Today in Madonna History: December 21, 1996

On December 21 1996, Madonna’s You Must Love Me (the lead single from EVITA) spent its final week on Billboard’s Hot 100 Airplay Chart in the USA. The hit single spent a total of 9 weeks on the chart.

Peter Keough of the Boston Phoenix had this to say about the song:

You Must Love Me is an aching farewell that dispels the illusion of a romance-of-convenience to reveal the inescapable love and tragedy beneath”.

  1. Easily her most aching, saddest and most beautiful ballad, Madonna started crying on You Must Love Me-and she let you know about it! I absolutely love You Must Love Me! Love Madonna! Madonna Forever in her sadness and Detroit brilliance!
