Another favourite down. sob.gif Years before Clean Bandit, it was Madonna that was mixing violins and dance music to create something undeniably infectious. It gets vamped up a gear every time the chorus kicks in and the pause just before the final choruses (something that's quite common on this album) really helps build some last minute anticipation for the inevitable spectacular finale. Lyrically, Madonna's come to the point where she realises where fame and fortune fairs on the spectrum of what matters in life. She knows there will be highs, lows, and eventually it'll be over and there's nothing you can do but enjoy the ride: simply "let it (will) be". It would probably work at the other end of the album, after the self-questioning on 'How High' and the journey of the rest of the album, but that's a small nark. Also, something usually observed by Haus, the transition from this song to 'Forbidden Love' is particularly special to me; it almost feels like one is the answer song to the other.

Next Round: Saturday 21 November

Round 06: Let It Will Be (06/15; 40.00%)
Round 05: Future Lovers (06/16; 37.50%)
Round 04: Like It or Not (09/15; 60.00%)
Round 03: How High (04/16; 25.00%, joint with 'Future Lovers', lost deadlock 08/13; 61.54%)
Round 02: I Love New York (04/16; 25.00%)
Round 01: Push (06/12; 50.00%)

'Isaac' for me now.

I too ADORE the transition between 'Let It Will Be' and 'Forbidden Love' (and then the transition between that and 'Jump' is my favourite Madonna moment EVER wub.gif).

The best transitions for me are 'Future Lovers'-'I Love New York', 'Let It Will Be'-'Forbidden Love', 'Forbidden Love'-'Jump' and 'How High'-'Isaac'. I mean they're all fantastic but those in particular.

Also the strings bit at the end of 'Push' into 'Like It or Not', but I don't really consider that section to be part of 'Push'.

Surely, surely, Isaac cannot survive another round. A typical "last quarter of the album filler" from M.

Isaac

I've been voting this since the beginning and it's by far the worst thing on the album. drama.gif

OH THANK GOD

Isaac has taken out TWO of the top 5, despite being bottom 3, so I am pleased it's finally going.
