A podcast that dissects Madonna’s most famous songs, discussing how the were written and recorded, often referring to demos and outtakes
Episode 22 - Holiday
Madonna's first, big, international release and the opening track on Immaculate Collection - this song may sound very 1983, but it still cuts it when played on the radio today. It was almost never recorded by her but was turned around in under five days at the cost of $10,000 - why has it endured?
Bonus Beats - Express Yourself Remixes
A dive into the most famous of all Madonna's remixes - and a listen to the changes made for the single remix, too. We try to examine why Madonna would become so smitten with this version that it would be what she took on the road for 1990's Blond Ambition tour.
Episode 21 - Express Yourself
One of Madonna's first songs. Hear how it was written, how it was recorded, what the people behind the song think of it and we also go there... down the Lady GaGa route but not before examining what song Madonna was "influenced" by. Plus there are a few things you may never have heard before...
Episode 20 - Masterpiece
This stunning song won Madonna a Golden Globe for its use in the movie WE and would also be an emotional highlight of the MDNA album. This episode discusses the creation of that record and shines the light on other tracks. Included in this episode are Madonna's raw vocal - without effects - and also a version of Masterpiece sung by the original writer.
Episode 19 - Crave
