Get Together

Madonna

Confessions on a Dancefloor (2005)

“Confessions on a Dancefloor” is the kind of album that seemed to be firmly in Madonna’s past — 12 straight songs of unapologetic dance pop, with barely a hint of the Kabbalah-tastic, yoga-centric self-exploration that characterized her past few efforts. But damn if this wasn’t a surprising return to form for the old broad, and “Get Together” epitomized the album’s success perfectly. It is borderline impossible not to love this tune, its dreamy synths propping up an easygoing and ultra-catchy vocal that drifts along effortlessly. The chorus charmingly boils down the basic premise of millions of pop songs: “Can we get together? I really wanna be with you.”

Also check out: Madonna completely re-worked “Erotica” for her Confessions Tour to the point where I now call it a separate song, “You Thrill Me,” a total favorite of mine — it would’ve made this list if it wasn’t technically still a song from the ’90s.
