    I always thought that she had a great voice. I didn't particularly like the pop material that she sang. I did enjoy the songs that she sang in the movie "Dick Tracy". I think that she would shine doing jazz standards.



    But then, I liked the movie as well, when most people thought it to be a real stinker.

    I'm not into pure pop, but yay for her I suppose.

    You know, now that you mention it, I can hear his 'voice' in it, and can imagine Dire Straits playing it.

    Another one I've worked with. Hard working, opinionated, smart, sweet...and she can actually sing in person.

    On a break at a session, I picked up a guitar and we did Lady Is A Tramp. She nailed it.

    I was working an opening act for one of her tours many years ago...being the opening act, I had no contact with the headliners. It's just the way it was.

    During one of the shows early in the tour I was walking along a concrete corridor in the bowels of some arena when 'she' exited her dressing room wearing her pointy boobs thing...

    I hadn't seen that before. Truth be told, I really didn't know who she was and cared even less. But those things...? They scared the crap out of me. I think I went so far as to back up against a wall to let her pass for fear that they might go off or something.

    She just looked at me and laughed and said "don't worry, they don't bite...except maybe a little..."

    I stayed out of arena corridors for the rest of that tour. I didn't want to find out.

    well almost, but i got out of the way. I'm pretty sure my eyes were popping out of my head. You know, looking at where a gentleman just doesn't. I mean, how could I not? Now if someone had warned me, then okay...but seriously, I was clueless.

    I didn't even come back with a snappy repartee. I just stood there like some slack jawed yokel looking at Madonna's boobs.

    she was having way too much fun.

    She was in command of the situation and she knew it. But man, what a great story.

    Oh, Mad Donna? Well Nile said she was good so I guess she must be. I can't say I liked much of her stuff, but I really love this song. Incredibly catchy. And sounds like an Abba song.

    Happily, I haven't been tortured by it since my daughter left home.

    I had always assumed that this video was shot in NYC, but I've just noticed that the "subway" dance scene is filmed in a London Underground carriage!
