But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

What a horribly boring song. The only reason she released this was for a good cause, I would hope she would never be dumb enough to put shit like this on an actual CD of hers.

Re: Madonna's new single 'Hey You'

I don't think it is a much of a song myself...but as a promo for Earth Concert I think it works fine.
I do like the use of the "The Last March" drums, usually used in funeral processions.

And the "if you love someone else, then you can save someone else" lyric bridge section is in a musical/show tune style that is quite interesting.

As far as i know the track is not being released as a commercial cd will a free download only.
