Comment:

Madonna's musical tentacles snake out not only across [i]genres[/i], but also across [i]generations[/i] — the only glue holding this playlist of Madonna covers together is the gravitational influence of an artist who pulls everything into her orbit. Kelly Osbourne's hard-rock, fuzz-drenched version of "Papa Don't Preach", recorded with Mike Einziger and Jose Pasillas from Incubus (and produced by brother Jack Osbourne), carries a bludgeon where A Flock of Seagulls' slightly sinister, retro-new wave take on "This Used to Be My Playground" prefers the scalpel. And whereas Jody Watley approaches "Borderline" from the cocktail lounge, Showoff comes at it from the skate-park. From Atom and His Package's synth-slathered take on "Open Your Heart" to worldbeat/techno fusion duo Loop Guru's off-centre cover of "Cherish", these tracks take liberties with — but never wholly elude — their source.
