Today in Madonna History: June 6, 2006

On June 6 2006, Get Together was released as the third international single from the album Confessions On A Dance Floor on Warner Bros. Records.

The initial marketing strategy for Confessions On A Dance Floor included plans to release Jump as its third single. Plans shifted when Get Together proved to be the most popular digital download from the album (excluding its previous two singles, Hung Up and Sorry), warranting its release ahead of Jump, which became the fourth single.

Get Together was written by Madonna, Anders Bagge, Peer Åström & Stuart Price with production by Madonna & Price. The final version also includes a small sampling of string elements from the song’s original production (which only became evident once the original demos leaked to the internet several years later), hence the unusual “Original Production by Bagge & Åström” credit inclusion in the liner notes of the album and single.

  1. I love Get Together! Get Together is Madonna’s Zeroes Masterpiece! Her voice aglow with joy and happiness, Get Together is for any denizen in any rock club looking for connection! That Madonna does this is a Ciccone Triumph-hence lyric “If it’s bitter at the start, then it’s sweeter in the end!” One of my very favorite songs by Madonna!-Imported from Detroit!

  2. The “Confessions” album is such sublime perfection from beginning to end, it’s hard for me to pick just one favorite track off of it — but if I had to, “Get Together” would be it. The demo version of it is not bad either, but I love, love, LOVE that Stuart Price ended up throwing out most of the original demo track and starting from scratch with it — though not really, because the final version is actually just “Holiday” slowed down a notch.
