Flashback: Madonna scored her 9th UK Number 1 single with American Pie 17 years ago this week

Like so many moments in Madonna’s career, opinion was split over her cover of Don McLean’s cover of American Pie back in 2000. 

Released to promote her then-upcoming film Next Best Thing – a critically panned comedy-drama which she starred in alongside Rupert Everett – musos didn’t like that she’d taken on an American country-rock classic, chopped it in half (her version is considerably shorter than the eight-and-a-half minute original) and given it a synthy dance-pop twist. 

But if anyone can turn controversy into a success, it’s Madonna, and that she did: American Pie debuted at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart 17 years ago this week in March 2000 with first week sales of 140,000.

For all its naysayers, there were plenty of people who enjoyed her interpretation, including McLean himself, who described it at the time as “a gift from a goddess” and that her version is “mystical and sensual.” He also said the release “means that if I don’t want to, I don’t have to work again,” which may or may not have contributed to his glowing review.

American Pie became Madonna’s ninth UK Number 1 single following 1998’s Frozen, knocking off All Saints after their two-week run at the top with Pure Shores.

The song is Madge’s 15th biggest seller in the UK with sales of just over 400,000 across physical, digital and streaming equivalent sales. And it seems a handful of you are still discovering it; the track was downloaded 19 times in the UK last week, while one person managed to snap up a physical copy.

Madonna Releases Short Film Dedicated to ‘Women Who Fight For Freedom’

In honor of International Women’s Day, Madonna released today a short film, Madonna – Her-Story, created by Luigi & Lango in collaboration Vogue Germany. Starring Soko, Julia Cumming, Libby Larkin, Baylee Olsen and McCall Olsen, the cinematic black-and-white visual is dedicated to “all women who fight for freedom,” and includes samples from Madonna’s controversial Women’s March in D.C. speech.

Madonna’s Her-Story is broken into eight chapters, featuring everything from vicious dogs fights to dramatic dancing duets and the pop icon looking upon NYC with oversized angel wings. The soundtrack is without any new Madonna material, opting instead for aggressive industrial instrumentals by composer David Chalmin, at times softening the short with orchestral strings or romantic Italian folk.

A giant sign at the end reads, “We Should All Be Feminists,” which echoes Madonna’s final handwritten message, “Women’s Rights are Human Rights.” Watch Madonna – Her-Story in full, below.
