Sparkle Bites: 15 Best Madonna Songs—Throwbacks Included!

When I was growing up, one of my favorite singers was Madonna. Conservatives rallied against her for various things (like burning crosses in her videos), but all I knew was that I enjoyed listening to her music…and the fact that everything she did was so scandalous! I mean, you gotta admire a girl who lets out her inner crazy and owns it!

And she's coming to Manila!!

And she’s coming to Manila for the Rebel Heart Tour!! Who’s watching her concert?

I super want to go, but I might have to work that weekend and the ticket prices are no joke (find out how you can score free ones at the end of the post!). So for now, I’m just going to enjoy watching her music videos (throwback time!!!) and make a mini playlist of all my favorite Madonna songs. Check them out:

1. Papa Don’t Preach
It’s the first Madonna song I ever heard! Classic!

2. Material Girl
This one’s just fun! Haha, and it’s one of the best songs to sing to during a karaoke sesh!

3. True Blue
I always think of my first crush whenever I hear this song. Hi, Jonathan! :p

4. Open Your Heart
Who remembers this song? And also, choreography has come a long way since this video! LOL!

5. Cherish
Loooove this song! It always makes me feel so happy!

6. Vogue
Get ready to strike a pose, because it’s not a Madonna playlist without this!

7. I’ll Remember
Great song, but if I’m honest, the Brandon Fraser clips made me watch the video even more.

8. Take A Bow
This was super sexy. And I loved getting a glimpse at what it was like to be in the world of a matador.

9. Music
Hilarious and I think this was the song that made Madonna hot again! Although I did have a heck of a time trying to figure out who the limo driver was.

10. Ray Of Light
Her hair! Her fabulous hair!

11. Me Against The Music
Because Britney Spears is my spirit animal.

12. Hung Up
Another video with fabulous hair. I actually copped this look for a while.

13. Living For Love
Creepiest video ever, but the lyrics are <3

14. Girl Gone Wild
Because she’s still just as scandalous and just as fabulous.

15. Bitch, I’m Madonna
Yassss. Perfect for days when you need a little more attitude.

Daaaaaamn. How awesome was her career? Now it feels like a sin to miss her concert—especially since it’s probably going to be her first (and last!) one in Manila!
