I mean, I would understand that she hated the likes of Material Girl and Into the Groove if she'd only done serious, avant garde stuff ever since, but apart from some very good songs and albums she's also done a lot of crap, with way less value imo than those 80s pop songs that she hates, so I don't really get it.
In the 90s until about 2006 though, she was taken way more seriously as an artiste the way she wanted to be, and that’s when she really dragged her 80s output. Especially during Ray of Light/Music eras. Even then it definitely wasn’t everything 80s related, only what gave her the Boytoy/Material Girl image. If she’d toured more in the 90s instead of cramming 3 albums into the Drowned World Tour in 2001, we probably would have seen more performances and recognition of 80s hits like Live To Tell, Like a Prayer, Borderline, OpenYour Heart, butwhen you’re trying to market successful records like ROL and Music 15 years into your career why would you want to be associated with Material Girl. 10 years later when she jumped on the Timbaland bandwagon and straight into trying to be a 25 year old pop-star again she definitely softened towards her big 80s pop hits and accepted them as part of her legacy. She even performed Into The Groove, Like a Virgin and Material Girl a couple times, bitch even pulled out Crazy For You, Who’s That Girl and True Blue. I’ll be dead if she whips out Causing a Commotion at 70 😭🤠

Not everyone can be like Chair and continuously sing the same 70s hits on your 2773th farewell tour, only to start making albums of songs from ANOTHER 70s nostalgia act 🤭

Has she ever done Dress You Up since the 80's? - I remember she opened her show with that when I saw her in the 80's

Omg you went the Virgin Tour! 😱 I am totally jealous.

Yes she has, in 2008 she did a rock version for the Sticky and Sweet tour and then it was in the Gypsy section of the Rebel Heart Tour. The 2008 version is horrendous, don’t go there. You might enjoy the Rebel Heart version though, it’s a medley with Into The Groove and some shows Lucky Star

You're gonna hate me now - but she was on that same edition of TOTP as Cyndi Lauper was, but she obviously wasn't that massive a star then.

You could still send a song with Madonna dancing behind some acts in 1979. But "Born to Be Alive" was already sent. Thank God. 🤡

:) No it was only Cyndi - apart from that one bit I'm not noticable in the audience for the whole show.

for some sad reason, a lot of songs that I could have possibly picked out of my list was released either in 1969 or 1980... :mad:

Not surprising. The mid 70s was a relative waste land and most (not all but most) of the best stuff from this decade came at the start and the end of the decade. So it is natural that there will be a lot of songs at both edges that just miss the cut.
