Over the years i have accumulated quite a considerable amount of records. I still have vinyl singles and albums about the place and cassette tapes along with CD's and MP3 files. Bryan Ferry sits next to Nirvana who in turn share self space with Paul Weller so it is a fair mix of genres and tastes. I tend to have varied tastes when it comes to music but nowhere in my collection is a Madonna album or single. It is hard to believe that the woman has been singing songs for over 25 years and i have not liked any of her songs enough to actually buy one one of them.
Perhaps it is me because she must be doing something right to be have been around so long and it isn't as if she is a niche artist, she sings pop songs and has been very successful at it but for whatever reason, she just doesn't appeal despite changing her image and style every few years.
There have always been better female singers with better songs around but as they fall by the wayside, Madonna seems to just keep going and getting songs in the charts the same as the Rolling Stones who have been going even longer and i have one song of theirs on MP3, Sympathy for the Devil.
It isn't that i even dislike Madonna, her stab at an English accent when she was with Guy was humorous but otherwise i am totally neutral to her, just none of the hundred or so songs she has released over the last 25 years have moved me. Is it me?
