On October 8 1996, Madonna’s You Must Love Me music video premiered on MTV.
You Must Love Me was released by Warner Bros. as the first single from the Evita soundtrack. The song was written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and it won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1997.
Madonna filmed the music video for You Must Love Me on 31 August 1996 in California, while she was eight months pregnant with her daughter Lourdes. Madonna stood behind a piano to hide her pregnancy.
I just played You Must Love Me a couple of minutes ago on my trusty boombox and I love that song! A beautiful ballad, Madonna cries out her Rebel Heart and Brave Soul on this one! A song that will Live Forever-apologies to Oasis-that’s You Must Love Me! Madonna Forever in her Detroit/Evita brilliance!
