  1. My Madonna Top 10. Here comes.

    1. Live to Tell-Her First Reinvention and still the best Madonna Song of all time. Madonna Cries in
    Live to Tell!
    2. Get Together-The Bunny Rabbit Near-Hit That Got Away from Her! Madonna is happy
    in Get Together!
    3. Take a Bow-The audition for Evita that literally saved Madonna’s life-Part 1.
    4. Hung Up-The rocker that returned Madonna to prominence-Part 2.
    5. Like a Prayer-Madonna at her most Fiery and Passionate!
    6. Ray of Light-Hardest Rocker of Madonna’s life!
    7. Music-A True Ciccone anthem!
    8. I Want You-Madonna waits by the phone and she cries alone! Neither Sean nor Guy are present! Her heartbreak and tears are all too real. Madonna’s best cover!
    9. Rain-Honoring her mother, crying Ciccone tears!
    10. Title Cut-A song that delivers-“an Invitation to the Dance of Life! I celebrate Madonna in Her Brilliance! Love you Madge!

  2. The picture quality (as least the European version) was abysmal – horrible compression. I guess WB went for the cheap option and used a single-layer disc since Madonna was leaving them. And the video for I Want You looked like someone hadn’t pointed their aerial in the right direction. Terrible ghosting.
