A Brief Concert Review: Madonna X
Nothing Fails (from American Life, 2003)

For this song, I remember Madonna slowly reappearing on the opposite side of the stage
right on the edge, over the lucky crowd, strumming a guitar. The only part I recall clearly
is the refrain "I'm not religious, but..." and her sitting down, sharing her feelings with us.

I've heard a Canadian songstress I like characterize this album as "soulless". Maybe so. I
think it's just not as finished a jewel as albums of the past. Not polished or structured yet.
This song might have been better given a little more time. But it didn't completely FAIL.

Don't Tell Me (from Music, 2000)

I LOOVED this stage set with Madonna at the top of a triangle troupe of dancers in front
of an elongated backdrop of a nighttime European city on riverside, complete with the Eiffel Towerand Big Ben (I think or else London Bridge) with a moon that slo-o-wly went across the sky, like an extended make out. I really didn't want it to stop, as I think
this was the highlight of the night for me. I pictured all the dreams I had and goals I was
reaching for and I envisioned myself gradually progressing to and achieving them some night.

Like A Prayer...
