On October 2 1995, the music video for I Want You made its world premiere on VH1 in the U.S.
Shot on August 5th and 6th in Long Island City, New York by director Earle Sebastien, the video was inspired by the short story A Telephone Call – A Terrible Day Tomorrow by American author, Dorothy Parker.
Madonna did local DC artist Marvin Gaye proud in her cover of I Want You-and she turns the song into one of her best-and absolute saddest-ballads, songs and performances! Her sadness radiates from the screen into the performance!
Not just sadness, more like obsession. This is one of my favorite videos of hers. Just one more proof she really can act…in music videos. 🙂
This was the first single from the collection, but something happened and it never became a physical single. Instead of the alternate version, I think they should’ve put The Look of Love as song number 14, and Promise to Try should’ve been before track Oh Father. One song about her mum and one about her dad. That would’ve made it so much better imo.
