Can we talk about the fact how good some lyrics on MDNA are

Recommended Posts

like wtf um2

I was just listening deluxe tracks and actually payed attention to lyrics on Best Friend for the first time

 

Best Friend and I fucked Up have some of her most honest lyrics 

 

You know, when i listen this album i don't pay attention to lyrics because 'it's EDM, it's mindless, it's bop, this and that etc.', but most of the album actually has great lyrics and really shows that she was actually hurt by divorce more than she admitted first on I Don't Give a and Love Spent. I think that's the reason she placed those 2 on deluxe.

 

It's just few tracks that ruined this project. Actually singles + Superstar and Some Girls.

 

 

 

Best Friend

I miss your brain, the way you think
But I don't miss the way you used to drink
I miss our talks, the Universal Law
You had a way of seeing through my thoughts

It's so confusing I thought i met my match
An intellectual would telling for a catch
You always said we be better off as friends
It was inevitable that it would end

Your picture's off my wall
But I'm still waiting for that call
And every man that walks through that door
Will be compared to you forever more

Still I have no regret
Cuz I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend

I miss the country side where we used to lay
The smell of roses on a lovely summer day
You made me laugh, you had a clever wit
I miss the good times, I don't miss all of it

You wrote me poetry, you had a way with words
You said you wanted more than just a pretty girl
Maybe I challenged you a little bit too much
We couldn't have two drivers on the clutch

It's so sad that had to end, I lost my very best friend
Not gonna candy coat it, and I don't want to pretend
I put away your letter, saved the best ones that I have
It wasn't always perfect, but it wasn't always bad

It's so sad that it had to end

 

I Fucked Up

I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I’m sorry, I’m not afraid to say
I wish I could take it back, but I can’t

I’m so ashamed, you’re in so much pain
I blamed you when things didn’t go my way
If I didn’t, you’d be here
If I didn’t fight back I’d have no fear
If I took another path
Things would be so different, but they’re not

I could have just kept my big mouth closed
I could have just done what I was told
Maybe I should have turned silver into gold
But in front of you I was cold

I thought we had it all
You brought out the best in me
But somehow I destroyed the perfect dream
I thought we were indestructible
I never imagined we could fall
You wanna know how to make God laugh
Tell him your plans...

We could've bought a house with a swimming pool,
Filled it up with warmers, It would be so cool,
Could've gone riding stallions in the country side,
With a pack of RingDings, we sing eye to eye

We could've toured the world in a private jet
Run naked on the beach, all soaking wet
We could've climbed a mountain, seen a perfect sun rise,
Written our names across the sky
We could've gotten drunk and driven on the autobahn
We could've got ourselves arrested and sober up
We could've lived life crazy 'til the day we die
Instead I made you cry..

I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I'm sorry, I’m not ashamed to say
I wish I could have it back maybe one day


Or not.

 

 

The reason I think both MDNA and RH turned out to be less than they could've been are her kids. She's listening them way too much, she said many times during RH that they inspire her for sounds, Diplo, EDM, they want her to be 'cool' etc. um1

I'm so mad right now um1

We all know by now that Madonna is an excellent songwriter. Most of her lyrics came from that little notebook she pours her heart into. The woman loves to read so it's not a surprise if she's good with words.   gaga13

I agree tho, her choice of producers seemed too safe lately starting from Hard Candy and it looks like she's still looking for her new Mirwais or Orbit to arrive. She said she likes Grimes and James Blake so i was a bit surprised when she picked Solveig for MDNA. She tried too many producers with Rebel Heart and it obviously worked against her. She could at least do a proper collaboration with Offer Nissim since she used a lot of their remix on tour. We know that's how she found Orbit.

She is naturally cool. It's weird that she feels inclined to try to be 'cool'

I think they have the same problem as some other songs like 'Devil Wouldn't Recognize You'. Lyrics are great but production AND music are not well worked or try to sound so safe. brit4

Yeah but i'm not talking about production on good songs, you missed the point brit4 

 

I'm talking about the fact that people are missing good songs and lyrics because of the songs like GGW, GMAYL, TUTR, SM, Superstar brit4

But I guess more people have problem with the production? brit3 I mean, MOST people here agreed that I Fucked Up was a trashy song yet the lyrics are one of her best on the album. I think it's easy to miss good lyrics if the production doesn't have that much quality.

But yeah I agree that the single choises didn't even make people trying to look for deeper stuff in MDNA.

I don't see people here trashing I fucked up, and production is very nice, in fact it's one of the most interesting ones on MDNA brit3

I see people here not looking into deeper songs because they don't care, MDNA is labeled as 'trashy EDM mindless music' even if most of it it's not.

I remember certain users saying it wasn't a good song at all in a MDNA thread. brit3

Oh it was Funhouse NEVERMIND fall5

tbh I think the deluxe version has the better tracks, what do you think? brit4

We could've bought a house with a swimming pool,
Filled it up with Warhols It would be so cool,
Could've gone riding stallions in the country side,
With a pack of Great Danes, racing eye to eye

We could've toured the world in a private jet
Run naked on the beach, all soaking wet
We could've climbed a mountain, seen a perfect sun rise,
Written our names across the sky
We could've gotten drunk and driven on the autobahn

We could've lived life crazy 'til the day we die

Corrected the lyrics. It's Warhols, not warmers. And Great Danes.
