Madonna – Miles Away


It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a Madonna material or have I? It’s quite pleasing to hear this new song from Madonna. It’s way out of “4 Minutes,” “Give It 2 Me” – the string array of Madonna hits from her latest album “Hard Candy”. It’s not bubblegum tasting but yet effective with the help of Timbaland’s ingenuity. It’s currently flopping off the charts but yet, I’m liking it.

Madonna’s not that rich voice is hitting again our ears with “Miles Away”. It’s almost an electropop song with the likes of Robyn but it sort of has it’s own distinction between Electropop and R&B. It’s dreamy filled with crunk and hip beats incorporated with Madonna’s ever sultry yet elegant vocals. It’s one of the best songs off from her #1 album. Maybe it’s a hint on what happened to Madge’s failed marriage with Guy Ritchie. She’s actually miles away from him for the past year because of her recent and recurring international success. It’s a nice follow-up to her recently concluded massive world tour. I’m wondering why the song isn’t climbing up the charts? Very disappointing but bearable at the moment. Madge should promote this because it’s a defo good song.

    I agree, a #39 debut is not that great for the UK chart. The lack of a video to accompany the single is definitely hurting the chart success, imo. I do love the song though, and it’s going to feature on my Top Songs of ’08 for sure. 🙂

    This song is by far the best out of the record.I also listed as one of my top songs in 2008’s better than a sad song hidden underneath a dance
