Top 10 Best Madonna Songs

The Top Ten
1 Like a Prayer

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

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.

Yes! Yes! Despite its controversy, it is probably the most spiritual of her songs and the most empowering.

This song has it all, talks about racism, religion, love... Etc this is one of the best song ever!

2 Vogue

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.

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

Superb crossover track. Didn't like Madonna songs till this era. From this moment on she changed fashion and attitudes to music and equality!

Love this song so much! Has lots of different parts and great backround music! She is one of the greatest performers ever and makes the most out of every performance!

3 Like a Virgin

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".

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!

To be honest This is a great song and is should be ranked higher. May be an unpopular opinion but but this song is better than like a prayer.

Classic, and one of the most classic Madonna's songs I've ever heard.

4 Frozen

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

So entrancing, atmospheric and dark. The instrumentals work in perfect harmony, it always makes you feel like you're flying harmless over inhospitable lands

Everything is perfect, and simple at the same time! The song was also so big here in Syris in late 90s and many people fell for the astounding voice of Madonna.
Ray Of Light in general is her best album lyrically and vocally in my opinion. A pop classic. Quality electronic music.

Out of respect I labeled this song sacred. Listening to it feels like a spiritual awakening process.. you could even think that the song gives you some sort of mystical power when listening to it. You know you're frozen if this song fails to have an effect on your psyche.

5 La Isla Bonita

On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look.

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.

This is one of the rare songs that will refresh your senses and bring you peace and the beautiful lyrics will leave anyone spellbound. Undoubtedly the BEST SONG EVER!

I can't express the feelings this songs has made me feel... I definitely fell in love with her with this song and then there was like a prayer vogue frozen etc TONS of songs that made me fly

6 Borderline

This is by far my favorite Madonna song. Such true lyrics, I love it.

This song will introduce you to Madonna. This song is just perfect.

It's a song caught in time. The 80s.

Good memories of 1983

7 Into the Groove

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.

The most "Madonna" song of all, and arguably the best pop song of the 1980s!

Best dance song ever!

8 Hung Up

This is Madonna's best single and is by far the greatest dance pop single ever I love this song by far the best of the best.
This a sure fantastic song for any party goer and has one of the best video clips too.

There is only one word to describe hung up amazing. It is a great hit from 2005. I love it I am a massive fan of madonna she is great and I was glad she released this tune! I listen to it daily. Madonna is the best

The song that brought madonna back to the front. The way she skillfully samples ABBA's gimme, gimme gimme in this song is the proof of her genius. I am so hung up on madonna

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

9 Papa Don't Preach

Poignant yet robust. Rebellious yet vulnerable. Kudos to madonna for highlighting the plight of pregnant teens in a judgemental society. True blue is one of my favourite madonna albums. May god give more power to her.

One of her best songs from True Blue a one of a kind classic song.I was born in 99 and just last year I heard Madonna for the very first time and I am in love with her I wish so much that could live in the 80's it was such a great decade for Madonna.

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!

10 Material Girl

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.

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!

The Contenders
11 Live 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.

Best song of hers. Wasn't a big Madonna fan, but I'd put this song next to any Phil Collins hit from the same era.

This song is a perfect 80s song, when everything was so good and original.

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

12 Express Yourself

"You don't need diamond rings or 18-karat gold. Fancy cars that go very fast, you know they never last no-no."

Very noble sentiment from the original Material Girl.

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.

This is the best song. It has the best message!

13 Holiday

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.

I like other songs, but this makes me so fine and happy..
"The blond ambition tour" can prove it.

Its once of the classics

14 Ray of Light

How Papa Don't Preach ranked above this I'll never understand. This song was incredibly innovative for pop music at the time and it still sounds amazing today! It's also arguably the best vocal performance of her career!

This is Madonna at her best, & it won so many awards. How is it not in the top ten?

22 wow this is news to me in any other list ray of light is always in the top 15 or more, like come on this has to be and is Madonnas best song ever!
And please papa don't preech in the top ten instead of ray of light for shame people for shame

When released, Madonna fans were, in my opinion, at their "highest. "

15 Open Your Heart

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.

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

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

Fantastic! One of her greatest ones! "True Blue" is such a great album

16 Crazy for You

The best love song I have heard till date. Madonna is the best.

How is this 18th? This was her first great ballad!

One of the best pop ballads of the 80s.

17 4 Minutes

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!

Rocking isn't it.
Its one of the best maddonas song.
I love it.
Justin timber added a soul in it

Awesome duo. Great combination

18 Music

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)

Should be top 10

19 Take 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

One of my favourite madonna ballads. Felt so good when it featured on FRIENDS. Deserves to be in the top ten. Everyone, take a bow before the queen of pop

I love this song and it was played on my favorite episode of T.V. show friends

Her most underrated song in the UK only peaking at number 16 in the Charts

20 Cherish

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!

21 You'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.

Absolutely her best! It is timeless.

Her strongest ballad of the 90's which proved she could sing very well

22 Lucky Star

Good pop song

23 Beautiful Stranger

Well this has always been one of my favourites. It's at number 51 as I write - should be in the top twenty. Anyone else love it?

In the U.K. This was he most played radio song in 1999. Great track between the ray of light and music albums too

I love this song, it's the only song by Madonna I listen too!

24 Hollywood
25 This Used to Be My Playground

Sad song when I listen, I also reflect on the past...

Very sad and nostalgic song. In my top 10!

One of Madonna's best ballads.

Best vocal I ever heard
