Patrick Leonard Launches Kickstarter for New Album of Madonna Songs

Earlier this year, Slant exclusively revealed that veteran songwriter/producer Patrick Leonard is recording his first album in over 20 years—a collection of reimagined versions of songs he wrote with Madonna in the 1980s and ’90s as well as a brand new song composed by Leonard. Titled Bring the Circus Home, the album will feature many of the original musicians who performed on some of the queen of pop’s iconic hits, including guitarist Bruce Gaitsch and bassist Guy Pratt.

Madonna’s done it all. And we’ve pretty much covered it all. So when we sat down to decide the best way to celebrate the anniversary of Madonna’s debut album, released in 1983, we elected to dig up some of the forgotten or unheralded gems scattered liberally throughout her three-decade-spanning catalogue rather than predictably rank her best albums, singles, or videos—which we’ve more or less done on various other lists over the years anyway. With the exception of one B-side, one compilation cut, and one remix, all of our picks can be found on a Madonna studio album—a testament to the singer’s strength as an album artist, particularly in the ’90s. These are songs that, in a more adventurous world, could have been hits, and in some cases where the releases were nixed last minute, almost were, their breadth and depth reflective of an artist unwilling to allow herself to be defined. And just for shits and giggles, we ranked ’em.
