  1. So ahead of its time. Incredible song that still gets me hooked when I hear it today. Should’ve been a bigger hit than it was.

  2. Hey Rich, the title cut to Bedtime Stories-was-and is a major artistic statement by and for Madonna because in this song, Madonna cried about media-death onslaught and why it crushed and affected her-Madonna cried in sadness and tears-“And inside/We’re all still wet!/Longing and yearning/How can I explain how I feel?”-For once, Madonna has no answers to this terrible exorcism she’s experiencing
    -just and nagging feeling that life has to go on for Madonna so the she makes the best of it!

  3. I didn’t really care for it at the time and thought there were better, more radio-friendly songs on the album. But over the years, I’ve come to appreciate it. I’ve always thought the video was amazing.
