Miles Away (Remixes)
This woman’s marketing ability is both genius and shameless. When the Hard Candy album dropped and we heard this song for the first time, we all knew there was trouble in paradise with Ritchie. “Miles” was too specific and scathing to be just another aimless “love gone wrong” song for the masses like “Sorry,” and it set the table perfectly for the tabloid rush that followed months later surrounding their marriage. Now that the divorce is final, what better time to capitalize on the media frenzy than to release the single that began it all? The rumor is that this is the last physical single Madonna will be releasing through Warner Bros., which is sad, but at least now that iTunes has caught up, all digital music outlets carry high quality files. So don’t cry too much, Argentina.
