But are they really?
Material Girl, that's a classic song, so is Like A Prayer, as is Love Profusion. Musically, there's a lot going on in Madonna's work. I don't think The Beatles are a zillion miles ahead, maybe a hundred miles ahead or 75 miles, but definitely not a zillion.
Well, they're AT LEAST a Billion, LOL. I actually have a lot of respect for Madonna as an artist and businesswoman. Any artist, ANY artist, that has been around for over 20 years must be doing something right. She's not "manufactured", she is a great lyricist, and she has recorded some classic songs over the years. In the Top 50 artists of all time in terms of influence? Yeah, probably. Close to John Winston Lennon in musical brilliance? No.
