Would it help if I said that Like a Virgin was genuinely groundbreaking?
I'm not generally immensely fond of heavily synthesized music. The exceptions tend to be somewhat dark stylistically. I have absolutely nothing personally or uniquely against either woman.
I take back saying that Lady Gaga's voice was better than Madonna's. General 'quality' of a voice is entirely subjective and in this case I'm not terribly enamored with either. It does seem like she has a broader vocal range but that might be a misapprehension on my part.
What are our thoughts on Christina Hendricks? I find her much more attractive than many of the 'sex symbols' who are thrown at me through our culture but she's still not terribly appealing to me.
