The Top Ten
This will forever be my favorite Madonna song. It's the song that sparked my curiosity about her and made me realize her talent as an artist: both musically and visually.
**Debuted at #1 on the UK Singles Chart**
**Debuted and peaked at #2 on Billboard Hot 100** - theOpinionatedOne
Had it not have been for the controversy surrounding Madonna after her stint as Mistress Dita during promotion for Erotica, I believe this song would have been a #1. The whole Bedtime Stories album was similarly overlooked.
