She really did it dirty by not properly performing on the tour. Anyway this is my favourite version:

10. It’s magnificent. Vocally strong, the video was proper old school WOW Madonna, rhe live performances were good (the one with Taylor in awe obviously my favourite).

(Has usual breakdown about 11 in a non-comparative rank, thank you @Penelope for your kind words)

There's something that has always irked me about the way it starts - right before she starts singing. There's some kind of 'clipping' sound.. almost like she's turning the lyric page or something. I like that now though. Whatever it is.

I really love this. My only issue with it is the production on her vocals, which I find takes me out of it a bit.

This is 10/10 and Madonna near her best. This is the sort of stuff she should be doing ALBAM in ALBAM out.

Yes of course we all know it flopped but my casual hetero work colleague at the time said he heard the new Madonna song on the radio and liked it, so clearly it coulda shoulda woulda been a hit

love it . No clue why it wasn’t a mainstay on the tour. But I guess she thought Devil Pray was wanted more .

By whatever means, it's her most effective vocal in years. An exquisite, dusky later day showcase. It will re-chart at #97 when she passes from a fluke accident during a routine face transplant (with Lola).

That will be the adoption brochure.
