Madonna gets 'Hung Up'
Madonna’s announcement about her soon-to-be-released single ”Hung Up,” from her fall album Confessions on a Dancefloor, reveals few details. So it made me wonder:
-How many times has Madonna attempted a comeback by returning to her ”dance-floor” roots? Isn’t that what Music was supposed to be, a few years back, and Ray of Light before that?
-Given the presence of electronica guru Stuart Price (who served as musical director of Madonna’s 2004 Re-Invention Tour) as the single’s producer, should we expect more of the same sounds and styles she’s been using for the past couple years, or is she truly re-inventing herself again?
-Is this a sequel to Michael Jackson’s song and album Blood on the Dance Floor?
-Has Madonna ever actually been ”hung up” about anything? Or ever been truly confessional?
-Does the dance-floor emphasis mean she’s stepping back from the overtly political stance that marked her 2003 flop American Life?
-Is there going to be a children’s book tie-in?
