July will mark 30 years since Madonna received her first UK number one in the shape of 'Into the Groove'.

To celebrate, I've created a rank of Madonna's 13 UK number ones so that we can count down to Buzzjack's Ultimate Madonna #1 throughout July.

You can give one 11 and one -1, but of course, do be sensible with the amount of 10s you give!

If 4 Minutes is indeed her last ever UK #1 (and lets be honest, bar her death causing a massive spike, it will be) that will be a crying shame. That being said I don't think this is necessarily the best way to view Madonna an artist anyway, yeah it has some career peaks and defining moments, but there's a much, much stronger set of 13 singles out there if you were to even include her #2's (of which she has a lot).

I suppose that in the sense of '4 Minutes' being more trend-chasing than trend-setting, I do agree that it's not worthy of being Madonna's last #1. But I am extremely fond of the song and there's no doubt it was pretty big at the time, and I'd suggest that it's one that people my age would still like if it were to play on the TV/radio. I do agree that Madonna is so much more than her #1s but I think that could be argued about any artist that one is a fan of. Plus, finding a definitive answer for Madonna's best songs wasn't particularly the focus of this, more to get some discussion going again, but if people were interested in looking at Madonna's #2s or any other ideas, I'd definitely be happy to hear suggestions and get something started after this.

Oh no, I was just being mean spirited for no reason. I just find the likes of Music and Intro The Groove totally overrated and 4 Minutes is a fine song, but as a lead single and worldwide #1 it was more do with the Timba's than HER, which saddens me for someone with such an incredible legacy.

All scores are relative to the others. There are around 3 11s, 8 10s and the rest are at least a 9 but i had to scale it down a bit.
