    Old madonna.com goodies

    A couple of weeks ago I was using this web archive site that allows us to revisit old versions of sites we know. Of course I tried to load the old version of madonna.com as I used to visit it on a regular basis when I was a kid (between 2001 and 2003). Unfortunately not all the elements are able to be seen, especially audios and videos, but some are still available like wallpapers and small files. I want to share with you the ones I could manage to download A flash intro: [Hidden Content] A screensaver: [Hidden Content] And some wallpapers from the GHV1 era and the English Roses: [Hidden Content] I hope you enjoy them

    I really really really wanna believe it's true she's working with Mirwais again, and i really hope it's true. Best news in a while. U guys know, because i've said it a 1000 times, AL is one of my Top 3 M albums and it's very close to my heart. I'll never forget the 1st time i listened to it, and how i cried with a mixture of joy/sadness/happiness since the moment NF started until XP finished. Those 3 are a diamond to me. I love them. Just thinking they could do something like these songs again, melts my heart.

    or Paradise (Not for Me) or Future Lovers or Impressive Instant or Love Profusion or Azza or Ma Rida or Disco Science or any song he made with her or on his own album. He has a way of playing with sound that is missing from modern music. Liquid rhythms, and personified synthesizers... The manipulation of space, the clarity of each and every sound. He just understands sound completely. I could really talk all day about his production. I also fully trust him with Madonna vocals. Gawd I hope its a double album Im so fucking happy right now!!

    well, u r entitled to YOUR opinion. In MY opinion, Hard Candy has some really great tunes like 4 Minutes, Give It 2 Me, Heartbeat, Miles Away, She's Not Me, Beat Goes On, Devil or Voices. But i guess it's hard to live up to the expectations of some nostalgic fans... Sue me.

    I think that's super interesting. I love pretty much everything Mirwais and Madonna did together in the past (as well as his work on the Y.A.S. project in 2009) and he never became this go-to mainstream producer like Orbit or Stuart Price so his sound has never become ubiquitous. Yay!

    Kylie Minogue - "Golden"

    Apparently. I haven’t heard differently regarding the clear vinyl or picture disc, but the black vinyls do have this version. I’m not sure if it’s a mistake and will be fixed with future prints, so it’s hard to say just how rare this mix will be overall. Someone on SayHey mentioned that Justin has sold almost 50k in the two months since his release, and Kylie is not that far behind after only a week. I think it’s safe to say that anyone who complains/complained about the campaign and K’s noticeability should exit stage left. The curtain has closed.

    #9 | Music Maverick/Warner Bros. (2000) Revisited by Chris Lacy As the calendar switched from 1999 to 2000, Madonna found herself competing against the resurgence of bubblegum pop (Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Britney Spears, and Ricky Martin, among others). Her reentry into this new music scene was difficult to predict, but if there’s one redeeming quality about the then-21-year veteran, it’s her ability to adapt and overcome. Music was a return to basics that “feels as effortless as the dance-pop of her Ciccone youth,” raved Spin Magazine. “Music” and “Impressive Instant” are sonically explosive songs that represent a new millennium techno-funk, elevating Madonna head and shoulders above her pretenders, even at this advanced stage in her career. While there’s certainly an unabashedly retro nature exuding from the sharp, edgy rhythm tracks, the rich soulfulness of “Don’t Tell Me,” “What It Feels Like for a Girl,” and “Gone” balance the tempo out, granting more room for her to experiment with rock, country, and folk. For an album that ranked No. 452 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Music is hardly recognized as an exceptional pop record among casual music listeners. However, Madonna’s eighth studio offering is a veritable treasure trove of underrated material and loaded with seductive eclecticism, hypnotic textures, and thick grooves.

