Worst Madonna Pop Songs

Call it a lack of creativity, a slow day at the office if you will or just plain laziness, but Madonna really scrapes the bottom of her shoes with this mess.

Again compiled from Fans shock and horror and my own Nightmares...

The Top Ten

1 Spanish Lesson

Have you ever listened to Spanish Lesson? It may not be her most popular song, but it's a very nice addition to "Hard Candy"

It's not bad! It fits to the album "Hard Candy" - Brxtney

2 Girl Gone Wild

Why? The song has awesome beat to it! - Brxtney

I don't think these lyrics were written by Madonna.
They're so bad and this song is crap!
I want the old Madonna back!

worst madonna song evee

3 Hey You

A total bore

"double jeopardy" from Madonna, two acoustic pop songs that were not very good and again only adds to Madonna's catalogue of bad choices... vocals were less than stellar again for maddy - georgegoony

Boring and useless... This single is the worst of this list (some other songs should be added : Love don't Live here Anymore, Nobody's Perfect, Revolver are perfectly useless too)
I'm really surprised to see that Deeper and deeper is the first song of this top ten! This song is so wonderful, one of her biggest hits of the 90's, don't understand!

I think this song in that list is the worst one. Why? Because She wanted to do Lenon 'Imagine'... But she failed

4 True Blue

Seriously? This is my second favourite (of admittedly not very many, I'm not a fan) Madonna song. It's a nice pop song. - truckturner

It's a great song

WHAT! This was a big hit! It's an awesome song

This was a brilliant song

5 Gang Bang

Hung Up, Get Together, American Life, Revolver, Celebration, 4 Minutes and Holiday shouldn't be in this list. Gang Bang is only bad song from Madonna. It should be #1.

Catchy and brilliant. - Brxtney

This song is too explicit. Bad language and bad influence for the fans.

6 Bitch I'm Madonna

It's just so ridiculous after all she's accomplished to have to make this point...

We all know that she's Madonna but y does she have to make a song about it

This song is TERRIBLE! It should be #1 - littlestpetpet41813

This is the same person that has released Ghost town, Devil Pray and Living For Love on the same album! Definitely prefer those three songs than this one by FAR!

7 Deeper and Deeper

MESS at this classic bop being in the top 5. It's definitely a top 5 in a list of the best Madonna singles, at least of the 90's

I'll pray for your souls.

Deeper and Deeper is a pop-disco masterpiece.

Holy bull was this a shoe scrapper or what... a really awful beginning in maddy's downturn of hits and dull beginnings - georgegoony

American Life is a great song, but this is absolute rubbish! I am so dissapointed in you Madonna. Why Maddy, Why?!?

I can not listen to it on the radio, it's that bad

8 Incredible

This one is not THAT bad, ok... It's just too long and overworked:/ the melody is great, to be honest.

The last two or three minutes should've been cut off.

9 American Pie

Some songs should not be touched and this is one of them. Don McClean's version is classic. I really cannot believe that this doesn't rank higher on the list. I know it was popular in Europe.

10 Material Girl

Heard this garbage playing at the local convenience store and I felt dumber upon leaving.

The Contenders

11 Give Me All Your Luvin'

Nicki Minaj is in it. So understandable.

A weak lead single to promote MDNA and Madonna's comeback.

Nice song to the album "MDNA" - Brxtney

12 Jimmy Jimmy
13 Shoo-Bee-Doo

This is one of my favorites from like a virgin! Whys it on here?!

14 Revolver

This has to be the all time worst Madonna song! She was always a trend setter up until the release of "Hard Candy" when she let the producers du jour Timbaland & Pharrell take control. Though it worked! However this song on her Greatest Hits album does her no favours as being on the same record as all her classics shows up what a weak, forgettable song it truly is!

15 B-Day Song

Why! This song is amazing, one of my favorites from MDNA! It's a cute sweet old school throwback sounding song! I love it!

16 Love Song

I am a very big fan and really love most of her music. This is one of the few songs that I never really warmed up to. In the midst of the amazing Like a Prayer album, this one really stood out as not being up to the same standard as the rest.

Actually I love all the songs which are mentioned here. I think Love Song is the only one which I really hate - Irina2932

The whole Like a prayer album was a masterpiece but this was very simple and borig for me

People warned me about how bad this song was but I did not listen now I regret it so badly very dull song and mediocore lrrics I'm surprissed more people don't hate it

17 Fever

Madonna never did the original song justice, always thought and still do feel it never suited Maddy's vocals... The " Edit 1 " version is a much better investment - georgegoony

Next time there is a horror movie I am going tip the studio to play this scary song before the ghost or killer comes trust me this song will scare the viewers more then the monster HARSH I KNOW BUT TRUTH...

