Living For Love – Madonna
Recorded February 2015.
Madonna is a hard worker. How could anyone not respect that! She’s still delivering.
This is my 4th Madonna remix. Decided to go with a 90's sounding house style feel for a few reasons:
The original version of "Living For Love" is piano based.
There seems to be a trend with mixes going back to the 90's style.
I liked how my "Lights" 90's remix came out.
I got a new virtual synth and I HAD to use it!
When I first heard "Living For Love", I wondered why the song built up in the chorus just to drop out. The chorus sounds like a gospel song, so why not "go there”. Interestingly, the song seems to have so many different parts to it, so I decided to reharmonize each section on its own.
I’m saddened to hear that some radio stations aren’t playing Madonna because she "doesn’t appeal to their younger listening audience.” As with most pop stations, they play into the marketing. Would they play this song if a younger artist sang it? I honestly do not listen to pop radio. They have stopped playing the music I like a long time ago.
Living for Love!
