I quite like Madge not a huge fan though, I don't think anyone can deny that she recorded some very good songs over the years.

She is one of the biggest and most influential stars around today..no doubt about it... more influential than M Jackson.... in my opinion of course.

Cyndi was a much better singer, a real talent vocally. I thought she would be the bigger star. Credit Madonna for knowing how to promote herself with her limited musical ability.


Spot on.

Some people don't get the appeal of Elvis or heaven forbid even Bruce Springsteen. :wink:
It takes all kinds.

Plus, if you had any semblance of knowledge about her career, you would know how absurd the notion of "her limited musical ability" actually is.

Anyway, you got thanked by Epicurus, so you should be chuffed.


My one distinct memory of Madonna was a long time ago, she sang live on one of the ridiculous tv music award shows. Cannot remember the show or the year, but she sang WITHOUT lip synching. She was awful, monotone, and completely off key. Thus my assessment of her limited musical ability. I don't think I ever saw her sing live again after that. It was always to a pre-recorded track. I stand by opinion. To compare her to Bruce, a great songwriter and musician is nuts. He is no great vocalist, but he is no fake either.

I know what I saw. But you are a fan of hers, so I understand you stance. I also went to a TV taping where Lauper sang with Patti LaBelle and she outbelted her. Amazing vocal talent.
Sorry but Madonna couldn't hold her own with real vocalists like that.

You should start a Cyndi Lauper thread... perhaps including footage from that kick-ass doc she made?

Wait a minute...

Well as I have noted, she never became the big star Madonna did. But she has a Broadway play now (just opened to great reviews) so she still has a career going.

r&b,

I wouldn't waste your time replying to him, he just started this topic so he can provoke people into having a fight with him, he keeps having a childish pop at me just cause i don't agree with him and he seems to be doing the same thing to you.

Just ignore him.

An average white disco singer / stripper who found fame by sleeping her way to the top. Gloria Brannigan was better, God rest her soul.

No probs, Ken. It's an awesome performance. [N.B. note how she does a little bit of the moonwalk. Very cute!].

From the same promotional trip to Japan; check out the interview below [starts at 3:52] and in particular how the camera operator unashamedly pervs on her! :shock:
