On September 28 2005, the double-A-sided 12″ promo for Madonna’s Hung Up was released. SDP’s Extended Dub (7:56) was included on both sides of the promo vinyl.

Rolling Stone magazine included Hung Up as one of the 100 Best Songs of the 2000s. Here’s what Rolling Stone had to say:

Going back to disco, as she always does and always should, the queen hustled up a chintzy-sounding Abba sample, a drag queen’s wet dream of a chorus, and Stuart Price’s electrobeats. The result? One of her most captivating hits ever — and thanks to those deceptively hard-hitting lyrics, one of her most personal.

  1. Yes! Hung Up is one of Madonna’s most hard-hitting rockers because it signaled that her relationship with Guy Ritchie was on the rocks and coming to an end. Far Beyond Driven, Hung Up is a brilliant Madonna tune-one of her absolute best! Love Madonna!
