#48 – Madonna – “Music” – (2000)

Well this was about the end of the era where Madonna was making music that I really gave a crap about. It was a #1 hit everywhere – the U.S., the U.K., and all over Europe and Australia. The video, for whatever reason, features Ali G. The song is electropop and was a big hit on the dance chart. Madonna has leaned that way since – toward club music, that is – and hasn’t had near the success – as this crossed over quite successfully onto pop radio where her later hits stayed mostly in the clubs. I want to say “everyone’s career has to flame out sometime” but she is the queen of comebacks. So we’ll see.
