Billboard reviews Hung Up
This is Music Bible Billboard magazine about Madonna’s first single from her Confessions On A Dance Floor.
The queen of reinvention has achieved the seemingly impossible yet again.
In the footsteps of her least successful album ever, 2003’s preachy, melody-breaching “American Life,” Madonna returns with a song that will restore faith among her minions, fans of pop music and radio programmers. “Hung Up” is pure distraction: frothy and nonsensical and joyous.
With an extravagant sample of ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” the song delivers instant familarity, but Stuart Price and Madonna add a chug-along groove and singalong call to arms that build “Hung Up” into its own worthy creation.
Yes, Madonna, we still believe in the beat.
