  • Sample
  • Video Still
  • Video Discription

By the 16th June please.

Well then, start researching and put it up. -- eo 00:42, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

I do not know how. When i edit people delete so i wanted an expert to do it!!! how do we get sound clips?

Maybe if you ask Hotwiki he might upload a sample for you, as he has uploaded all the Madonna song samples. Also, if you want to add to the article, when you make an edit, please include a summary of what you did. -- Underneath-it-All 01:26, 16 June 2006 (UTC)


That is a fake cover - it needs to be removed.


Is this article relevant to Wikipedia as the single has yet to be released? Please provide citations or else I'm afraid it is going to have to be merged into Confessions on a Dance Floor. —Eternal Equinox | talk 15:09, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Of cores it’s relevant; It details a single that is likely to be released in the near future (2 Months?). Absolutely no different to pages detailing up and coming films (Ice Age 2: The Meltdown), software (Windows Vista), books ( Harry Potter: Book 7) etc. --UkNews 23:37, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
Films are different — they are announced sometimes a year in advance, however, when an album is going to be released six months from now, the third single is not chosen that far in advance. —Eternal Equinox | talk 17:38, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
It makes no difference when it’s chosen; the point of fact is that "Get Together" has been chosen and will be released in the near future. It would be hypocritical to remove this page and not others detailing future releases, whatever the medium. --UkNews 14:21, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Please see Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not#Wikipedia is not a crystal ball for more details. —Eternal Equinox | talk 00:55, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
To quote; "Individual scheduled or expected future events should only be included if the event is notable and almost certain to take place" - Warner Bros records have confirmed the single release, therefore it falls under the "almost certain to take place" category. Further more the article comes under this section "Of course, we do and should have articles about notable artistic works, essays, or credible research that embody predictions" - Madonna is an extremely notable artist in the music industry with great interest surrounding her work. This article will only become more popular once the single starts receiving regular airplay - like on BBC Radio 2 today - therefore it would be pointless and contravene that article by deleting it. --UkNews 22:43, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
I am not the one writing the rules here. I was merely following Wikipedia guidlines. Since this website covers all subjects possible, this doesn't make Madonna significantly more important than The All-American Rejects or Goldfrapp. —Eternal Equinox | talk 21:36, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
It has nothing to do with Madonna being more or less important than anyone else. The article you presented me with clearly states "notable artists", of which Madonna is one - Therefore you are not following the guidelines. Considering the page is here in the first place and clearly receiving attention and being tweaked regularly, the users of Wikipedia feel it is also "notable" and "relevant". There is even an official "future single" Wikipedia tag - Why would this exist if it contravened guidelines? --UkNews 21:38, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
You know, you could still make an article for a song even it's not a single as long there is informations about the song. --hottie 17:08, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

HMV UK confirms that the single will be released on May 29th:;-1;-1;-1&sku=498849 Rimmers 15:50, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Since there is a source, the article is allowed to remain. Otherwise, it would have been merged. —Eternal Equinox | talk 20:47, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
At last! --UkNews 12:44, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

What is "Australian Hot 30"[edit]

I live in AU & I'm not sure what's being reffered to here.. It's not even been released yet! —Preceding unsigned comment added by -Anthony- (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure what it is either...also, shouldn't only official singles & dance charts be included in the charts section? -- Underneath-it-All 16:08, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, some include iTunes charts as well though. —Preceding unsigned comment added by -Anthony- (talkcontribs)

lowies hot 30 countdown —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Lowie?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by -Anthony- (talkcontribs)

Personally I feel it should be removed, as nobody really knows what the chart is. Only official charts and iTunes charts should be included. Charts from radio stations should not be included, as their are too many of them. -- Underneath-it-All 15:36, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

South Africa Hot 30?[edit]

Just wondering if this is the official chart. I tried to search online for the official chart, but only found this. -- Underneath-it-All 18:03, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't think that is the official chart. Listed at United World Singles Chart: "The South African sales and airplay chart is merged into one to form the official singles chart which is published weekly". From what I've seen, "Get Together" has yet to enter the record chart. —Eternal Equinox | talk 21:23, 7 June 2006 (UTC)


"iTunes albums & EP chart"[edit]

Which iTunes? USA? Or is there a global one..?

U.S. one. -- Underneath-it-All 15:26, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm a little iffy on including iTunes charts. iTunes is just one of many retail and online stores that contribute to Nielsen Soudscan, which in turn is used to ccalculate "official" charts. Besides, aren't iTunes charts updated daily? How can a chart peak be tracked if it changes day-to-day? To me it's kinda like including "Barnes & Noble" chart. -- eo 21:30, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
I understand what you mean. Plus after all those iTunes charts were added it just looked messy. -- Underneath-it-All 01:21, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup tag[edit]

Just curious about the cleanup tag.... Any particular reason why it was put on this article? Which section(s) are being questioned? I don't see any comments about it in this Talk Page. -- eo 02:11, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Well, it needs a clean up. It's another bloated Madonna single page, loaded with irrevelant information all written in a fan page style Paul75 23:03, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Alternate Video[edit]

I'm sure you know of it. Should it be added?-- (talk) 10:59, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

No, there's no source for it. --Legolas (talk2me) 11:06, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

The source is YouTube and it's in fact the only official video on any Madonna channel. Should this version not be referenced as the official video and not the alternate? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:49, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Alternative Video 2[edit]

The alternative version of the video is available in Shouldn't it be added? --Watquaza (talk) 05:05, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

I can't watch it due to copyrights, but in my opinion, it should be added in either the MV section or as an external link (if global, better). Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 05:49, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Use this [1] to watch it, and in the part below where it says "Featured Videos" you can visualize that it's the alternative version. It's likely to be official too, then it should be in both sections. --Watquaza (talk) 00:24, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
I remember seeing two versions of the video indeed on MTV. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:51, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Does anyone have the dvd of Celebration? I think that version is the one that is featured. --Watquaza (talk) 02:39, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I removed the addition of the second image from the video. It fails WP:NFCC#8 and WP:NFCC##a at present since the alternate version is not being discussed at all. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:14, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Correct Video referenced?[edit]

The only video referenced is one that is not in fact the official video on Madonna's YouTube channel. In fact, the only way to access such video as references is to locate it on a lower-quality site. Therefore, is it even correct to list the video referenced as the "main" video and not even reference the alternate? It seems that the one currently labeled as "alternate" is in fact the official video. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Okaysdonny (talkcontribs) 13:53, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
