Madge pissed off Girls Gone Wild scumtard Joe Francis with the title of her latest - and that isn't the only admirable thing about this return to the straight-ahead club trance she holds dear. Sure, as wildness goes it's closer to Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope than Britney Spears, but the track (by Italian house producer Benny Benassi) smartly inverts the overpowering apocalypse pump of "Till the World Ends" into Euro-spa electro burble that's buoyant and warm-rinse soothing. It's the sound of a woman who hits the dancefloor for restoration more than craziness. After the "Mickey"-recalling head-scratcher of "Give Me All Your Luvin'," it's nice to see her get back into the groove.

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