    I disagree. It's Madonna in her peak. Nothing can be compared to this era. It's revolutionary, has all the iconic hits Like a Prayer, Express Yourself, Vogue. First modern concert tour, iconic looks, tour movie. Please let me know which other "era" has more?! Hard candy? MDNA? lol

This time, we're speaking about the role Bono will play as well as several other musical heavies in the tribute album Motown is putting together to honor soulful singer and domestic-violence statistic Marvin Gaye. It's gonna be big, as you can imagine. That's why Bono has good company in Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Neneh Cherry, Lisa Stansfield, Public Enemy, Digable Planets, Marvin's daughter Nona Gaye, and assorted others. The album, "Inner City Blue: The Music of Marvin Gaye," will be released in September. Amazingly, Michael Bolton who's made a career out of stealing sheet music wasn't even asked to participate. And who'll sing what? Bono and Marvin will croon a duet of "Save the Children" while Madonna who has been recording at Eddie Germano's Hit Factory will be joined by the Brit rap-reggae-hip hop-klezmer group Massive Attack on "I Want You." Stevie Wonder will sing "Stubborn Kind of Fellow." Public Enemy promises to take "Inner City Blues" to a new depth while Nona Gaye would do her papa proud with her version of "Time to Get It Together." Rounding out the album are Stansfield's "Just to Keep You Satisfied," Cherry's "Troubleman," Rosie Gaine's "Distant Lover" and Speech from Arrested Development will do right to the anthem "What's Going On." He'd better. So far, we haven't yet heard through the grapevine who will sing "Heard It Through the Grapevine." Look for a TV special to follow. (NY Daily News) March 13: After 10 years with CAA, Madonna changes agents by signing with the William Morris Agency. March 15: Madonna is signed to star as the late Eva Peron in film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical Evita. March 16: Madonna’s The Immaculate Collection was certified 6x platinum (6 million units) in the USA. Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine (allmusic.com): On the surface, the single-disc hits compilation The Immaculate Collectionappears to be a definitive retrospective of Madonna’s heyday in the ’80s. After all, it features 17 of Madonna’s greatest hits, from Holiday and Like a Virgin to Like a Prayer and Vogue. However, looks can be deceiving. It’s true that The Immaculate Collection contains the bulk of Madonna’s hits, but there are several big hits that aren’t present, including Angel, Dress You Up, True Blue, Who’s That Girl and Causing a Commotion. The songs that are included are frequently altered. Everything on the collection is remastered in Q-sound, which gives an exaggerated sense of stereo separation that often distorts the original intent of the recordings. Furthermore, several songs are faster than their original versions and some are faded out earlier than either their single or album versions, while others are segued together. In other words, while all the hits are present, they’re simply not in their correct versions. Nevertheless, The Immaculate Collection remains a necessary purchase, because it captures everything Madonna is about and it proves that she was one of the finest singles artists of the ’80s. Until the original single versions are compiled on another album, The Immaculate Collection is the closest thing to a definitive retrospective.

How can I be sure, where is this road I’ve chosen taking me? I’m pure.

Everything carries me to you, as if everything that exists, aromas, light, metals, or little boats that sail towards those isles of yours that wait for me. Well now, if little by little you stop loving me, I shall stop loving you, little by little. If suddenly you forget me, do not look for me for I shall already have forgotten you. If you think at long and mad the wind banners that passes through my life and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, remember than on that day, at that hour I shall lift my arms and my roots will set off to seek another land. But if each day each hour you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness. If each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me, ah my love, ah my own, in me all that fire is repeated, in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, my love feeds on your love beloved, and as long as you live in will be in your arms without leaving mine. https://todayinmadonnahistory.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/il-postino-the-postman-soundtrack.jpg

    Albumism Selects: Madonna’s 10 Greatest Albums Ranked & Revisited November 21, 2017 Albumism Staff http://www.albumism.com/lists/madonna-10-greatest-albums-ranked-and-revisited Next summer marks two noteworthy events in the divine Madonna Louise Ciccone’s personal and professional narrative. First, July 2018 will see her global legion of fans commemorating the 35th anniversary of her eponymous debut album’s arrival. The following month, the world will unite in celebration of her 60th birthday, while collectively—and incredulously—swearing that “there’s no way Madonna is 60!” Here at Albumism, we celebrate Madonna’s musical and cultural legacy every day, and the specific milestone dates simply punctuate our unyielding passion for her indelible songcraft. Hence why we recently decided to submit our individual votes for the 10 greatest studio albums in her prolific canon, the consensus rankings of which appear below. We fully recognize that this is a blatantly subjective exercise, as most lists are. But we also hope that our selections inspire some healthy debate among our fellow Madonna enthusiasts, while rekindling our readers’ most vivid, cherished memories of her many wonderful albums.

    I know it is impossibile, but Interscope should release an EP with all his remixes of the Rebel Heart tracks. In many cases these demos are better than the finished versions. It would save his legacy forever in his work with Madonna.

