Madonna rarity leaks
Suddenly there are a clutch of unreleased Madonna songs hitting the net. The latest is a simple piano ballad called If You Go Away, supposedly recorded around 2004. It has been mentioned as being a part of her abandoned Hello Suckers musical, but that seems odd given that it was written by Jacques Brel in 1959. Tidbit: the English lyric was translated by Rod McKuen, the man whose voice you hear at the very beginning of Madonna's Drowned World. She sampled a snippet of his track Why I Follow The Tigers.
Get it from the lovely Camille at Hard Candy...
