After a banjo-led intro, we hear on this disco-tinged song Madonna asking her object of devotion to "Love me like your money." The conflating of love and money is of course a topic the Material Girl has sung about on a number of previous occasions.
The song was co-produced by Madonna and William Orbit and is one of five tracks the pair collaborated on for MDNA. The relationship between the Queen of Pop and the English knob-twiddler has been a successful one. He produced most of the songs on 1998's Ray Of Light, which won several Grammy Awards and a year later, they produced the Material Girl's Austin Powers soundtrack song, "Beautiful Stranger." which won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
