anywhere near the original and she doesn’t even attempt the later versus. The next thing to look forward to is a release of the version of "Music" sung by the Ali G schoolboy choir, all in the name of charity of course.