    I would like Pat Leonard to write song with Madonna again but not producing them or not alone. As on Ray of light he works with William Orbit and production is definitely an Orbit prod. P. Leonard is an amazing melodist before everything !
  32. 4 points
    This is hilarious to read. From the mouths of fans who are dying to have Patrick Leonard work with her again, and then some go ape shit over her possibly reuniting with Mirwais. So in other words, you have no confidence in Madonna? A woman who has gave us 35 plus years of great music. And yes, I totally understand that we have fans who like specific eras better than others. But isn't that what makes her so great? She can dabble back and forth in music, and appeal to different people. And isn't that what we want of Madonna? Not someone who sticks to the same sounds and shtick all the time. Isn't it possible she's not looking at it from a "successful" standpoint? After all, she's going to be 60 years old. She's only going to appeal to mostly her hardcore fans at this point. In this ageist society, the music industry and mainstream buying/listening public will not give her the time of day, no matter how great the music is. So many people criticize how crappy the music is today (which is successful), so what is she to do? Team up with those people to guarantee success? Oh no, then you'll have a whole crop of fans, saying she's not being "ahead of the curve" or just "jumping on the bandwagon". I mean she can't win can she? How dare she decide to go back to a producer which isn't that well known apart from the work they did together. Madonna is no dummy! Obviously, she knows Mirwais isn't the "current sound" people are clutching their pearls for. Just look at his track record. So I say again, it's quite possible that she's not concerning herself of the "success" factor since she knows the current music climate isn't her taste. Remember, it wasn't long ago, she complained of the current "writing camps" and the fact no one can sit in a studio for very long to finish an album together. Obviously, he is available and someone she thinks can bring together a French sound she's looking for. It's no secret she wants to dabble in the French sounds that's influenced her in Portugal as of late. That all said; no matter who she works with, there will be a crop of fans who will criticize her. It's funny. It's like we go through this with every album anymore. Some just never she faith in Madonna when she's proven in the past over and over again, she can deliver. It may not appeal to all fans, but we've already established that she's quite polarizing and some fans just enjoy certain eras. Me? I actually love all her eras. Sure there are a few clunkers, but that's my opinion. I know there are many who enjoy the clunkers I don't. Most importantly, I let her do her work. I don't question it. It may not be a huge hit record, but I'm not interested in that. I'm just interested in her artistic expression. I'm looking forward to what she has to say and hearing her voice again. It's her record. It's her passion. I prefer her to do what she wants to do, not what some fans think is better for her. Besides, when has she ever done that? NEVER! All I know is that Mirwais and her have come together and produced a lot of different and terrific music. If I had no concept of who he was or who she worked with, I would have never thought the same guy who produced "Music" (the song) is the same guy who helped produce "Don't Tell Me" or "Future Lover" or even "It's So Cool". Everyone of those songs are so different from one another. And no doubt, she's going to probably bring in a few other people to help craft whatever sound she's going for. So I wait and anticipate for her next album. It will be AWESOME!!!

    Orbit's stuff is the only thing that saves MDNA from being a complete middle of the road EDM nightmare. Mirwais may not be a fresh face but he's certainly an unexpected choice. Anyway, part of me also thinks Madonna may simply be trolling us with that #mirwais hashtag!

    Kylie Minogue - "Golden"

    After a week with Golden, I can safely say it’s definitely one of my favorites from her. She really delivered and I’m such a proud stan. I still can’t pinpoint favorites. It’s too difficult. I don’t think I’ve ever had that happen with a Kylie album. There were definite standouts when I first listened (Lost Without You, Golden, Radio On), but now the entire album (deluxe tracks included) just doesn’t sound right if I skip any of the tracks. I almost find myself realizing the end of the album is near and I still want more. It’s perfect as is, but I wish it went on and on. The production may not always be on point, and we’re not so accustomed to having lightly produced vocals, but the lyrics and her delivery are what make Golden, golden. I have an entirely new appreciation for Dancing and SMFF after listening to the album as a whole and I’m glad she wasn’t holding herself back or hesitant to try something new. The country influence isn’t subtle at times, but it is straight up camp and the album is completely Kylie. Not country Kylie, just Kylie. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    The only experimental part on Bedtime Stories was towards the end of the album being Sanctuary and Bedtime Story. The other songs were RnB influenced and representitive of the early mid 90s. The reason she went in that direction was to soften her image due to SEX and apparently going to far. Being a 90's baby and living in this decade is to me laughable now looking back. Don't get me wrong I love Bedtime Stories. The two songs I just mentioned and I'd Rather Be Your Lover, Take A Bow, Human Nature, Secret and Survival are my choice cuts from the album. I hasten to add that I was quite shocked that Your Honestly was also omitted from the album as that song is amazing. However to call it experimental is a tad to far. I guess it was experimental in terms of going to the oppostie field of what Madonna was known for but the album as a whole not so. Erotica was much more of an experimental album in terms of concept, lyrics and image that unfortunately got lost blinded at the time by SEX. A review I read somewhere said something along the lines of "Madonna at her most important" and I truly agree with that as the album was released during a very volatile period with HIV & AIDS not being talked about and gay men getting the boot unfairly for it.

