I can see this being played in every club and even in strip joints!
Madonna always seems to make songs that you want to hear over and over again, and this one is no different. It connects with
some inner part of you that only she consistently is able to touch. It's a genre, [MOODY DANCE MUSIC], that she is the master of, think "Deeper and Deeper" from Erotica, "Get Together" and "Sorry" from Confessions On A Dance Floor, and many others.
This is the reason she and she alone is QUEEN.
Opening with the same spoken prayer from 1989's Act of Contrition, the track soon explodes into a powerhouse dance anthem that very nearly ventures into rave territory. Produced by Benny Benassi, it's more than a little reminiscent of his remix for Madonna's 2009 single Celebration, which in this case is a good thing. True, it isn't the most profound song you'll ever hear, and at times Madonna's vocals sound a bit wooden as if she were reading the lyrics from a page, but the lush production of it all more than makes up for any shortcomings and it is without a doubt one of the highlights of the album, at least in my opinion. Glow stick not included.
What IS included on this CD, however, is the Justin Cognito remix of Girl Gone Wild, which is actually quite good and gives the song a completely different vibe without outshining the original. Madonna's vocals are layered over a simple tribal beat, but what really caught my attention was how the first couple "hey-ey-ey" parts are almost entirely acapella! That totally took me by surprise, but it works well and I love it. For what it's worth, I believe this mix is also featured as a bonus track on the Japanese deluxe version of MDNA.
Despite being a huge fan and collector, I'm no sheep and can actually be quite critical when it comes to Madonna (especially in recent years) but this is one song I feel no shame in legitimately gushing over, lol.Read more ›
My only complaint is that, days within this single's official release, Madonna and Co. made an official name change for this track after being threatened by legal action from Joe Francis and his Girls Gone Wild empire. While M's manager and long-time friend, Guy Oseary, has gone on record stating the name change did not stem from Francis' 'cease and desist' letter, I call B.S. Madonna's very own MADONNAVEVO on YouTube originally posted the track with the plural "Girls" title. When stories began to circulate concerning the drama and legal correspondence, the name change drops. WTF, Madonna? You're Madonna. You should have kept it your way. Or was that someone else telling her Dad she wasn't changing her show for him because it comprimised her artistic integrity? Oh, how I long for the early 90's sometimes...

What can I say. I happen to like her music and the cover work is great, even though I'd prefer the cover art to be on a 33 1/3.Published on February 1, 2014 by ElleWishes
dance mix, same 2 songs on this disc. good remix of each though.
I like to hear it loud and clear on the magic sound system that kills!
It's better than "Hung Up" and it's just what one would come to expect from the Queen of Pop herself! Read morePublished on January 30, 2013 by whitechocolatebrotha
