Madonna's Top 50 Songs

Originally posted 3/29/12. Updated 8/16/13.

Happy birthday to Madonna, born 8/16/1958. This list was first posted on the DMDB Facebook page on 8/16/11 in honor of Madonna’s birthday and has been updated a couple of times since. As with most DMDB lists, this one consolidates chart figures, sales, awards, and placement on best-of lists – both general DMDB lists and Madonna-specific lists (see resources at bottom of page). In addition, appearances on compilation albums are factored in.

As of the 12th edition of Joel Whitburn’s Top Pop Singles (2009), she ranks #4 all time in regards to her success on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The DMDB ranks her in the top 10 acts of all time. “Like a Virgin”, “Into the Groove”, “Like a Prayer”, “Vogue”, “Take a Bow”, and “Ray of Light” all make the DMDB’s list of the top 1000 songs of the 20th century. “Music” and “Hung Up” make the DMDB’s list of the top 100 songs of the 21st century.
