		Class 50 Number 1 Club Madonna: From 'Everybody' to 'I Can't Find It'

For the past 40 years, Madonna has not only been the queen of pop, but also the monarch of the clubs. He has broken the record for 50 numbers on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, whose remixes are collected on the album “Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones”, out today. Clocking in at 220 minutes, the album is a dizzying journey through the ever-changing landscape of dance music and a testament to Madonna’s ability to evolve with it.

But all the same, “Finally Enough Love” is about reconnecting with the dance music giants of yesteryear. Legendary DJs like Junior Vasquez (who betrayed the pop icon over the 1996 single “If Madonna Calls”), Victor Calderone, William Orbit, and David Morales defined nightlife in the ’90s and ’90s, and they are all represented with remixes . for songs such as “Secret”, “Justify My Love”, “Bedtime Story”, “Nothing Really Matters” and “Deeper and Deeper”.

When club music took a new direction in the ’00s, so did Madonna. Remix masters like Thunderpuss entered the scene along with producers like Ralphi Rosario, Above and Beyond, Tracy Young and the late Peter Rauhofer. Notable is the “Confessions on a Dance Floor” era, which produced high-profile collaborations with dance music stalwarts such as Stuart Price, the Swedish Axwell House Mafia, and the Pet Shop Boys.

Heading into the 2010s, Madonna maintained her relationship with dance music’s elite, collaborating with Avicii on a remix of “Girl Gone Wild” and teaming up with Benny Benassi for “Celebration,” but she also supported new talent. like Israel Nissim’s Offer and Dirty Pop from Dallas. The fact that he’s continued to work with fans like Tracy Young and transgender DJ Honey Dijon speaks to his loyalty to tree fans.

Remastered by Kanye West and Weeknd collaborator Mike Dean and curated by Madonna herself, “Firally Enough Love” is available on streaming services and also (with more satisfying sonic fidelity) in 3CD and 6LP formats. To celebrate the album’s arrival, we’ve ranked 50 of Madonna’s club hits: While some are undisputed classics and sound a little worse, they’re all a glimpse into the history of dance music. The rankings, given below, should be taken with a grain of salt.

50. “Erotica” (Underground Club Mix)

Madonna’s clubbing remake of “Erotica” is a hit on the “Confessions” tour. Listen to that version.

49. “Fever” (Radio Edit)

Madonna’s version of “Fever” is great, but the Radio Edit is not suitable for the dance floor.

48. “Dress My Love” (Orbit Edit)

William Orbit’s contribution to the hitmaker’s legacy is huge, but this remix of “Justify My Love” is still amazing after years of rust.

47. “Me Against the Music” (Peter Rauhofer Radio Mix)

Another remix that has lost some of its old self, despite its inevitability and inevitability upon release.

46. ​​”Give It 2 ​​Me” (Eddie Amador Club 5 Edit)

Eddie Amador’s remake of the old house legend of “Give It 2 ​​Me” is so timely, it’s the closest thing to a time machine to capture back to 2008.

45. “Ghosttown” (Dirty Pop Intro Mix)

Madonna’s last big ballad was always going to be a tough nut for remixers. Don Diablo’s version is the closest.

44. “Nothing Fails” (Tracy Young Underground Radio Edit)

With all due respect, there was the “Nevins Mix”.

43. “Medellín” (Nissim Madame X Offered by the Sphinx Mix)

They couldn’t get the remixes of “Medellín” right, which is a shame because the original is so much fun. Perhaps a diversion towards reggaeton would make more sense.

42. “Die Another Day” (Deepsky Radio Edit)

Los Angeles electronic duo Deepsky took Madonna’s Bond song and cranked up the BPM at breakneck speed.

41. “Crave” (Tracy Young Dangerous Remix)

Released at any other point in her career, “Crave” would have been a huge hit for Madonna. At least the pop-hip-hop hybrid found love in the club world.

40. “4 Minutes” (Bob Sinclar Space Funk Edit)

Did “4 minutes” really need a “space funk” remix? Probably not, but French DJ Bob Sinclar gives it his own.

39. “Living for Love” (Offer Nissim Promo Mix)

“Rebel Heart’s” lead single, “Living for Love”, was cut and modified for clubbing despite being very danceable at first.

38. “Beautiful Stranger” (Calderone Radio Mix)

Time has passed for this remix of Madonna’s 1999 hit “Beautiful Stranger” a bit, but it was certainly good at the time.

37. “Nothing Really Matters” (Club 69 Radio Mix)

Club 69, formerly known as the late DJ Peter Rauhofer, certainly knew how to remix Madonna, as this iteration of “Nothing Really Matters” attests.

36. “Give Me All” (Party Rock Remix)

Nothing says 2012 like an LMFAO remix, and the Party Rockers do their thing, for better or worse, on “Give Me All Your Luvin’.”

35. “American Pie” (Richard “Humpty” Radio Video Mix)

If Madonna covering Don McLean wasn’t cool enough, Canadian club heavyweight Richard Visiossion gave her an amazing red-handed dance remix. 10/10. There are no notes.

34. “I Rise” (Pride Radio Remix by Tracy Young)

Pioneering DJ Tracy Young is a longtime Madonna collaborator thanks to rave reviews for songs like “I Rise.”

33. “Impressive Instant” (Peter Rauhofer Universal Radio Mix)

“Impressive Instant” became a firm fan favorite after Peter Rauhofer’s dazzling remix package. Its age is a little noticeable, but that only adds to the nostalgia.

