Madonna is a "Girl Gone Wild"

Your MADGEsty, you are ever so clever, changing the name of MDNA's second single from Girls Gone Wild to Girl Gone Wild to (allegedly) prevent a lawsuit from Girls Gone Wild creator, Joe Francis.

I quite like the song, particularly in comparison to Gimme All Your Luvin. Relative to that track, Girl Gone Wild is smooth and slinky due to the production work of Italian cousins Benny and Alle Benassi. Still, it's not perfect. The song is a bit under-produced. It could certainly use an extra sonic layer. Having loved the duo's work on Kelis' Brave and Chris Brown's Beautiful People, I'm surprised that Girl Gone Wild seems sub-par, as though it was pieced together from their leftover pile. 

Lastly, I wish that Madonna's words were more meaningful. Where are the analytical and introspective lyrics that made the Ray of Light and Confessions on a Dance Floor albums so profound? Hopefully, they're within the rest of MDNA.

What do all of you think?
