Top 10 Madonna Songs

The Top Ten

1 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

I like this song. The choir and the chorus of the song is pretty awesome. - SpinelliFan

2 Vogue

1) living for love
2) vogue
3) girl gone wild
4) la isla bonita
5) like a 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!

Iconic song that is still relevant today, and especially important to the LGBT+ community. An anthem.

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.

3 Frozen

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

A unique song

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

4 Like a Virgin

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.

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".

Have HEARD MANY TIMES, LIKE TO LISTEN AGAIN.

5 La Isla Bonita

My most favourite song of all time. I love this song from my teenage. I had so many sweet memories from this song. It is not just a song it is great melody.

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

This song is beautiful

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

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!

7 Hung 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 with ABBA which makes it even better

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

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

8 Papa Don't Preach

Love this song. ICONIC

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!

9 Borderline

Simply the best pop song ever

The song that introduced me to the Queen of Pop, and still one of her best of all time

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

This song better than some other songs

10 Live to Tell

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

Flawless.

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.

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

1 like a prayer
2 vogue
3 frozen
4 hung up
5 like a virgin
6 ray of light
7 express yourself
8 4 minutes
9 la isla Bonita
10 live to tell

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

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.

12 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!

This song was so great I found myself saying why isn't it 5 minutes

13 Holiday

First hit,should be highter

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

Its once of the classics

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

14 Crazy for You

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

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

One of the best pop ballads of the 80s.

15 Open 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.

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

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.

16 Material Girl

Perfect in every little detail

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!

17 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

Made radio what it is now in 2015

18 You'll See

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

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. - Irina2932

Absolutely her best! It is timeless. - mood333

19 Ray of Light

How is music and hung up higher than this masterpiece - Weirdest-thing

Greatest dance track of all time

Why is this only top 30?! THIS DESERVES TO BE ON TOP 5. This song showed me how wonderful Madonna is as an artist, the same with like a prayer. This song is timeless and is it deserves to be recognized as one of Madonna's best singles EVER

Like a beam of light this song makes me so happy and warm I love this Madonna song I was her best work if you ask love this song and the album vote vote vote for this awesome song

20 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 - Irina2932

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

Naah this song should be top 5... Too awesome

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

21 The 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.

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.

22 Sorry

23 This Used to Be My Playground

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

One of Madonna's best ballads.

Best vocal I ever heard

26 Cherish

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

Romantic, beautiful, sweet song about LOVE

This song is really catchy!

Best Madonna song Eveer

27 Miles 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)...

This is definitely one of Madonna's best songs, severely underrated.

My favourite by Madonna.

28 Jump

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.

29 Till Death Do Us Part

Best Like a prayer's song, it's too ggo, with a wonderful beat, and a sad story to tell.

The best non-single probably. I don't know why this is not performed - it should be on top 20.

Gorgeous Lyrics

30 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?

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

Must be top 10 alteast

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

31 American Pie

I think this should be at least in top ten

32 Human Nature

Truly gorgeous, by far the best from the somewhat underwhelming Bedtime Stories.

33 Burning Up
34 Revolver
35 Ghosttown

This should be in the top 20s

Best song in the album!

One of best Madonna's song's.

This song is powerful

36 Secret

Madonna hit single from the bedtimestories album it is a very good song if you ask me at least the beat has yet to become outdated like songs from the 80's era people need to let go from 30 years ago better single by madona

37 Erotica

Madonna at her best

GREAT SONG BEST OF THE Madonna 90'S

Great

Even though it was aa very minor hit I think everypone loved this dirty hit of the nities that was a really good club song
Much much much better then justify my love!

38 Words
39 Justify 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

Amazing song. Madonna's vocal delivery is stunning. This song is so sexy, the video's even sexier.

This is my imagination in 5 five minutes!

40 Who's That Girl

Agree with previous, this is far too low. Still sounds good today!

How is this song this low? Is this a joke. Number 81?!

One of the best Madonna songs and is no. 81. Really?

I agree! It deserves to be in the top 10!

41 Don't Tell Me

Her best song ever

My favorite song by Madonna! It should be in the top ten! Great hook and great lyrics - Lowmax

Great lyrics and amazing production; it's like a sonic country song. - TheMarkA1996

42 I'll Remember

Please get this top 25!

43 Devil Pray

SO GOOD - Brxtney

44 Drowned World / Substitute for Love

Her voice at it's best

A very heart touching song and it deserves more votes

Very beautiful meaningfull amazong and heart touching song+ beautiful music video and Madonna. One of her best songs (she has like 30 best songs xdd) but this song is very different and it's working on my emotions.

45 Bad Girl

Definitely one of the most beautiful ballads from the 90's and Madonna herself. Very nice and melodious sound and brilliant music video only makes this track look more special - Irina2932

"Bad Girl" is ridiculously underrated! It was one of the best songs on Erotica and one of her best from the 90's. - theOpinionatedOne

Fantastic song! And yes - it's so underrated!

46 Illuminati

Totally catchy and should be on the list - JaysTop10List

47 Why's It So Hard?
48 What It Feels Like for a Girl
49 Celebration

Should be number one in my opinion, I can listen to this nonstop and never get bored. Excellent song!

No. 1 in my list. So upbeat.

No one can ever get bored of listening to this song I bet people will listen to even in 2050

Its simply her best song.
Don't understand why its down here.
It simply shows voters have no idea what is music!

50 X-Static Process

I always wish that I could find
Someone as talented as you
But in the process I forgot
I was special too... This song is amazing