    Kylie Minogue - "Golden"

    Maybe I need a couple more listens but so far at least half of this album sounds bland as hell to me and I'm beginning to think that this outpour of affection for this record has more to do with a relief that it doesn't suck outright rather than it being a truly great album.

    #7 | Erotica Maverick/Sire/Warner Bros. (1992) Revisited by Justin Chadwick Far less shocking—or stimulating—to the senses by today’s more desensitized standards, to say that Erotica was controversial upon its release 25 years ago is an understatement. But the flip side of the coin is that it was an undeniably revolutionary record. The unabashed and forthright way that Madonna redefines sexual identity and power dynamics, deconstructs sexual taboos, and evangelizes sexual freedom was indeed groundbreaking for its time, serving as a much-needed wake-up call for the sexually repressed and repressive, particularly here in the notoriously puritanical United States of America. Across Erotica’s fourteen compositions (thirteen on the LP’s edited version), Madonna successfully subverts the antiquated, straight-male dominated dialogue about sex by taking full command of the conversation and delivering a clinic in sexual liberation. With confidence and charisma in droves, she flips traditional gender-driven roles and ethics on their head, blurs the socially-constructed lines between the multitude of sexual identities that exist, and gives mainstream voice and validation to those traditionally marginalized toward the fringes of social acceptance. And while Erotica is a concept album of the most captivating caliber, whether you share or empathize with Madonna’s perspective or not, its thematic thrust all too often overshadows its importance within the context of its creator’s musical progression. Though her self-titled 1983 debut Madonna certainly incorporated club-driven inspirations, Erotica is the first of Madonna’s long players that found her wholeheartedly embracing the hedonism and influences derived from the dancefloor, an exciting evolution shepherded (pun intended) by co-producer Shep Pettibone that would be further cemented in increasingly glorious ways on subsequent efforts such as Bedtime Stories (1994), Ray of Light (1998) and Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005). Just as refreshing and rewarding musically as it was for its brave social and cultural conscience as best evidenced by tracks like the euphoric “Deeper and Deeper” and poignant “In This Life,” Erotica was, is, and will forever be a fearlessly fierce album that only Madonna could make. No one has ever come close to replicating it and no one ever will. In Vanity Fair’s October 1992 issue, Madonna proclaimed, “I’m out to open [people’s] minds and get them to see sexuality in another way. Their own and others.’” More than any other album in her prolific oeuvre, Erotica fulfilled her objective and struck a mighty blow to the plague of cultural and moral myopia, in America and beyond.

    THE PLAIN FACT IS and we all need to just get the fuck over it lol. TODAY IS TODAY. 2005 was 2005. 1998 was 1998. 1980s were 1980s. Things change. People change. Trends change. Music production changes. So yeah... we can’t really say “oh it should be done like how it was in year/decade ______” Like um.... NO miss Thing! The present is the present and we just have to accept whatever comes along. We don’t have control so we might as well let go of it and many other usual expextations we have of M before a new era. So yeah... just let it will be kitty girls

Anyway, if you need help with something just tell me. I have all these releases (even the promos and vinyl ones). Just tell me ;) There are three compilations of "MTV Party To Go" that have Madonna songs remixed. I don't know if they are mixed of not. Later I will play them to tell you. I know in two of them they use a "Human nature" remix and the other one has "Express yourself" (I think "The Immaculate Collection" version. I'll tell you as soon as I listen them to be sure.

