The Top TenXW

1Pray For Spanish Eyes
2Till Death Do Us Part

This really was an amazing song. I'd love if she brought this one back and gave it new life. It deserved much more recognition.

This track is real Beauty. Why didn't Madge make it a single? I still don't understand - Irina2932

Very powerful and emotional song. I think this song deserves a reboot!

3Forbidden Love

Wonderful track which was included to both "Bedtime Stories" (1994) and "Something To Remember" (1995) albums but still never had own single release. How sad - Irina2932

5I'm Addicted

I don't like very much the MDNA album, but I think this song is one of the best dance tracks of the last ten years...

6Sky Fits Heaven

Magic. Listening to this song I feel like travelling across the oceans. Really.

No question this is infinitely better than "Nothing Really Matters" - theOpinionatedOne

It might be her best song ever written and sung! Amazing lyrics, sophisticated production, superb vocals!
It should've been released as a single instead of Nothing Really Matters.

Catchy riff. Great lyrics.

7Joan of Arc

Should've released this ballad before Ghosttown. Would've resonated more with younger listeners.


This track should have been released as a single - it differs from all other songs on "Confessions on a Dance Floor" record and is my personal favorite non-single track in 2000's - Irina2932

Just an amazing inspirational track. Never fails to give me goosebumps.

One of Madonna's most beautiful songs since 2008 - should've been a single - Irina2932

The Newcomers

?I Want You
?White Heat

The Contenders

11Devil Wouldn't Recognize You

Best song from Hard Candy - mholland1997


Best song on Erotica!

13Beautiful Scars
14Thief of Hearts

This should've been the third single from Erotica, it's one of my favorite songs from the album, this had more potential than Bad Girl and Bye Bye Baby.

Great and sometime even funny track from marvelous album "Erotica" - Irina2932

This is the best track of Erotica... Why "Bye Bye Baby" was released as a single. Madonna missed the occasion to make a hit...

I also wish White heat was released from true blue

15Candy Shop

It has already been promoted a lot and performed on 3 tours in a row.
the only thing missing was a cool video and a single treatment


Many people criticize this song but I think it's very beautiful and melodious track - Irina2932


This song carries the main concept of Erotica, just like Where Life Begins. Her voice is full of cynism and sarcasm. I love to sit with a cigarette, coffee and just listen to it.

This should have made the radio.

Erotica is one of the best Madonna ' s albums, surely the most "artistic ", in spite of all the critics and the scarce success. Songs like this one, or Secret Garden are great works of art.

18Where's the Party

Very cool dance/party track - deserved being a single - Irina2932

Should be a single!

19Back In Business

I adore Madonna's "I'm Breathless" album but think it had very very and very poor promotion. Madonna sounds brilliant as jazz singer and her vocal was amazing - Irina2932

This fantastic album should have been more exploited : "Back in Business" or "He's a Man" should have been wonderful singles to promote this jazz period.
