#5 in my favourite songs of 2012
#5 in my favourite songs of 2012 is "Girl Gone Wild" by Madonna. Click on the song title to see when I first wrote about the song.
This anthem is a return to Madonna's dance songs, and it is one of her best. Sure the lyric borrows a little from Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." But that is OK, because this song is ace. And during the spring and early summer, it was sitting at my #1 spot.
The song very reminiscent of "Vogue" … Especially with the black and white video. And you can't blame Madonna for wanting to recapture some of that magic. And I think she did a wonderful job.
This is the third and final song from Madonna in my 2012 countdown. You might remember that "Give Me All Your Lovin'" was at #19 and "Turn Up The Radio" was at #12. Even though ballads aren't really my thing, I will say that if Madonna had released "Falling Free" as a single from her "MDNA" album, it probably would have made my Top 20. I love and adore that song. And it is a pity that the masses (beyond Madonna fans) didn't hear it. She also had a song off the new album called "Love Spent" that I absolutely adored, too.
Overall, it was a great year for Madonna … the Super Bowl performance, her album, 3 singles in my Top 20. Keep it coming, Madge!
