Madonna visits dance gym in Hung Up

Madonna’s music video, “Hung Up”, connects with a variety of American audiences through the exploration of dance in African American, Hispanic, and Chinese dance cultures. Madonna turns up to a dance gym in blue track suit, stripping down to a pink leotard. As she goes through her warm up exercises young people on the street demonstrate their limber dance routines to each other. Madonna’s movements are mirrored, and bettered, by young people at a bus stop, in a Chinese restaurant, on a train, and in a night club. Finally we see Madonna herself joining the night scene, dancing on a Dancing Stage Fusion machine.

According to the story at Wikipedia, two versions of the video exist. The “short version” uses the radio edit of the song and ends during the club scenes when Madonna is dancing with Daniel ‘Cloud’ Campos. The longer version uses the album version of the song and ends with additional krump dance scenes.

Lyrics for Hung Up

Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I’m caught up
I don’t know what to do

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
I don’t know what to do

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Ring, ring, ring goes the telephone
The lights are on but there’s no-one home
Tick tick tock it’s a quarter to two
And I’m done
I’m hangin’ up on you

I can’t keep on waiting for you
I know that you’re still hesitating
Don’t cry for me
’cause I’ll find my way
You’ll wake up one day
But it’ll be too late

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing (Every little thing)
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you

Waiting for your call (Waiting for your call)
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

(instrumental)

Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by… so slowly
Time goes by-

So slowly, so slowly, so slowly,
So slowly, so slowly, so slowly,
So slowly, so slowly, so slowly,
So slowly, so slowly, so slowly,
So slowly, so slowly, so-

I don’t know what to do

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

Every little thing (Every little thing)
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you

Waiting for your call (Waiting for your call)
I’m fed up
I’m tired of waiting on you

(Fade until clock ticking)

    IL “PUNTO IN ALTO” DI MADONNA
    di V.S.Gaudio

    Il “per-me” infinito di Madonna le permette di sottrarsi allo sgomento della conclusione; così come è il suo passo, questo muoversi a mezzopunto, a “gocciolona”; sì, del Bonheur, del momento sospeso che, alla concisione, al rigore e alla finitezza del passo legato, interpone la leggerezza del camminare.
    “Hap” del “per-me”, për mua, che “happika” i significanti dell’immagine, la fa centrare, la fa mettere a fuoco, permette lo scatto giusto:
    come il “punto e virgola”che apre e chiude lo scatto,
    il suo Hap, che è il momento del “punto e virgola”, apre, appunto: hap, e chiude, questo aprirsi, questo allargamento appeso; “happikato”, si potrebbe dire in un dialetto saraceno, come appunto è appoggiato alla sua gruccia il punto e virgola; o il “punto in alto” dei greci; che supporta apposizioni piene di sottigliezze; permuta desideri e capricci; lustra quello scatto giusto sospendendolo eternamente e rendendolo inconfutabile all’infinito; sorregge apostrofi ed enfasi, esitazioni e ripieghi, rilassi e sospensivi.
