God only knows how Listen is infront of this!

Take a bow has been named by many organizations as one of the best ballads ever. It's beautiful

Madonna vocals are warm and strong.

Madonna does the best ballads to me, even though she doesn't have the fifth octave like Mariah who cares?

Crazy for you, Liver to tell, Spanish eyes, Rain, Take a bow, Power of goodbye. The list goes on and on. Madonna is the Queen of pop but also the Queen of pop ballads.

All hail her majesty MADONNA.
One of the best ballads of all time. Madonna is such an underrated and underestimated ballad artist.
