"Hung Up" is the first single off Madonna's tenth studio album Confessions on a Dance Floor.

Background

"Hung Up" contains a sample of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) ", the success of the pop group ABBA, for which Madonna personally sought permission to use the songwriters Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. Musically, it is influenced by the 1970s pop, rhythm and a powerful chorus and the sound clockwise background, symbolizing the fear of losing time. The letter is written as a typical dance and song talks about a strong independent woman who has suffered from problems in their relationships.

Composition

The song is a dance-pop and disco song. "Hung Up" is set in common time, and has a moderate dance-beat tempo of 120 beats per minute. The key of the song is in D minor with Madonna's vocal range spanning from G3 to B♭4. The song progresses in the following chord progressions of Dm–F–C–Dm in the verses and Dm–F–Am–Dm–Dm–F–Am–Dm in the chorus, and changes to B♭–F–A–Dm–B♭–F–A–Dm for the bridge. "Hung Up" uses the sound of a ticking clock to symbolize fear of wasted time.

Lyrics

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I'm caught up
I don't know what to do

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
I don't know what to do

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you

Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

Ring ring ring goes the telephone
The lights are on but there's no-one home
Tick tick tock it's a quarter to two
And I'm done
I'm hanging up on you

I can't keep on waiting for you
I know that you're still hesitating
Don't cry for me
'cause I'll find my way
you'll wake up one day
but it'll be too late

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
