Today’s Song Of The Day has been on repeat at MP! HQ all weekend (yep, we’re even here on the weekends…) and is the first song released from Madonna’s upcoming MDNA album that’s almost as poptastic as some of her older classics.
‘I F****d Up’ is a stirring midtempo ballad with a driving beat, William Orbit-approved swirly strings and synths and simple, reflecting lyrics that seem to touch on M’s recent failed marriage. The melody is a complete copy cat of her own song ‘Substitute For Love’ , but manage to stick it out to the 2 minute mark and you’ll be rewarded when suddenly the tempo increases, the beat gets harder and the song completely transforms into a true Ray Of Light moment.
It’s still not a life-changing track, but it’s the best example we’ve seen so far that Madonna’s still got it in her. Listen to ‘I F****d Up’ below.
