Today in Madonna History: August 17, 2012

On August 17 2012, Madonna’s Turn Up The Radio single was released in Germany as a digital download.

Brad O’Mancey from Popjustice had this to say about the single:

This is an escapist anthem about leaving wherever you’re stuck, getting in a car, whacking some amazing music on the stereo and putting your foot down. In other words, it’s still only when she’s dancing that she feels this free, and it’s still music making the people come together. It captures a brilliantly teenage sensation (“only music can save me from my shit life”) but makes sense of it in a song that doesn’t sound like she’s trying too hard to be down with the kids… Real life is sometimes a bit more complicated than that, and sometimes freedom is about being able to leave the cunts behind to get on with their useless lives. And that’s what this song is about.

  1. Turn Up the Radio is a brilliant song from one of Madonna’s mixed records-MDNA. If it was released on Warner it would have been huge! At best, Turn Up the Radio is an underrated gem!

  2. I was very sad to see this hit had only a digital version like Bitch I’m Madonna.
    I know it’s the new way to hear and buy music but not for me. I need to have something in my hand because it’s more than a sound. I love the idea to put a record on a record deck or on a cd player. It’s magical 🙂
