iTune-Up – Madonna Remakes

Posted by ThatsMyJamRadio on August 22, 2008

Madonna just celebrated her 50th birthday and for more than two decades has been recognized as an innovator of dance and pop music.

But even Madge has taken a break from being fully creative, opting instead to reinterpret some of pop, rock, R&B and Broadway’s staples. Add these to your iPod and sound intellectual at the Material Girl’s next fan club meeting.

“Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” (1984/1996)
— From Like A Virgin (also appeared on Something to Remember, the album it was technically “released” from), originally recorded by Rose Royce in 1978

“Fever” (1993)
— From Erotica, originally recorded by Little Willie John in 1956, though Peggy Lee’s version is considered the most popular

“I Want You” (1995)
— Available on Something to Remember, originally recorded by Marvin Gaye in 1976

“Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” (1996)
— From the soundtrack to the motion picture Evita, originally recorded by Julie Covington in 1973, but popularized by Elaine Page and Patti LuPone in the UK and U.S., respectively

“American Pie” (2000)
— From the soundtrack to the motion picture The Next Best Thing, originally recorded by Don McLean in 1971
