Jogging 6


I’m a big fan of 80s music. Yes, the decade that gave the world the sound of pop, the memorable 80s! I remember old times, jogging and listening to such wonderful music at the same time! I’m talking about Madonna, Michael Jackson, Huey Lewis, Cyndi Lauper, George Michael and many others. Well, let’s focus on Madonna, eleven albums, an impressive career.

Stop jogging and listen to some new music

Yes, let’s stop jogging for a minute. I mean, time to change the music station and to choose Madonna, the world’s tastiest sweetheart. She has announced more non-stop treats for her legions of legendary and devoted fans. Following the latest news that “Hard Candy” has debuted at Number 1 around the globe, it has been confirmed that Madonna’s “Sticky and Sweet Tour” will begin (hip) hopping around the world on August 23rd in Cardiff, Wales with stops in major European markets through September including London (11-September) and Paris (20-September).

Are you still jogging? stop because I’ve got more news! Hard Candy features collaborations with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. The main themes are love, music and sex and sometimes seems that Madonna repeats herself. Not bad, considering that this album is a great example of the best american pop music.

To be more clear, we can define it unforgettable pop with wonderful choruses. The style is more urban-oriented, than the past disco tracks, and Madonna’s best eighties are back, creating a unique cocktail of different genres.

This is Madonna eleventh and final album for longtime label Warner Bros and it surely represents another mark on current pop culture.

About the Tour, it will feature a lot of past favorites as well as focusing on Madonna’s Hard Candy. She will be supported onstage by different famous artists, as example Paul Oakenfold in London, and Bob Sinclair in Paris.

More than one million tickets have been sold, means about 90% of the total, so better to run as soon as possible to get your ticket!

At the same time, I would recommend to check also Coldplay events. Chris Martin is taking his band back on the road for what promises to be their biggest tour to date to celebrate their hugely anticipated new album ‘Viva la Vida‘ and hit single ‘Violet Hill‘.

Ok, let’s start again jogging, have fun!

    I am a bog fan of the Hard Candy stuff. I started marathon training last month and am finding that electro music is the only thing that keeps me motivated when I am on my long training runs!

    Out of all the names you added in your first paragraph, Madonna has definitely done the best job of staying relevant in today’s music. Plus she has the added benefit of being able to play her classics. You don’t see this happen very often with “Pop” music. She’s done a good job. But I’d still rather listen to the old 80’s hits. 😉

    Funny to refer to 50+ year old as a tasty treat, but as I’m growing up at exactly the same rate as Madonna and was young when she was – I understand the sentiments.

    thanks for the comment! yes, madonna has been able to change and adapt to different musical styles. Having her entire collection of music… is a great representation of 30 years of styles and trends.
