[ # ] Madonna, you keep on pushing my love over the Borderline
June 10th, 2016 under Madonna


Back in 1983, Madonna burst on to the scene with her song Borderline. The song made her Internation star, so you would think that she would never destroy it and leave it just as it has always been.
Yesterday, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon she performed her first huge hit and it was horrendous. She slowed it down and lowered the accompanying music to the point that you could hear her singing voice. There are a lot of things that Madonna is as a performer and having a great singing voice is not one of them. She was able to hide that fact throughout her career behind the music, but here you can hear it. Which I would’ve forgiven for her, if she didn’t take all the joy out the song.
I actually listened to this performance all the way through, hoping it would get better but it never did. It had me losing my mind half way through. I kept praying she was going to do what Ike and Tina Turner did with Proud Mary. You know start off slow and finish it off fast, but she never did.
I don’t know why she did with this Borderline. I’ve seen her in concert a few times, and she has been great. But this intimate performance sucked more than well, you know where I am going with that.
I get it, she is ageing and she wants the song to age with her. Then why is she so desperate to look, act and dress young? But that is a whole other rant.
So Madonna, please leave your old hits along and just screw up your new songs.
Oh and what is up with her stealing Gwen Stefani’s fashion sense.
Finally, you can listen to her original version of Borderline below to cleanse yours ears.
