To honour the best-selling female artist of all time on her 60th birthday, weve rated all her full single releases
78. Hanky Panky (1990)
Even creators of brilliant pop can go wrong. Telling us theres nothing like a good spanky over farty, end-of-the-pier synthesisers? Madonnas nadir.
77. Hey You (2007)
A corny charity co-write with Pharrell Williams for Live Earth. Save yourself/Dont rely on anyone else goes the planet-rescuing advice. Cheers!
76. American Pie (2000)
Madonna inhabiting a white male American classic was a great idea on paper. Unendurable tweeness resulted.
75. Die Another Day (2003)
This 2003 Bond theme aimed for a sound of icy, imperial tyranny. Instead, its cut-up electronics sounded half-dead.
74. Revolver feat. Lil Wayne (2009)
Madonna loves metaphors. Over an oddly laboured beat, were told her bodys fully loaded. Bring ya knife into a gunfight, she adds. There have been better ideas.
73. Girl Gone Wild (2012)
A Benny Benassi-assisted club banger, with a terrible title. The filter sweeps used brilliantly throughout Confessions on a Dancefloor dont sparkle here.
72. Fever (1993)
Unnecessary trance-era update of pops most achingly simple song about sex, with electronics that diffuse any thrill. Bring back Peggy Lees double bass.
71. Me Against the Music (2003)
Madonna is usually better when shes striding alone. This duet with Britney Spears is all obvious raunch, without solid roots.