Madonna Interview : Vogue (October 1996) https://allaboutmadonna.com/madonna-interviews/madonna-interview-vogue-october-1996 http://allaboutmadonna.com/images/madonna-library/1996-madonna-vogue.jpg October 8: Madonna’s You Must Love Me music video premiered on MTV. You Must Love Me was released by Warner Bros. as the first single from the Evita soundtrack. The song was written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and it won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1997. Madonna filmed the music video for You Must Love Me on 31 August 1996 in California, while she was eight months pregnant with her daughter Lourdes. Madonna stood behind a piano to hide her pregnancy. October 14: Madonna gives birth to a 6-lb, 9-oz girl, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, at Good Samaritan Hospital, Los Angeles, CA. October 15: Madonna appeared on the cover of the New York Post, with the caption: It’s a girl! Healthy 6lb. 9oz. BABY Lourdes was born the previous day – you can read about @ https://todayinmadonnahistory.com/2016/10/14/today-in-madonna-history-october-14-1996/ https://todayinmadonnahistory.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/october-15-1996-ny-post.jpg October 18: Madonna’s greatest ballads collection, Something To Remember was certified 2x platinum (2 million units) in the USA. October 22: Madonna’s You Must Love Me (the lead single from Evita) reached #18 on the Billboard Hot 100. October 27: Madonna’s You Must Love Me (the lead single from Evita) was released. Kathleen Guerdo’s review for Billboard: “Madonna delivers what is by far one of the strongest vocal performances of her career, comfortably scaling to the song’s demanding soprano heights while infusing it with delicate, heart-rending emotion. This bodes well for the creative potency of the rest of the soundtrack, which is due Nov. 14. Prepare for wall-to-wall airplay of this flawless ballad on pop and AC radio.” October 28: Madonna was featured on the cover of People Magazine. The story focused on the birth of her first child, Lourdes Maria Ciccone. Labor of Love After 12 Exhausting Hours, Madonna Gives Birth to Healthy Baby Girl Lourdes Maria Ciccone. IT IS A WONDERFUL TIME FOR A woman, that moment when she realizes a new life is within her, stirring, growing, forcing her to think about eventually removing her gold belly-button ring. For Madonna, that revelation came in Buenos Aires last March during the shoot for the musical Evita, when she learned that, after years of talking on the Late Show with David Letterman and in similar intimate venues about trying to get pregnant, she was finally tangoing for two. Delighted but already feeling protective of her unborn child, she at first spoke of the situation only to her sister, her personal trainer and, of course, to the baby’s father, Carlos Leon. But secrets about Madonna seldom stay kept. By the time she checked into Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles last week, there were tofu merchants in Bali who knew she was leaning away from a C-section, and the paparazzi, like contractions, were arriving every few minutes. It was not an easy birth. Madonna’s labor began at 3:30 a.m. last Monday morning. Leon and the singer’s sister Melanie Henry, a musicians’ manager in Los Angeles, were with her through the night. But by noon the next day the only thing that had arrived was an intense hunger. “Ugh,” said Madonna, 38, from her bed in the labor room. “I just want some french fries from McDonald’s.” Her Plan A had been to have natural childbirth with the soundtrack of a romantic 1988 Alan Rudolph film called The Moderns playing. By 3:30 Monday afternoon, however, Madonna was still in pain but showing no signs of progress, and her doctor suggested a cesarean. She reluctantly agreed and soon found herself heavily sedated and being wheeled toward the delivery room. “Goodbye, everyone,” she said. “I’m going to get my nose job now.” From that point on, things proceeded smoothly. Her daughter, weighing 6 lbs. 9 ozs. and sporting a full head of black hair just like her father’s, was born at 4:01 p.m. No, the baby’s name is not Lola—one of the many false rumors preceding the birth. Madonna had said she needed to see her child before coming up with a proper name—and after taking one look, she pronounced the girl Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon. No hyphen, no worries, no doubt about it. “This is,” Madonna told PEOPLE, “the greatest miracle of my life.” Leon, meanwhile, seemed just as ecstatic when he stepped out