  1. People this is a studio album not a soundtrack!!! The soundtrack are the songs from the film. The score is also avaialble. I’m Breathless is a studio album that contains 3 songs from the film and are all performed by Madonna inspired by the film with a show tune vibe, making it her 5th studio album!! I remember when it came it in May 1990 people called it the 5th studio album by Madonna!!! So Madame X is her 15th studio album!!!

  2. I agree! I’m Breathless is a brilliant record in its own right because some of Madonna’s best songs are on this album namely Sondheim ballad Sooner or Later, ballad for Sean Something to Remember and immortal #1 hit Vogue. Madonna did a brilliant job on I’m Breathless!
