Moving onto Album #9 with 2003's American Life which was a concept album with themes of the American Dream and materialism. With production by Mirwais & Madonna herself, the album is a folk and folktronica album; as well, it is influenced by acoustic music. Upon release the album received mixed reviews but managed to sell over 5 Million copies worldwide, while far from a failure, it was still a far cry from the sales of her previous efforts.

5 singles overall were released from this project, but which is your fave?


Simply rank the singles from best to worst:

Die Another Day
American Life
Hollywood
Nothing Fails
Love Profusion





If you haven't already, here's the links to Madonna's other eras:


Music ● rank the singles
Ray of Light ● rank the singles
Bedtime Stories ● rank the singles
Erotica ● rank the singles
Like A Prayer ● rank the singles
True Blue ● rank the singles
Like A Virgin ● rank the singles
Madonna ● rank the singles

Nothing Fails
Love Profusion
Die Another Day
Hollywood
American Life

Nothing Fails is glorious heart.gif wub.gif

The rest are kinda like the worst tracks on the album for me. The album is so half and half for me and I find I love the other tracks (bar I’m So Stupid).

I can see why she went with those single choices but yeah they’re not great for me. Nobody Knows Me deserved better laugh.gif

Finding this really tough to rank actually! Not even sure if I am happy with my ranking and keep switching it so going to sit on it for a few more listens before committing drama.gif

1) Nothing Fails
2) Die Another Day
3) Hollywood
4) American Life
5) Love Profusion

'Nothing Fails' definitely should have been a fully released single. Even if it didn't turn the era around commercially, at least the era might be more fondly thought of retrospectively.

'Nobody Knows Me' would have been a good single too.

07 Nothing Fails
03 Love Profusion

The best songs on the album weren’t singles, except maybe the title track. Nobody Knows Me, Easy Ride and Mother and Father > the rest.
