The is the only Madonna song to make me cry
Quite possibly the most profound lyrics Madonna has ever written.
"Freedom comes when you learn to let go. Creation comes when you learn to say No." - theOpinionatedOne
This is masterpiece,you can't listen it without cry
The most beautifulsong ie ever heard, it's about her mother dying
Wonderfully beautiful and touching song! - Irina2932
This song is heartbreakingly nostalgic.
Even her vocal sounds so great here. The song is moving - Irina2932
Madonna's vocals on this song tear my heart apart. Those vocals with the growing melody right up untill the last part are like no other song she ever made.
The phrase "You didn't mean to be cruel, somebody hurt you too" just kill me... and the music telling you that she still feel the pain... it's beautiful sadness.
The saddest of all, definitely. The lyrics in the end: "You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too" and the melody growing and growing until only unbearable sadness and pain remain.
Looking to the past at her late mother and seeing herself carried into the future through her daughter..it's a strange and powerful juxtaposition
I love her performance of this song - Irina2932
The melancholic sound on this one is strong. The ongoing guitar rhythm with her soft pure voice. The futuristic sounds create a magical feeling.
Great performance plus very touching lyrics - Irina2932
This song always makes me cry,it reminds me of being late to see my mum at the bus station 😞
Very interesting lyrics. It seems like people can not trust themselves because there is not much honesty in a divided society.
Madonna's first sad song! Still one of the most memorable tracks from the 80's - Irina2932
Too bad Madonna didn't make this beautiful track a single. Nice lyrics - Irina2932
This song makes me want to run from life
At least in top 10 - Brxtney
Its musical arrangements is marvelous. 'Bad Girl' is one of my most favorite Madonna songs - Irina2932
This song completely caught me off guard when I first heard it. It’s a wonderful, simple song. Madonna sounds great, and the lyrics were exactly what I needed when I found the song.
I even cried while listening to it. Amazing song - Irina2932
This song is a 1000 x times sadder than Live To Tell and over 100 times sadder than The Power of Goodbye.
Can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned!
This is the ONLY thing that makes me cry. The fact that she is surprised that someone could love her through thick and thin🥺