of the delivery room moments after the birth. “She’s the most beautiful baby!” he said, grinning broadly, to a group that included Madonna’s manager Caresse Norman, publicist Liz Rosenberg and several friends and personal security guards. Later, Leon was seen blissfully wandering the corridors in a T-shirt reading, “I Got My First Hug at Good Samaritan Hospital.” For a woman who once published a picture book called Sex and scandalized millions by simulating masturbation onstage, Madonna has segued into this current stage of her life quite smoothly. Over the last few months, photos of her showed a face that was fuller and more serene. She had been sonogrammed (It’s a girl!), steeped in Dr. Spock et al (“Which baby book haven’t I read?”), and baby-showered by Rosie O’Donnell and their mutual pals (“The whole world wants to give me advice”). True, in what seemed a classic Madonna touch, her pediatrician turned out to be Paul Fleiss, father of Hollywood madam Heidi. Yet Madonna herself has lately exuded a maternal glow, and the idea of her executing pelvic thrusts anywhere outside a Lamaze class seemed, for the moment, unthinkable. Certainly she approached maternity in mature fashion. “We talked about having children while we were making A League of Their Own,” says Rosie O’Donnell. “Both of us lost our mothers at an early age, and so being a mom was important to us.” After Evita wrapped in May, Madonna, who was 5 when her mother died, put her pink Hollywood Hills mansion on the market and bought a more baby-friendly, single-story house in lower profile Los Feliz. For a while, the nursery has been ready for its raison d’être. The room, decorated in soft florals, has a crib and a changing table piled high with stuffed animals—some given to her, some purchased, then tossed on the heap. Says Madonna’s younger brother, video director Christopher Ciccone: “There’s a certain serenity in her newfound chaos.” There has also been much joy. “She’s been in a great mood,” says her trainer Ray Kybartas. The first time she felt the baby kick, in May, Madonna says, “I felt like laughing out loud.” During the amniocentesis that same month, “she was very emotional,” says manager Norman. “When Madonna watched the monitor and saw the needle go in, there may have even been a tear on her cheek.” Until labor started, Madonna says, she had a relatively easy nine months. She never had morning sickness, and except for a craving for poached eggs in her fourth month, she didn’t have much trouble adhering to her usual low-fat diet. As for working out, she did an almost daily hour of aerobics and some weight training with Kybartas, who adds that “we also did a lot of stretching, especially leg work that would help her in the delivery room.” In her last month, she cut back from six sessions a week to three. One part of her life she hasn’t phased out is Leon, 30, the handsome personal trainer and aspiring actor she met while running in Central Park two years ago. Despite reports of their breakup, the pair are living together, though Madonna dodges the question of how involved Leon will be in raising their child. “He is definitely in the picture,” says publicist Rosenberg. Madonna lately has displayed a strong sense of family. Two weeks ago she had dinner at her home with Leon, Christopher, sister Melanie and her 6-year-old son Levon. Afterward she did something that one relative says he hasn’t seen her do in years: the dishes. Now that she’s a mother, she has no plans beyond doting on her baby. Because of problems with a stalker last year, Madonna says she won’t be releasing a baby picture soon and “I won’t be doing anything in public with my daughter until she’s much older.” Rosie O’Donnell assured her life will be different. “I told her,” she says, “it’s going to change her in the best possible way.” With Lourdes Maria on her hip, Madonna’s wants are few. “I just can’t wait,” she says laughingly, “to wear anything with a waistline.” Written by Todd Gold https://todayinmadonnahistory.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/m-oct-28-96-a.jpg https://todayinmadonnahistory.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/m-oct-28-96-b.jpg https://todayinmadonnahistory.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/m-oct-28-96-c.jpg October 28: Madonna interview : People (October 28 1996) https://allaboutmadonna.com/madonna-interviews/madonna-interview-people-october-28-1996 http://allaboutmadonna.com/images/madonna-library/1996-madonna-people.jpg October 29: "You Must Love Me" single (from Evita) is released.

