Madonna, ”Hung Up”
The website of Canada’s media and pop culture magazine PopJournalism brings a first review of Madonna’s new single that debutes later today on radios all over the world at noon EST, as MTribe reported a few days ago.
“Madonna is back on the comeback trail. After the critical and commercial disappointment of 2003’s American Life – her lowest-selling record to date – Madonna is wisely heading back to the dance floor. “Hung Up” is the first single from her upcoming album Confessions on a Dance Floor.
Lyrically, “Hung Up” is a generic I-will-survive break up song, but fortunately has a killer chorus: “Every little thing that you say or do/ I’m hung up/ I’m hung up on you.”
Madonna’s latest producer du jour, Stuart Price (a.k.a. remixer Jacques Lu Cont) does a nice job of adding French-electro sophistication to the 4/4 beat proceedings. Add those elements up with a clever sample of Abba’s “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme” and you’ve got yourself a sizeable pop hit.
While “Hung Up” doesn’t rank as one of the best Madonna singles, it should more than do the trick in bringing her back near the top of the Billboard Hot 100.”
Thanks to Madonna.nu
