Joan of arc should of been a music single from RH!

  • Posted 12 October 2017 - 06:20 AM

I'm not sure if this is the right board to post so feel free to move it. Thinking back of all the music singles from the RH album I really think "Joan of arc" should of been a single I love that song so much I think of what the music video would of been.


What other singles do people wish their were from the RH album?

'Messiah'  :hearteyes:


It's one of the best love ballads of her whole career. Too bad it was only included on the deluxe edition.

I personally think Unapologetic Bitch had a very catchy sound and strong lyrics.


But of course one of the best song is Rebel Heart.

I think that album version sucks. The first demo that leaked was everything! It was so simple, just Madonna and orchestra, beautiful melody - this was it. Then she added all those drums, filters etc. and from my favourite became (almost) the only one that I don't like to listen to from the whole album...


Also, I think that "Unapologetic Bitch" should have been a single - but I can't imagine a promo performance with this song, like she did in various TV shows. 

The other ones I would choose as a single are: "Iconic", "Devil Pray", "Illuminati".


But, let's be honest, if "Ghosttown" failed - and it was Madonna's best single since "Hung Up" - was there any other song from "Rebel Heart"  that would make it better?

Joan Of Arc is beautiful, however not the album version which cheapens it massively.

I think she could have made extra singles with videos just to promote the album, or at least a new one to promote the live album, which already dropped out of the charts here in Italy..

The failure of Ghosttown still hurts me, it really does, physically I would say, it is something I will never be able to accept. I really wish her a new no 1 single, as for Cher with Believe.

The first version we heard of "Rebel Heart" (Demo 4) should have been the first single- as well as being on the album!

Considering its only really the first single or 2 that makes an impact I think Bitch I'm Madonna should have been the first single followed by Rebel Heart (original leak or something similar/even more developed) and then Unapologetic Bitch.


Releasing Ghosttown or Living for Love as the 4th single after those would have been good for the fans/videos. Joan of Arc is good but it's too far down the list to be considered imo, same with Iconic. There were a lot of good songs on this album imo, if it were her hey day it would have been a huge success!


I do think Joan of Arc and Ghosttown SHOULD have been on the tour and with big scale performances. So much could have been done with the imagery of those songs. Not to say I'm not happy with the show, I think including more hits was necessary and there is never room for everything.

There are six I would chose or considered. Ghosttown was one of the only songs without a demo and unleaked. Should have been released first, I think it would have done well then. Living for Love is my number one song ever and despite the leaks I would have still gone with the Valentines release. BIM third as it was. The other three would have been Devil Pray, Unapologetic B and Rebel Heart. And for my guilty pleasure, a VMA opening of Holy Water and Devil Oray would have had her name everywhere... Good and bad.

Joan of Arc is a Masterpiece and Single worthy  :heart:

This Song really hit my Heart....


I still think she released the wrong Songs for Single

since the last 10 years...and before sometimes too


It all began with "Spanish Eyes" for Single too

"Messiah" should have been a Christmas/winter single, "Rebel Heart" should had been the lead single, and  "Joan of arc" and "Devil Pray" would also had been great singles, but to be honest IMHO most songs on the album would had made great singles...


Never loose yourself in the hunt for popularity!

ghosttown and Joan of arc are in my top favorites,  also I agree with Rebel Heart would of been great too their are so many songs  i would of liked seen as singles. I think she should update a music dvd with new singles from MDNA and RH I was just thinking that last night.

  • Posted 12 October 2017 - 04:14 PM

oh another one that would be a good single is you can all me m tonight!

  • Posted 12 October 2017 - 05:13 PM

The fact is there are so many beautiful songs in the album, very well written.


What about HeartBreakCity? "then you had the nerve to say that we could still be friends"


Sometimes we tend to forget Inside Out, which was a fan favourite and many were really let down that it was out of the RHT setlist!


I personally like Veni Vidi Vici, maybe cause I teach Latin! :hearteyes:


Many dislike Autotune Baby, but I thought it could have been a great album opener, at least not just put in the Media Markt edition. Of course I'm not talking as a single.


I think Best Night is the worst track.

I don't think Joan of Arc would should've been a single, i don't like the album version, somehow reminds me of Big girls don't cry and i really don't like that song.
Madonna released twenty four songs, in a ideal world she could released at least eight singles.
I don't understand how they thought that Living for love should be the first single and be released during Valentine's day; Ghosttown or Inside out would have been better choices; at least they fit the theme. Nobody knew about ghosttown, it was the unheard new track yet she decided to put in that package in december; bad decision but i think it shows that in her mind it was not a choice, it would be different from the pattern of her latest albums, to release a ballad instead of a dance track as first single.

Personally, I think that once she had the issue with the leaks, she should have released the first single right, then and there, with a lyric video (as those could easily be put together in snap), and left it as that. That said, that isn't what happened.  I really thought "Ghosttown" should have just lead the pack.  And I agree the first single or two are the real impact for albums. So anything after three singles, usually are a waste of money on the artist's part unless they are in high demand on radio and any other medium.  


I really felt "Rebel Heart" should have been a third single.  But other great single material were "Addicted", and "Joan of Arc".

as much as I love Living for love that song is cursed the entire cape issue falling at the britts was so heartbreaking so I wished that song was never a single poor M.

I like the song, but never felt it was anything too special. Seemed more like a gimmick type of song that went wrong. I'm not even referring to the "cape incident".  That unfortunately, could have happened with any song she decided to use a cape. "Ghosttown" and a number of other songs are stronger than "Living For Love".  I think too many people are looking for a "Like A Prayer" 2.  It's never gonna happened.  I remember many were trying to make "Nothing Fails" (which is a great song) was the second coming of "Like A Prayer", but it wasn't.  I feel people and maybe even Madonna was trying to recapture that same magic.  It's not a bad song at all. As said, I like it.  It's just not as memorable and iconic as "Like A Prayer".
