Madonna: The Sticky & Sweet Tour Trailer


After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's ... Read more in Amazon's Madonna Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Madonna October 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is MUCH better than the "Madonna: The Early Years" bootleg that's been floating around on the internet for years. This CD is actually some real demos recorded by Madonna before her first album was released in 1982. They're by no means the same calibur that the Queen of pop continues to release today, but these songs are cute.

"Crimes Of Passion", "Laugh To Keep From Crying" and 2 of my favorites on this CD. If you're a Madonna fan, you need to have this in your collection. It also contains 2 versions of "Ain't No Big Deal" that was later recorded and released as a B-side to the "Papa Don't Preah" single from her "True Blue" album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous insight! December 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Well, it has to be said. This is a great surprise!
ALL the previous 'pre-Madonna' cds, those that claim to contain Madonna songs have been utter rubbish (ANYTHING to do with Otto von Wernherr).
But this is filled with great music. Its really interesting to see how Madonnas music has developed, and to see how the songs developed too!
Some of the tracks are completely new - the poppy 'Crimes of Passion', the Pretenders inspired 'Laugh to Keep from Crying', and 2 tracks are a lyrical mix of 'Stay' and 'Pretender', songs which appeared on her 2nd album! Obviously Madonna wasn't happy with these versions, and tweaked them to perfection.
You get the originals of Burning Up, Everybody and Ain't No Big Deal (with extra lyrics!), and even some mixes of them too. (Check out the reggae style Everybody).
Very well done...this is what fans want from this type of release. Thanks to Steve Bray for compiling this.
This isn't just for collectors...

4.0 out of 5 stars TRACK LISTING: (Grrrrr!!!) September 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I hate when the page does not have the track listing. No wonder some people don't like internet shopping, grrrrr!

1. Laugh to Keep From Crying

2. Crimes of Passion

3. Ain't No Big Deal ('97 Edit)

4. Everybody ('97)

5. Burning Up

6. Ain't No Big Deal ('81)

7. Everybody ('81)

8. Stay ('81)

9. Don't You Know

10. Ain't No Big Deal ('97 Extended Version)

Basically, this is Madonna's pre-stardom demo material. It is okay but I would recommend it only for those who collect all things Madonna. Some of the material was remixed into dance or down-tempo versions probally to jump on the remix bandwagon as remixing has become commonplace these days.

4.0 out of 5 stars good going stranger November 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"Pre-Madonna" is a bootleg CD that first went on sale 11 years ago. The date of 7-23-03 is totally incorrect, perhaps that is the date that it was first offered on this site. It was originally only offered by ordering it over the phone (no Internet ordering!) and it came out in late '96/early '97; to capitalize on Madonna's popularity due to EVITA. The songs on this CD are a lot like the songs on Madonna's first studio album, aptly titled Madonna. Although this is an unofficial recording (unofficial defined as not giving any proceeds to the recording artist,) the quality is excellent and the tracks are first rate. If you are a Madonna fan, collector or just someone that enjoys early 80's music you will enjoy this CD. There are several other bootleg Madonna CDs (released in the early 90's and mid/late 80's after she hit it big,) but this is the very best one!