This song is really bad the other songs on erotic were much better like thief of hearts or why it's so hard those were good songs that should have been singles but fever sucks

No bad but I just want get together out of this list get together - awesome fever - okay

18 Die Another Day

Worst. Bond. Song. Ever. - truckturner

19 American Life

Strike No. 1 "DO NOT" rap in your own song Maddy big mistake, leave to the more experienced...

Strike No. 2 Leave well enough alone, keep the original video and destroy the revamped video... the original video would of helped this less than average song... - georgegoony

Too much autotune, weak references to the stereotypical "American life, " and the bridge is one of the most unintentionally hilarious things I've ever heard. Overall awful single. Blender magazine considers it the 9th worst song of all time. I wouldn't go THAT far, but I would agree with spinner.com that claim American Life is the 30th worst song of the decade. Spot on.

Rapping? Come on Madonna. You can't rap. The lyrics are terrible, her voice is awful. The production sis ear piercing. My ears are bleeding just talking about this song.

Madonna stick to what you know best: singing. You can do what ever you want, but please do not release a rap as bad as the rap on American LIFE.

20 One More Chance

Great production and idea for a Madonna song but again maddys less than stellar vocals and a weak melody make for a very boring experience, to say the lest - georgegoony

I think the other songs are all fantastic...

A by the numbers ballad that struggles with awkward lyrics and comparisons with the sweeping, post imperial ‘You’ll See ‘

21 Get Together

Such a boring and overall garbage track (sorry fans of this song). It is the most annoying and the least catchy. I wish History ( Land Of The Free ) should be put instead of this crap worse than the thing I don't like. Show me your praise to this song, no, I can't change my mind. - ilikeyall

The only track I appreciated the least. It should be the track 1 not Hung Up.

Good but my least favourite

starting to warm up to it... but still a very long road ahead... also her performance of this song on a British chat show did nothing for my lack of love of the song - georgegoony

22 Nobody Knows Me

Sorry again Maddy but another tallied up " STINKER " - georgegoony

23 Spanish Eyes

It's a romantic song, show and coló.

24 Ray of Light


I actually like this song! Please, Take off this list! - LapisBob

25 Some Girls

One of the best from "MDNA" - Brxtney

26 Justify My Love

It's just plain and boring

27 S.E.X.

This has to be the worst song in the whole album, it's lazy and has stupid lyrics

28 You Must Love Me

maddy can do slow songs well & very well with the right production but this song just lacks something to make it your typical Madonna classic - georgegoony

This one is amazing

29 Holiday

Personally I think it sounds like a cat being strangled while being runover at the same time and plus I can't get the annoying tune out of my head - thetopten

30 Celebration
31 Hung Up

Hung up is her best. It should not be in this list!

32 I Love New York

Laziest lyrics on any Madonna song. It's so so obvious this was thrown together in a couple of days before the album was finalized.

True the lyrics are crap, with the exception of the "get off my street" part. But in my opinion, this was the most danceable song on the album. Even more than "Hung Up". I can't help myself not to start dancing when I hear this. - theOpinionatedOne

33 Vogue

This shouldn't be on this list but I must say it's catchy as hell and has a sick beat that makes you want to dance

34 Unapologetic Bitch
35 Holy Water

This is just so weird and suggestive/exploitive. Ugh!

36 Nobody's Perfect
37 Hollywood

I actually like this song. - LapisBob

My dog howls and runs for the bedroom closet with even the mere mention of this stinker

" Peaches " even when personally asked by Madonna for a remix, said no way and screamed this song " sucks the biscuit "

... there's no help for this song! - georgegoony

I actually really like this song and it SHOULD NOT be in the top ten list of WORST Madonna songs
I like this song get it out of this list. Please

Actually "Deeper and Deeper" is very nice song. "Hollywood" is the only one I dislike but still Madge is the greatest female artist ever and forever - Alexandr

38 4 Minutes

Another weak song, a duet from madonna & one half of a very pretentious production team( Timberlake & Timberland )... not even the remixes can keep my interest - georgegoony

39 Gone
40 Promise to Try


41 Angel
42 Illuminati

Ok why would you make a song about illuminati? , it's a evil dead overused internet meme now - VideoGamefan5

43 Thief of Hearts
44 Music
45 Future Lovers
46 Don't Tell Me
47 What It Feels Like for a Girl
