Best Friend

Album: MDNA Deluxe Edition (2012)
  • Madonna closes the deluxe edition of MDNA with this electro ballad, in which she laments the loss of a friendship after things went wrong. "Your picture's off the wall, but I'm still waiting for your call" she admits, before adding "And every man that walks through the door/ Will be compared to you." Like several other MDNA tracks critics and fans have queried how much the lyrics allude to the ending of her marriage to Guy Ritchie.

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdBest Friend-The absolute saddest song Madonna has written and sung to her Ciccone Name. The song is a sad lament about how she loved-and lost-a Brit rocker named Guy Ritchie and how losing him was and will always be the saddest event in Madonna's American Life. In this song, Madonna Lives to Tell about a sadness that will stay with her forever. All that's left between Madonna and Guy are good and sad memories-(Cry!) and (Sob)-of a Friendship and Love too beautiful and desperate to last! All Madonna Can do is Cry!
