Top 10 Madonna Songs


The Top TenXW

1Like a Prayer

Maybe the best song of all time not of course because of Madonna's vocals but for the great lyrics rhythm and the amazing gospel choir

I love the song with all my heart! Really amazing! Madonna is my favorite singer ever. You know I was born in 90-s and I used to dislike music of 80-s mostly but one of the singers who really changed my mind is Madonna and the songs which helped me are Like a Prayer and Like a Virgin. Like a Prayer is her best song

Its an awesome song thanks a lot

Madonna at her best. No second thoughts on this one. Like a prayer, um, sounds like a wonder to me. Long live the queen. That's my prayer.

Only a star such as Madonna could perform such a bold and iconic (both in lyrics and rhythm) song. The coolest, true dancefloor burner!

Vogue song I think is the most beautiful of all. Madonna I my idol and I love all that she sings. I am listening her songs since I was 10 years. I thing that she is doing a great job and I thing she likes making music. I love her. go Madonna.

I can listen to this music all day long. It's just the best song.

Oh, this song makes me wanna dance whenever I hear it. A really cool dancefloor number. Keep em coming madge

A brilliant song. The album was a masterpiece, and this song is different from what Madonna usually sings. It's catchy, groovy, calming and New Age. I love you Madonna, and wish you all the best.

Yeah, I voted before for Justify My Love, FYI I Don't really think that is her best. For real, her best is definitely Frozen, it is lyrically brilliant and her voice is simply gorgeous on this track, because of her training from Evita. Listening to it right now, it is pur-fection. Now, my order goes...

1. Frozen
2. Hung Up
3. Like a Prayer
4. 4 Minutes
5. Justify My Love

Frozen is a genius song that proves Madonna's star quality...

Such a calm and relaxed ballad, with a catchy chorus. Oh madonna, you melt my heart in a way that no one else can.

4Hung Up

I don't know if this is the greatest Madonna song ever, but I'll you this with confidence - THIS IS THE GREATEST DANCE SONG OF ALL TIME. The beats, the synthesizers, the busy beats, and the nonstop music gets you grooving uncontrollably on the dance floor.

Yes thankfully this is in the top ten yet it should be in the perfect place of number one because this song is what kept Madonna singing to this day because after the flop of American life the confessions on a dancefloor brought Madonna back to become one of the greatest singers again all because of

Supreme song best since music ultimate Madonna song like common the song is perky fun and very good dancefloor hit along with other masterpieces from the album so it is very easy to see why this is the best Madonna song and last great venture into the hearts of young fans because her recent songs try to hardto be cool unlike past works so hopefully the reputation will carry on how great this is love it best song ever

I can listen to it a million times and never get tired of it. Catchy and fun.

5La Isla Bonita

Greatest song with greatest melody. Can't pass my day without hearing this song. It is a great party song.

Legend makes legend! You will love any form of this song. No matter what the decade you are passing...

It has a great melody and nice lyrics. Unlike most 'controversial' songs of Madonna, this one is tolerable, but is also so much more. Nice and sad, but also a great party song when heard on the beach.

A true classic. Enough said.

6Like a Virgin

When you released "Like A Virgin" there were no going back, you headed to become the most succesful female artist in the world. You have ruled the world for 30 years, and you did it all because of this single!
Love You Madonna!

I first heard this song when I was 12 (1984), and have been a fan of Madonna since I was 10 (1982) when "everybody" song came on the radio. I wasn't too sure about that song, but when I heard "Like a Virgin", I thought "this singer is going to kick ass".

It is the best and most famous song of Madonna. Truly a classic.

Signature track

7Into the Groove

No one can compare Madonna and her god gifted voice

I've been dancing this song since high school and every time it gets me Into The Groove!

It's the most addictive song of Madonna with a hypnotic bassline and an incredibly catchy melody.

8Live to Tell

The way the song evolves and opens up, similar to stairway to heaven, its almost hypnotising. Very thought provoking. The way that the song takes away all of the layers towards the end, and brings it back with the "if I ran away" section, really adds to the depth of the song. I'm struggling to do this song justice, it's hard to put in words.

It's just so... Beautiful. Unquestioning, undisputed art.

For crying out loud. This is the best Madonna song.

9Papa Don't Preach

My Love to Madonna started with this song. Brilliant voice, great melody, fantastic musical combination with orchestra. Not to mention Madonna's wonderful performance - Irina2932

I came to know about Madonna with watching this song on VH1.. "... I know I'm keeping my baby... ".. Come on I want to see this in Top5.. Vote everyone..

Anthemic song. Madonna is unique and her music is incomparable. The music world would be dry without the iconic Queen - Madonna! Love YOU!

Very beautiful

10Express Yourself

I am surprised to see this song falling outside of the Top 10. I do think it is one of her greatest. Very meaningful and powerful while still being extremely fun. No matter the version/mix of this song, it still always holds up and is a great anthem to encompass her career.

Shocking to not see this song in the Top 5. Madonna recently said in an interview that if she could pick one song to represent her entire career, it would be this one. Still holds up today.

Most important song for me. Incredible.

?4 Minutes

the music is fantastic and madonna has sung it in a very different style...

I love this song... Madonna sings wonderfully and so does Justin! Its lyrics are awesome, the music is awesome and its truly one of Madonna's best ones!

I came across that list, after I watched Glee's episode dedicated to Madonna. "4 minutes" would probably be my favorite song from her, just because I love the drive, the style, the vocals and the energy that song wanna pass!

I Love This song

13Open Your Heart

Hey this is such a good song! It deserves to be in top 5

Might not be top ten material, but it's a very underrated, great song. One of my personal favorites.

Should be right behind La Isla Bonita since I consider it to be True Blues second best song and True Blue have many cool songs.

I adore this robust number from true blue. Everybody just open your hearts madonna

15Material Girl

Iconic... Legendary... This song, along with Like A Virgin, put Madonna on the map. Even today it is considered an anthem, especially among female rights organizations. Keep Going, Madonna!

The best song of Madonna. If you like 4 minutes of Madonna this is hundred times better. She sounds so young in this song too. I highly recommend it. All fans of Madonna should have this song in their playlist

The song everyone thinks of when they hear her name. This should be number 1, like a virgin number 2, and like a prayer number 3. But seriously this song never gets old!

Fun, catchy and ironic. Rightfully deserves a higher position. Reflects the materialistic society we are living in where money runs the world. Don't let the lyrics fool you. Madonna is not actually encouraging materialism in this song. Instead she is mocking girls who run after men with money.

This deserves to be way higher. It has got to be her best song ever. I first heard this when I was 5 (2008) and it has stayed with me ever since. - RockFashionista

Make me dance in 2014-15 well I'm just 20 year old

Such a feel good song, should be MUCH higher

Its once of the classics

18The Power of Good-Bye

Very deep and really powerful ballad with great Madonna's vocal. She sounds wonderfully brilliant here. And the video was amazing. Fantastic track! - Irina2932

Haunting beat which fits perfectly with her vocals. This is truly an enchantingly beautiful song. - mholland1997

Another gem from ray of light. Just brilliant. Even 50 years from now, people will still listen to this song. That's the power of madonna.

Beautiful vocals, passionate lyrics and a mesmerizing production to back it up

This is a top 3 song right here, along with 4 Minutes and either Hung Up or Celebration. Those should be in the top 3.

One of the only three Madonna songs I actually like (the other two being 4 minutes and frozen)
