W.E. Stands For Win Everything


Hey people! Yes, you. It's giveaway time! You may recall that last week I posted a photograph of the generally well-known singer who goes by the name Madonna at the premiere of her directorial effort W.E. here in New York, where I somehow managed to wrangle a space only a few feet away from her. (Craziness.) Well the movie's out in limited release this upcoming weekend, and the soundtrack - featuring Madonna's song "Masterpiece," which she won a Golden Globe for - is out digitally today, and I have five count them five copies of the soundtrack to give away. And not the digital kind, the actual hard-copy of the CD! Old school. And not just that, you also get a mini-poster for the film. It's a bonanza, I tell ya. A Madonna Bonanza. A Madnanza? A Bondonna? Anyway. Here's the official stuff:

The Weinstein Company presents W.E.
A film by Madonna
In Select Theaters Feb 3. Check your local listings.

W.E. tells the story of two fragile but determined women - Wally Winthrop and Wallis Simpson - separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward's VIII's abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But Wally's research, including several visits to the Sotheby's auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple's life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, W.E. intertwines Wally's journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward (James D'Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.

Enter to win a copy of W.E. - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring Madonna's brand new track "Masterpiece" - winner of the 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song - and score by Abel Korzeniowski.

Madonna's masterpiece? I have a mind to make some snarky comment but I'll just go with "Ray of Light" (song and album).

Her masterpiece is definitely Ray of Light. I honestly cannot think of a more perfect song.

"Beautiful Stranger" is Madonna's masterpiece*

It's easily one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard, but it never sounds cheep, somehow. Madonna's voice in it is so... I dunno. It seems elevated. I LOVE Madonna, but sometimes her voice is not the best. "Beautiful Stranger" really is beautifully sung. Um... what else to say about it.... Well, I think it's kind of a universal song. Fun pop, but it kind of transcends that. lol

* I feel ridiculous saying that. Bitch has, like, many masterpieces. Beautiful Stranger is just my current favorite.

Oh, and it's king_of_versailles@hotmail.com just in case I do win (omg! pretty please)

Madonna's masterpiece would, for me, be "Into the Groove." It was the first time that I remember listening to the radio to hear a specific song. The fact that I could not get it easily (I had to walk 8 miles to Summit place mall) because they didn't release it as a single, made me want it more. I floated all the way home- ecstatic that I was able to find it. (I had to call around- no internet!) That song made me walk even further to see "her movie" "Desperately Seeking Susan and dragging two of my straight friends to boot. I still think it was a flawless example of fresh pop music for the time.

I hate to say this and I'm kinda suprised nobody has said it yet, but Vogue is probably her masterpiece. While it is NOT my favorite Madonna song by far, let's face it, the song was so popular it became a verb. She's "vogueing" he's "vogueing". Strike a pose.
As I'm typing this Entertainment Tonight just ran a story about Madonna appearing on Anderson Cooper's show and even though they called her the Material Girl they ran a picture of her "vogueing". Go and watch the video and see if it doesn't alter your posture just a tiny bit!


BTW, Take A Bow will always be my favorite song by her. Her voice was simply perfect in that song.
