You Are The One and Shame
Madonna hardcore fans are well aware of the online leaking happened a couple of weeks ago of two unreleased Madonna demo songs from the Erotica album: You Are The One and Shame.
Sometime ago we had a chance to talk to Tony Shimkin, co-producer and co-author of some of the Erotica’s greatest songs, and we asked him a couple of tidbits about these two unreleased songs.
“Right, there were two song we did that were not released. You Are The One and Shame“, Tony explains to us.
“You Are The One was an uptempo song and it was very catchy, one true thing is that Madonna never came up with any forgettable melodies. Unfortunately not every song always makes it onto the final CD. Maybe one day she will release a collection of unheard songs but I doubt it. I still have a cassette copy of those early demos. I gotta transfer it to digital one day for posterity.
Shame was extremely hooky as well, although the chorus may have been a little too close in melody to another song with the same title, yet it was still very much in keeping with the rest of the material recorded and yes her alter ego of Dita may have been born out of that song as well.
