The Top Ten

1 Frozen

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

2 Secret

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.

**Peaked at #3 on Hot 100** - theOpinionatedOne

3 Ray of Light

The song that redefined club music.

**Peaked at #5 on Hot 100** - theOpinionatedOne

The song that began Madonna's Latin love affair.

In my opinion, Madonna's best song of the 2000's. Wait till you see the injustice this song received in America.
