The Top Ten

Like 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

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.

3La 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 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...

5Hung 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.
Best song ever I just love it
It a must for the superbowl 2012
Madonna please perform this song and 4 minutes!
Too bad that justin is banned from the superbow
I am so hung up on why this is in 6th place like that is very weird for me plus this song is ussually top 3 for most lists so I am very perplexed plus I love the whole abba beat and the lyrics are a work of art for madonna its just one of those songs that you can listen too over and over so please see the joy of this worthy top 3 song. Ps the whole album is a jewel but that is another story that explains my
confine of love for this song!

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!
It is the best and most famous song of Madonna. Truly a classic.
Listen to sample

7Papa 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


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

84 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!

9Into the Groove

No one can compare madonna and her god gifted voice
It's the most addictive song of Madonna with a hypnotic bassline and an incredibly catchy melody.

The Contenders

11Express 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.

12True Blue Listen to sample

13Take a Bow

Most of all I love Madonna's fantastic performance of this song. The way she changed her voice was impressive. This is definitely one of her most powerful tracks


Listen to sample


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)

15Die Another Day
Come on guys vote for it this song is amazing and at least deserves to be in top 5. It has also got an amazing music video. Please please please vote
Many people hated this song and I don't understand why. 'Die Another Day' is very cool track with nice beat and sound. One of my favorite Bond themes ever


Love this song vote this one up this song should be higher up the list near number 1

16Material 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
My sister loves this song! I've always loved the music and Madonna's dress is fabulous!
Listen to sample

17The 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!


Beutiful and unique ballad. Such a fun, addictive song. I miss this kind of pop. This is her best song and also it's extremly underrated in todays generation. Madonna is 4th on my list only behind Celine Dion, Lara Fabian and Anastacia :D.
Listen to sample

18Girl Gone Wild
Madonna's latest. It's so groovy. Madonna is so great in adapting to current trends and GGW certainly is MODERN. Yeah-hey-i-yeah! Girls they just wanna have some fun!
Listen to sample

I totally agree that this song belongs higher. Many fans talk about this song as one of their favorites and one of her most inspiring songs ever.
Very meaningful song. I always thought it should have gotten more recognition than it did at the time. It hit #1 on the Dance Charts in the US and inspired millions.

20This Used to Be My Playground
One of Madonna's best ballads.
Best vocal I ever heard
Listen to sample

This song better than some other songs
My favorite should be higher on the list
Listen to sample

22You'll See
Though this song was a big hit, it seems to often get forgotten. One of her greatest ballads. Emotional and poignant.
One of the greatest vocal performances from Madge. Seriously, she sounds amazingly beautiful here.

23Live to Tell
It's just so... Beautiful. Unquestioning, undisputed art.
Listen to sample

24Open 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.

Out of every Madonna song ever made (and I've heard them all) the lyrics always stay stuck in my head.


This song is really catchy!

It's a very good place to start...
Listen to sample

40Lucky Star

41Justify My Love
Obviously, not her best song, vocally or lyrically, but damn that music and trip-hop beat light this song on fire! Not to mention the music video is nothing short of soft porn, and after seeing it, the song itself just sounds like porn for the ears.

Her real best songs, though, are
#1. Like a Prayer
#2. 4 Minutes
Listen to sample

42American Life
Very underrated song by Madonna, which is much better than everybody says. I love it's unique folk/electronica sound and it's lyrical content. I think Madonna was very brave to release a song like this, I definitely think it's just as good as my other favourites: Like A Prayer, This Used To Be My Playground, Ray Of Light and Music.
Listen to sample

43Miles Away
This song is very good and gives a good love message about long distance relationships. Along with like a prayer and hung up, this is my favorite! This song hit number 2 in the US clubs chart (the song has a good pop beat)...
My favourite by Madonna.
