From Swim to Frozen
We’ve been receiving many messages of readers congratulating for the Jamie King interview. We would like to remind the Tribers who haven’t read it already to check it out by clicking on the “Flex” image below.
Here’s an interesting excerpt of the interview in which we discover that the “FleX” footage by Chris Cunningham was original cut to the music of Swim.
MadonnaTribe: Some songs in the setlist did change quite late though. I’m referring to “I’m So Stupid”.
Jamie King: Yes, “I’m So Stupid” was a big challenge.
The third song in the set list was a big challenge. It ended up being “Frozen” but it was originally “I’m So Stupid”.
I Love that song. And fought and fought to have that song in there and we all wanted it to be in there but it just musically would not work out. Madonna is an artist and she’s got to feel the songs flowing together and for her musically just couldn’t work out.
And I’m very happy it ended up being “Frozen” because it’s a great song.
Actually it had gone from “Frozen” to another song which was “Swim” from “Ray of Light” and then it went back to “Stupid” and then one day I was listening to “Frozen” in my car and I said “You know Madonna I think it should be Frozen” and it was put together and it just worked perfectly.
And with the images that we had on the screen which were originally cut to “Swim”, they worked really well for “Frozen”.
MT: Oh, the Chris Cunningham footage?
JK: Exactly. It had to be recut but it ended up with the same feeling. Actually it was better to “Frozen”.
