MASTER PIECE

I can't believe there are people here who haven't actually listened to Ray of Light in its entirety; it's basically a gay rite of passage to listen to all of Madonna's albums. Gay of Light is a terrif

I remeber it so vividly in primary school. suddenly many girls tryed henna in their hair and on their hands.

and always had it in the back of my mind as march release

skin, Sky fits Heaven, Mer Girl, The Power of Good-Bye ,Little Star & Drowned World / Substitute for Love (and all the others )

and has to be would be my faves.

 

also listen to the unreleased Liquid Love (and cyber raga, a b side of the dont tell me single; and obvl bedtime story.). COAD and spotlight are my other faves of her. obvl. true blue,  like a virgin, music, like a prayer, erotica, american life and madonna are also on top for me.

Thank you, I have heard them I absolutetly love Liquid Love

The Greatest Pop Record of All Time :kisses2all_britney_pom_piece_of_me_green_blowing_kissing: For personal records, people usually take slow Rn'B or ambient music to make their records but Madonna being Madonna, took electronica, house, techno and trance...these 4 genres solely known for dancing and upbeat music to create such a risky, mysterious, euphoric and ethereal record. I often find myself being too defensive on this record when someone trashes it, but that is because it was a beam of light to my recovery from the worst year of my life. The title track (Ray Of Light) and Someday (I Will Understand) were songs that really were what helped me during tough times, and that is why I respect this album so much :mcry_mariah_carey_proud_beaming: I really wish Madonna would dodge all the politics, dramas, scandals, instagram and just....go back to making music like this. Music that made her the queen of pop. I feel so proud to own the vinyl of this gorgeous record :fakecry_christina_aguilera_xtina_crying_tears_wipe_sad:

EDIT: My favorite tracks from the album is a strong tie between Drowned World and Sky Fits Heaven :tysm_beyonce_thanks_wow_gratitude_love_you_ily:

 

Sky Fits Heaven is possibly y favorite too. Very eclectic sound, I dont think its for everyone. It has beautiful melodies, all these sounds and elements mixing together. A gem. And Power Of Goodbye comes in second or third...the whole album is a pop masterpiece. Madonna really went somewhere with william orbit for this album. Love it.

Gay of Light is a terrific album and arguably her best one in terms of production and songwriting. :tysm_beyonce_thanks_wow_gratitude_love_you_ily:

Like a gay guy said, on a post celebrating this album by The biggest UK gay magazine attitude,  not all gay men, like Madonna,  or pop Music in general..

 

He even said, he doesn't feel like he's part of the community,  cos they don't target metal or hard rock fans.

He feels the gay community only cares about the stereotypes,  and anybody who isn't in that crowd , will never get representation, cos being a queen like Jake, or a macho queen like Will,  is the only acceptable form of gays.
