Review: Madonna – Vogue (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Madonna – Vogue.

This track was released in 1990 as a single.

The track starts off with some string elements. After this, some very quiet percussion work is added with some snapping sounds. From there, the drum kit comes in and some vocals sprinkle in. Additional brass elements are added.

The main vocals then come in with some elements being pulled back. It doesn’t take long before the main chorus comes in.

The next verse comes in with many elements being pulled back again. The various elements come back in for the next round of the main chorus.

After this, the next verse comes in as a number of elements get pulled back. After this, the main chorus comes back in shortly after. This is capped off with a sort of instrumental section with some lyrics.

An additional verse comes in. This is backed by some piano keys. After a brief piano solo, the vocals come back. This leads the track out.

One thing I do like about the track is that it hits on themes of being inclusive. This is a very nice thing to hear in a track.

Once I got past this part, I quickly realized that there was really not a lot happening in the track that makes me impressed. It has decent vocals and decent piano work. Unfortunately, there is no one feature that makes this track stand out in any way.

In fact, I find some of the lyrics a little on the cliche side. As a result, it gives me the impression of being a little tired and worn at times.

Overall, probably the only real thing I like about this track is the fact that it pushes themes of an inclusive nature. That is definitely great to hear in my view. Unfortunately, there’s really nothing else going on here that makes this track all that enjoyable. The vocals and various instruments used throughout are alright, but nothing to get excited over. Some of the lyrics, unfortunately, fall into the category of being cliche. So, an overall average track.
