I wanna be with you but only if the remixes were better

"Madonna's 3rd single off Confessions, Get Togther is an apt follow-up to Sorry. Reminiscent of Stardust's Music Sounds Better With You in production, the track is progressive electronic with a pumping bassline.
However, as with the recent Madonna remixes, the maxi-single is severely dismal. Stuart Price's production may be commanding on Confessions but his remixes of the three Madonna singles have been lacklustre so far compared to his stellar work for Goldfrapp, The Killers and Coldplay. The Danny Howells and Dick Trevor Kinky Fun Mix is really neither kinky nor orgamsic at all, relying on repetitive beats to produce a generic dancefloor club mix. Then come the slightly more interesting mixes from revered remixers Tiefschwarz and James Holden. However, the two remixes are a complete departure from the original tune. Tiefschwarz manages to infuse more futurism into the song, giving it a slight Kraftwerk edge. James Holden's remix held great promise at the beginning but gets tiresome after a whole 8 minutes of repeated electronic blooping (read: irritating).The I Love New York remix by Stuart Price finally recovers some lost ground with a rather rocked-up version of the original.
And the original cover of the maxi-single is hideous if you do come to see it. The video has just premiered but it's just Madonna performing the song live superimposed against a futuristic animated background.
If Warner Brothers (and Madonna) know what they are doing to the recent Madonna releases and promotional blitz, they'd have some inkling that they are doing everything wrong or not doing anything well at all. Such a wasted opprotunity for an excellent track."

The problem with most club mixes these days is that they rip the melody out of each piece of music and you need to be on some mind altering substance to "appreciate" them. Most of the mixes retain the original melodic structure of the song while expanding the arrangements. The biggest sonic departure is the Jacques lu Cont mix. It starts with a very crunchy and jangly guitar line and builds from there. It will remind those familiar with the full album of "I Love New York". In all honesty, I don't really consider the last two mixes to be mixes at all. They sound like completely different songs and there's very little of Madonna in them. I don't really understand why the record companies allow remixers to sorta forget that the song is about the artist.
The version of "I Love New York" isn't too different from the album mix. It just pumps up the dance aspect of the song a couple notches and adds some filters and sweeps to the general mix. Very nicely done."
She totally dropped the "discoball" on this one!

"The album version is great. And so is the "remix" of ILNY (it's really just a dub of the original).
The trax inbetween are a complete mess!!!!!
To the previous reviewer's statement: "Most of the mixes retain the original melodic structure of the song while expanding the arrangements." You are clearly smoking something if you think the James Holden or Tiefschwarz mixes have ANY MELODIC STRUCTURE AT ALL. My initial reaction was to laugh during my first listen to both versions. No use of the verses or chorus appear in either mix; just a few words smattered over ATARI like sounds and electro splats. The JLC mix has none of the excitement of the other Stuart Price productions from Confessions. And the Howells & Trevor mix is listenable only by default.
I'd like to see one person try to dance to the James Holden mix. Hell, MADONNA should be forced to dance to it everynight for serving up this plate of poo."
