The 10 Best Covers of Madonna Songs
The Wikipedia page for Madonna tribute albums lists over 50 different collections of covers that render her songs in three times as many different ways: bossa nova, hard core punk, industrial, and as twinkly lullabies. And that’s not even counting the many different one-off versions that have popped up on albums and singles around the music world for the length of the Material Girl’s long reign on the public consciousness. Amid this chaff, there are plenty of worthwhile homages to our favourite pop princess, many of which you are likely familiar with and some you may have yet to hear. We waded through this pile of lace, leather and sparkle to come up with our highly subjective list of the 10 best takes on Madonna.
