A few days ago, producer extraordinare Guy Sigsworth shared Jem‘s ”Silly Thing” demo on Soundcloud. Madonna fans will know this track as Nothing Fails, as it was eventually recorded by her for the “American Life” album.
This is the work-in-progress demo of a song I originally wrote with Jem, and which later became “Nothing Fails”, co-written and recorded by Madonna. It’s over ten years old, it’s just a demo etc etc etc.
It’s really interesting to hear how this song started out, I really enjoy this and wish there was also a demo sung by Madonna in this style.
