Her Madgesty is celebrating her 60th birthday this month so we’re dedicating August to the Queen of Pop. We will be picking our A to Z of Madonna singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Madonna album.
We have reached the letter H.
H is for Hung Up. The first single from Madonna’s epic Confessions on a Dancefloor album was produced by Stuart Price and saw Madonna channelling Farah Fawcett in the video. She showed she’s still got the moves and flexibility as she rolled about a dance studio before heading to the arcades. It’s impossible to stay still listening to this song so turn it up loud!
- Hung Up features a sample of ABBA’s Gimme Gimme Gimme single
- The single was first teased in an advert for Motorola where Madonna was joined in a classic phone box in the desert by acts including Iggy Pop and Alanis Morrisette
- Hung Up gave Madonna her 11th UK no.1 single in 2005
H was a toughie, there’s some massive hits begining with H including Holiday and Holllywood. Plus there’s the naughty Hanky Panky, the unapologetic Human Nature and her charity track for Live Earth, Hey You. Did we pick the right one? Tell us @entfocusmusic and what you’d pick for the letter I.
