#39 – Madonna – “Vogue” – (1990)

This album’s full title is I’m Breathless: Music from and Inspired by the film “Dick Tracy.” I forgot Madonna was even in Dick Tracy – her performance was that memorable. This song, however, is quite memorable. The beat is quite dance-y and the best part is where Madonna starts rattling off “vogue” stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood: Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Joe DiMaggio, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Grace Kelly, Fred Astaire, Jean Harlow, Gene Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Rita Hayworth, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Lana Turner & Bette Davis. Perhaps the real reason I like this song so much, other than its catchiness, is the fact that I love the Golden Age of Hollywood. Madonna had a hit record in 1995 with Something to Remember and its hit singles “I’ll Remember” and the slightly haunting “You’ll See.”
