One of the greatest female vocalists of all time. Yes, despite being almost too busty for it she shared Marilyn's "Gentlemen Prefer Blond" dinner dress beautifully in "The Girl Can't Help It".
WHAT A VOICE! See link below
So Madonna fans.
A question for you all.
If Madonna had released "Beat of My Drum" (below link with it's cheerleader chorus of L.O.V.E!) and then Lady Gaga had released "Gimme All Your Luvin" about a seven months later, what would you say?
Both songs feature cheerleader-style choruses with Madge's track, which is produced by William Orbit, featuring the lyrics: 'L-U-V Madona'.
On Twitter fans rushed to compare the songs with zappomatic saying: 'I like the new Madonna song but a bit of it sounds rather borrowed from Nicola Roberts.'
Peet_tweets tweeted: 'The new Madonna single sounds like its been lifted straight off Nicola Roberts album!'
THAT'S BECAUSE IT IS.
MADONNA PAYS FOR OUT MUSIC PLAGIARISM #1:
The Madonna album version of "Erotica" samples "El Yom 'Ulliqa 'Ala Khashaba" ("Today, He Is Held to a Cross") by Lebanese singer Fairuz from her 1962 album Good Friday - Eastern Sacred Songs. Madonna used that prayer more prominently in her "The Beast Within" track. Fairuz sued Madonna for $2.5 million for plagiarism over the section/sampling. In "Erotica", Madonna repeatedly chants over Fairuz's voice "All over me". An undisclosed settlement was eventually reached between Fairuz and Madonna, but the scandal caused both the single and the album to be banned in Lebanon.
Madonna and Jonas "Derek Jarman Rip Off" Aukerland copied the work of director Stefano Salvati. "Ray of Light" is exactly like a clip Salvati once submitted to the former Madonna-owned, Maverick Records. The music video he directed featured Italian singer Biagio Antonacci's performing "Non e Mai Stato Subito." The videos feature Antonacci cavorting and dancing at regular speed against a high-speed background. Madonna lifted all that and the clouds and dreamlike quality because she's rip off. See for yourself:
Melyvn Bragg became life long friends with Ken when he joined him on the production team of Huw Wheldon's Monitor arts series on BBC Television. Some of his early television work was in collaboration with Ken, for whom he wrote the The Debussy Film (1965) and Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World (1967) and The Music Lovers (1970). Bragg later commissioned and co-wrote with Russell The Clouds of Glory films William and Dorothy and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Other commissions by Bragg include A British Picture (Bragg makes an appearance above) and The Planets for The Southbank Show.
Master costume designer, Shirley and Ken were married for 22 years, had five children (Xavier, James, Alex, Victoria and Toby) and she worked alongside him on his early fledgling photography and films all the way through to Valentino. Apart from designing costumes for nearly all his major films and BBC productions, she appears in his very first amateur film entitled "Peepshow" and countless photos.
Above in a shoot Ken did for UN Potato day 1956, (Potato farmers use pogo sticks) and some of Shirley's sketches for Valentino.
