Get Together



Lyrics

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion, confusion, confusion,...

Down, down, down in your heart
Find, find, find the secret
Turn, turn, turn your head around
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right

Do you believe in love at first sight
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better
Too much confusion, come on over here

Can we get together
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too

I searched, I searched, I searched my whole life
To find, to find, to find the secret
And all I did was open up my eyes
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right

Do you believe that we can change the future
Do you believe I can make you feel better

Can we get together
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too
Can we get together
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
I'll make you feel better
If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end

Do you believe in love at first sight
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better
Too much confusion, come on over here

Can we get together
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too
Can we get together
I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you feel the same way too

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
I'll make you feel better
If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end

Single

Get Together, the single This clubby, feel-good song is the 3rd single from Confessions On A Dance Floor, released commercially June 6 in the US and a few days later in several European markets. The UK release date was July 24, 2006 to coincide with the British leg of the Confessions Tour. The single cover features Madonna together with her band and dancers.

Thanks to the remixes by Jacques Lu Cont, Danny Howells, Tiefschwarz and James Holden, Get Together became Madonna's 36th #1 hit on the Hot Dance chart, confirming her status as the 'Dancing Queen'. It failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, but entered the Bubbling Under chart, peaking at #6. The single managed to crack the top 10 in Spain (#1), Hungary (#1), Canada (#4), Italy (#2), Finland (#6), UK (#7) and Slovakia (#9).

Get Together was nominated for 'Best Dance Recording' at the 2007 Grammy Awards.


Video

Get Together, the video With Madonna performing on her Confessions Tour, there was no time to make a studio video for Get Together. Instead of opting for a live performance video, commercial and video director team Logan had an animation video made, using footage from her performance at London's Koko Club (November 2005) which was digitally altered and animated onto a digital futuristic city/nature background, which is reminiscent to the video style of Daft Punk. The video premiered online and on music TV channels mid-June 2006.

Almost a year later, in May 2007, ICON members received a different version of the animated video, directed by Eugene Rockstar. This ICON version features on the Celebration Video Collection.




Tour

Get Together @ Confessions Tour After opening her Confessions Tour with Future Lovers, Madonna performs Get Together on the main stage, dancing with two male dancers. The backdrop is in all tones of red with pictures by Steven Klein. She teases the fans on front row (including yours truly) by lying down on the catwalk and seducingly rolling around. To see her that close, it's certainly *not* an illusion!