32. “Hollywood” (Calderone & Quayle Edit)

Victor Calderone and Mac Quayle were Madonna remixers for a while in the ’90s and early ’00s thanks to front room monsters like this one.

31. “Physical Attraction” (You Can Dance Remix Edit)

One of the hidden gems of Madonna’s debut album hit the clubs, and with good reason: “Physical Attraction” is propulsive bubblegum-pop of the highest order.

30. “I’m Not Looking For You” (Honey Dijon Radio Mix)

The best of the “Madame X” remixes comes from cross-house icon Honey Dijon, who managed to turn the meditative song into a club smash.

29. “Bitch I’m Madonna” (Sander Kleinenberg Video Editing)

Remixes of “Rebel Heart” were generally confused, but Dutch DJ Sander Kleinenberg bucked the trend with the furious stomp.

28.”

27. “Love Profusion” (Ralphi Rosario House Vocal Edit)

Ralphi Rosario’s performance is great, but Headcleanr Rock Mix is ​​perhaps Madonna’s best remix and deserves to be on the album.

26. “Turn Up the Radio” (Offer Nissim Remix Edit)

Israeli DJ Offer Nissim is reviewing one of Madonna’s latest pop hits.

25. “Ray of Light” (Sasha Ultra Violet Mix Edit)

It’s not the best remix of “Ray of Light” by any means, but the British DJ’s version is a nostalgic delight for fans of dance music from a certain era.

24. “Jump” (Axwell Remix Edit)

Swedish House Mafia member Axwell wraps “Jump” in his trademark electro-house magic, adding to the long list of amazing “Confessions” remixes.

23. “What it feels like

22. “I’m Sorry” (PSB Maxi Mix Edit)

The Pet Shop Boys/Madonna may take itself too seriously, but it’s a treat for die-hard fans.

21. “American Life” (Devin Dazzle Edit by Felix da Housecat)

Chicago’s Felix da Housecat has smoothed away the rough edges of Madonna’s “American Life” by leaning into the chorus of “Modern life is not for me” in this masterful remix.

20. “Material Girl” (7″ version)

Saucy Santana duo confirm that “Girl Stuff” still has a strong hold on partygoers 38 years later.

19. “Don’t Tell Me” (Thunderpuss Video Remix)

Thunderpuss, aka Los Angeles producers Barry Harris and Chris Cox, had clubbers smothered with their remixes in the ’90s and early ’00s. His updated “Don’t Tell Me” shows why.

18. “Bedtime Story” (Junior Single Mix)

Junior Vasquez was really in the bag during Madonna’s “Bedtime Stories” era, transforming “Bedtime Story” into ’90s club gold.

17. “Celebration” (Benny Benassi Remix Edit)

Italian DJ Benny Benassi reworked a footnote from Madonna’s iconic speech into an authentic electro-psychedelic moment.

16. “Frozen” (Extended Club Mix Edit)

“Finally Enough Love” is the best of the “Ray of Light” era remixes. Swap it out for Madonna’s recent collaboration with Sickick if you’re looking for something more contemporary.

15. “Everybody” (You Can Dance Remix Edit)

The song that started it all seems to be aging in reverse, with today’s top divas emulating its glorious 80s metal sound at every turn.

14. “Music” (Deep Dish Dot Com Radio Edit)

After delivering the best remix of “Music”, the American duo Deep Dish went on to make their mark on dance music with gems like “Say Hello”.

13. “Hang Up” (PFS Extended Editing)

Dance-pop doesn’t get much better than “Hung Up,” and Stuart Price was wise enough to emulate the flavor of the original in this ’00s staple.

12. “Open Your Heart” (video version)

While the video of a kid attending a pinch show might raise eyebrows today, the glee of “Open Your Heart” hasn’t diminished over time.

11. “Secret” (Junior Luscious Single Mix)

It’s hard to imagine clubs in the ’90s with Junior Vasquez. His commanding review of “Secret” is one of his best offerings.

10. “Vacation” (7″ Version)

A serotonin-boosting pop classic that will fill the dance floors of gay bars and family gatherings from here to eternity.

9. “Girl Gone Wild” (UMF Avicii Mix)

The late Avicii’s 2012 hit single “MDNA” received rave reviews at Ultra Music Festival. It has fallen over the centuries.

8.”

7. “Bring Together” (Jacques Lu Cont Vocal Edit)

All the “Confessions” remixes are perfect, but the haunting, ambient makeover of Stuart Price’s “Get Together” is the best.

6. “Express Yourself” (Edit Remix)

Truly infinite. A song that inspired pop artists from the day it was released for a very good reason.

5. “Deeper and Deeper” (David’s Radio Edit)

David Morales ruled with an iron fist in the ’90s thanks to remixes like his nu-disco spin on “Deeper and Deeper.”

4. “Keep Together” (Alternate Single Remix)

The fifth and final single from the 1990 album “

3. “Don’t cry for me Argentina” (Miami Mix Edit)

High camp masterpiece. If you know it, you know it.

2. “Vogue” (single version)

A perfect pop song that hasn’t been out of tune on any dance floor at any point in the last 30 years or so.

1. “Into the Groove” (You Can Dance Remix Edit)

“Into the Groove” could be said to be the blueprint for club-pop hybrids that started in the ’80s and are still being released today.
