Top Ten Most Relaxing Songs by MadonnatheOpinionatedOne Madonna is known for her legendary dancefloor bangers and her deep, sensual balladry. But somewhere in between these is another niche Madonna has a knack for... relaxing chillout songs, a niche she started pursuing with Erotica. (Some of these are ballads, too. )
The Top Ten
The Björk-penned trance song that led Madonna to create one of her best music videos yet. This song does for me exactly what the lyrics are saying. - theOpinionatedOne
The beat of this song is hypnotic. And the whispered vocals are extremely calming and titillating at the same time. - theOpinionatedOne
The jazzy closer of Erotica. When I first listened to this song, I forgot I was listening to an album with the purpose of ranking the songs from best to worst. It literally felt surreal. - theOpinionatedOne
The lyrics of this song, are some of the most confessional of Madonna's career. And she actually sounds like the little girl she was when her mother died. The minimal instrumental of this song paired with the narrative create an atmosphere of uncertainty. It's sad and tragic. Madonna still seems lost but somehow at peace. None of that had anything to do with how this song is relaxing but whatever. - theOpinionatedOne
Am I the only one who finds this song very creepy?
Not at all! It's supposed to be unsettling. It's ironic that the album has such an ambient mood (except for the title track) yet it's titled after the most upbeat (and different sounding) track. - theOpinionatedOne
This ballad has an eerie calming vibe about it. The bass synthesizer and sparse drums create an atmosphere that sort of contradicts the seriousness of the lyrical content. As Madonna sings "If I live to tell the secret I have learned" I feel like the melody is saying "You'll make it. Everything will be ok." And Madonna's low key delivery, different from most of her ballads where she tends to flex her vocal chords, she stays somewhat restrained here. Very soothing. - theOpinionatedOne
I like this song. And I like Madonna too. - RockFashionista
Tragic but still the music is relaxing. - theOpinionatedOne
The calming opener of "Ray of Light" with a melody and lyrics indicating an album of self-reflection. It was the first time Madonna reflected on the consequences of her fame and as a result, she finally felt at peace. Peace... relaxation. Huh? - theOpinionatedOne
My favorite Madonna song. - theOpinionatedOne
The beat and melody are so relaxing!
For a dance track, there's something really calming about the melody of "Jump". It's the best of both worlds... Dancefloor ready and chillout savvy. - theOpinionatedOne
Or as I like to call it, "The Yoga Song" or "The Techno Prayer". - theOpinionatedOne
How could you forget this masterpiece? Beautiful, romantic and relaxing!
