2006 Madonna: Sorry

Following the back to the clubs basics of 'Hung Up', 'Sorry' sets up a permanent base camp there with a pumping jog of a tune that pulls off the trick of sounding comfortably retro yet edgily contemporary. 'Sorry' has the confidence born of restraint and, sans the distraction of an attention diverting sample (though keen ears may pick out the bassline from The Jacksons' 'Can You Feel It' buried in there), is content to throb like a busy vein under the power of it's own sensuous pulse as Madonna lays down the law to a would be suitor ("I don't wanna hear, I don't wanna know. Please don't say you're sorry, I've heard it all before"). And by not trying to be ahead of the game, Madonna ends up leading the pack anyway - this is what Madonna does best, always has been, always will be.
