Madonna shot onto the scene as a boy toy with a party-till-you-drop attitude. Or so we thought. She ended up being a dynamo dedicated to her craft, disciplined to the hilt, desperate to overcome her tough Michigan beginning and take over the world. She changed the landscape of music and women's lives forever, whether people will admit it or not. This is the first song where her voice started to change, becoming less nasal and more defined. Her haunting and strong alto range tells the tale of a nameless person singing of a longing for beauty in the midst of a world of sorrow. You felt her pain, the betrayals of the past which still stung, the desire to create a life of peace in impossible circumstances. The simple but deep and dark music underscores the subtle work Madonna performed here.

This is the song that led us to understanding the "new" Madonna, a lovely but sad lady underneath the vivacious persona. The simple dress and plain grey background in the video matches the tone of the song perfectly. This was Madonna: Stripped, but she started her new musical style with a whisper, not a shout. The lyrics are meaningful to anyone who has seen the dark side of mankind. Live long enough, and you'll understand the lyrics on a whole new level every time you listen. One of her finest songs, which was on an underrated album.

Just another one of thousands of songs from years gone by that anyone can go back and pick up and say, "Oh,yeah, I remember now." "That makes sense now, i didn't understand that before." Many things are like this.

The lyrics to this song are superb, and they are more than matched by the music. Its slow, mysterious tempo makes you fall in love with her.

Vintage Madonna. Takes me back a few years. I had to have this when I saw it was available. Nostalgia.