Director Alan Parker had this to say about working with Madonna on EVITA: “The hardest work that anyone had to do was obviously done by Madonna. She had the lion’s share of the piece, singing as she does on almost every track. Many of the songs were comfortably within her range, but much of the score was in a range where her voice had never ventured before. Also, she was determined to sing the score as it was written and not to cheat in any way”. November 12: Evita: The Complete Motion Picture Music Soundtrack 2-CD set is released. November 15: Madonna appears via telephone call from Rosie O'Donnell on CBS-TV's The Rosie O'Donnell Show. November 16: Madonna’s You Must Love Me debuted at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA. You Must Love Me was the first single released from the EVITAsoundtrack. The track was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Jay’s Note: The success of this single is proof that Madonna’s power over radio and sales was un-stoppable. Imagine a song like this becoming a hit at radio and retail today? Not possible! November 18: Something To Remember is certified 2x platinum (2 million units). November 18: In the United Kingdom, Something to Remember debuted at number three on the UK Albums Chart on November 18, 1995. It dropped to number four in its second and third week, spending twelve consecutive weeks in the top ten before falling to number 11 on February 2, 1996.

According to Carol Clerk's book Madonnastyle, the soundtrack has sold a total of 11 million copies worldwide. December 3: "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" video premieres on VH1. December 4: Madonna was honoured with the Artist Achievement Award at the 7th annual Billboard Music Awards at the Aladdin Hotel Theatre For The Performing Arts in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was Madonna’s first public appearance since the birth of her daughter Lourdes. December 5: The Making of Evita book was released. The introduction was written by Madonna. Director Alan Parker wrote about the the trials, tribulations and triumphs he and the cast endured to bring the musical to the big screen. Here’s an excerpt from Alan Parker’s essay on the making of Evita: For fifteen years I watched as the film of Evita was about to be made, and the various press releases were printed in the media. I have been furnished with the various news clippings from those years, and would first like to mention the stars that would supposedly be starring in the film. They include: Elaine Paige, Patti LuPone, Charo, Raquel Welch, Ann-Margret, Bette Midler, Meryl Streep, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Diane Keaton, Olivia Newton-John, Elton John, John Travolta, Pia Zadora, Meat Loaf, Elliott Gould, Sylvester Stallone, Barry Gibb, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, Mariah Carey, Jeremy Irons, Raul Julia and Michelle Pfeiffer. And then there were the directors: Ken Russell, Herb Ross, Alan Pakula, Hector Babenco, Francis Coppola, Franco Zeffirelli, Michael Cimino, Richard Attenborough, Glenn Gordon Caron and Oliver Stone. So why didn’t it get made until now? And with none of the individuals mentioned above? I’m sure I don’t know. All I do know is that all those years, I sort of regretted saying no to Robert in that dusty street. So I was glad that everything came full circle when I was asked to make the film again by Robert Stigwood and Andy Vajna at the end of 1994. When I began work on the film, the incumbent actress to play Evita was Michelle Pfeiffer. She had waited such a long time to do the film that she had even had a baby in the meantime. I met with Michelle, whom I greatly admire, and it was clear that with two small children she wasn’t about to embark on the long Lewis and Clark journey I had in mind—a long way from the comfort of nearby Hollywood sound stages. While spending Christmas in England in 1994, I received out of the blue a letter from Madonna. (I had developed a remake of The Blue Angel with her some years previously, but it had bitten the Hollywood dust.) Her handwritten, four-page letter was extraordinarily passionate and sincere. As far as she was concerned, no one could play Evita as well as she could, and she said that she would sing, dance and act her heart out, and put everything else on hold to devote all her time to it should I decide to go with her. And that’s exactly what she did do. (Well, she didn’t put everything on hold, as she did get pregnant before we finished filming).

December 21: Madonna’s You Must Love Me (the lead single from EVITA) spent its final week on Billboard’s Hot 100 Airplay Chart in the USA. The hit single spent a total of 9 weeks on the chart. Peter Keough of the Boston Phoenix had this to say about the song: “You Must Love Me is an aching farewell that dispels the illusion of a romance-of-convenience to reveal the inescapable love and tragedy beneath”. December 23: Madonna completes her world tour of Evita premieres in Madrid, Spain and returns home to US for the Christmas holidays. December 25: EVITA was given a limited released in New York and Los Angeles. Wide release for the film followed on January 10, 1997. Critic Zach Conner commented: “It’s a relief to say that EVITA is pretty damn fine, well-cast, and handsomely visualized. Madonna once again confounds our expectations. She plays Evita with a poignant weariness and has more than just a bit of star quality. Love or hate Madonna-Eva, she is a magnet for all eyes.” Newsweek ’s David Ansen wrote: “It’s gorgeous. It’s epic. It’s spectacular. But two hours later, it also proves to be emotionally impenetrable.” December 29: Evita grosses $334,440 during its Christmas holiday release in New York and Los Angeles. December 30: Madonna is named one of the "25 Most Intriguing People In The World For 1996" by People magazine.
