Madonna - Hung Up

Egad. This has 'escaped', and I've got to say that it's terrible. The lyrics are bad, the ABBA sample is

"Time goes by so slowly" - it certainly does when you're listening to this tripe. Anyone else heard it?

Was it the dance version played on Pete Tong's show?

If so may not be very indicative to what the final version will be like.

From the thread title I was hoping that this was going to be a News bulletin.

No, it's the radio version. (Certainly the version I'm listening to is)

One of my fave Abba tunes and in my opinion, not ruined!


Hopefully the album is of similar stuff and up to the production standards of the last few.

The dub version was ripped by the various mp3 groups out there the same day that the 12" promos were sent out to the club dj's on Warners UK and US promo lists.

The radio release was released last week, albeit a very murky and badly ripped one.

The sooner she gets back working with William Orbit the better....on first listen Hung Up is pretty poor......saying that, i'll still get the album!


She still has an album to release from her collaboration with Orbit...its called Veronica Electronica....I would sell my mother to get a copy of it!

She hasn't done anything decent since Ray Of Light. I think she needs to get back to working with William Orbit or give up!

I think she should make this release interesting and pledge to give up her career if it doesn't get to number 1. That would be original...

Only heard it once but it doesn't grab me. There's nothing 'interesting' in it. All it does is make me want to listen to more Abba which isn't a bad thing really, at least that's quality pop music!

Madonna - Hung up (with pics!!)

Just caught the new video to Madonna's new song.
Have to say she's looking mighty good for her age
(and the song is pretty groovy too)

I thought that was getting its premiere tomorrow night, or have I been looking at the wrong page in the Radio Times?

I thought it was very impressive. And what a butt. That's Yoga for you.
In fact, I've been doing Yoga for years myself, and I too have a great butt

A friend who heard the album, told me it's great, with a handful of standout dance tracks, of which "Hung Up" is one of them..

I think Madge has wiped the floor with Geri, Kylie and flipped a finger to Moloko and Goldfrapp at the same time.
