It must be a cold day in hell because I'm not totally repulsed by Madonna's latest offering. After the bad Dannii B-side that was "Celebration", the oldest woman in pop slightly redeems herself with the second single from her recent Greatest Hits compilation. The album version of "Revolver" is utterly tragic - fact - but calling in David Guetta to overhaul the song was a wise move. The Frenchman mercifully deletes Lil' Wayne's embarrassing rap, speeds up the plodding beats and trims away all the excess padding. Unfortunately, he can't do anything about the plethora of bad metaphors littering the lyrics but the marriage of sex and violence works a lot better in this version. The end result wouldn't sound out of place on Rihanna's gruesome "Rated R" - if that shit actually contained fun music. I really hope they go with this as the radio edit. It's kind of nice to enjoy a Madonna single again (it hasn't happened since 2006's "Get Together") and I think it's only fair she reap some benefit from the current electro-dance craze. After all, the super cougar was already burning up the dancefloor years before Lady GaGa and Ke$ha were even born. Check out Madonna Vs David Guetta below. The robotastic extended version is even better but I can't find it on youtube.
Now that I've finally had something nice to say, can Madonna's army of trolls please stop spamming my email over this highly accurate post? Cheers.
