Did It With Madonna

After the Androids hit it big with ‘Do It With Madonna’, when the Material Girl knows your name, doors may well open. The group landed a dream support gig for Kiss at Telstra Dome last month, that’s a reality frontman Tim Henwood still has trouble believing. “‘Do It With Madonna’ took me 20 minutes to write. I spent from midnight to 5am demoing it one morning, and now Madonna has actually heard it,” he told Michael Dwyer of The Age. “It never occurred to me that would happen. It was funny, though, because at the time I remember being careful what I was saying just in case any of them did hear it – ‘Don’t insult anyone. How would you like it if you were Pink?'” Read more.

Madonna Loves ‘Do It With Madonna’

The Androids frontman Tim Henwood tells Undercover News that their breakout hit ‘Do It With Madonna’ is a big hit with the song’s main subject. “What we got back was she loves it” Henwood said.

The Androids Talk About ‘Do It With Madonna’

The Androids chatted with ABC Broadband’s FlyScreen about their Australian hit ‘Do It With Madonna’. They say that Madonna has been sent a copy of the video, and they also said they are big fans of Kylie Minogue but “Madonna’s been doing it a little bit longer,” so they had to name the song after her. Then they phoned some fan named Teresa and sang ‘I’d Rather Do It With Teresa.’ Abc.net.au has since removed the video.
