Love Spent

Songfacts®:

  • 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.
