line 'em up


count 'em down e-o-e-o 


MADONNA'S 20 GREATEST VIDEOS 
from Rolling Stone Magazine July 2016 
(ranking by them, commentary by me) 

20. HUNG UP
the "street walking" scene is #everything...no leotards even present.

19. FEVER 
this was a surprise 2 me, no "bad girl"? but then i remembered she is shellacked in silvery-glittery full body paint...that deserves a nod. 

18. MUSIC 
flossed out soon-to-be pimp mama & all her "subtle" references. 

17. FROZEN 
was obsessed with this. the darkness, the hair, the yoga...that dog & when she smashes into birds??? are u fucking kidding me?!?

16. BURNING UP 
again, another surprise, no "lucky star"? but there is something magical about this rough draft of the Madonna that was headed our way. it's perfect in it's imperfection. 

15. HUMAN NATURE 
one word: chihuahua. period. 

14. BEDTIME STORY 
so good it was shown in movie theaters! truly a mini-movie. 

13. OH FATHER 
looking like a silent movie star as the snow falls, cold & beautiful. 

12. JUSTIFY MY LOVE 
banned for a damn good reason: it's damn good! 

11. MATERIAL GIRL 
she does Marilyn proud. maybe just a tad bit more slutty & sassy then the original TBH. 

10. CHERISH 
mer-men. next. 

9. LIKE A VIRGIN 
a shinning example of 80's pop music videos. the on beat pulsing of that lion's tongue?? c'mon give it up. 

8. VOGUE 
GASP! #8...that really surprised me. but it does get a little cut-throat as we narrow these down. but still i'm breathless that it's not switched w/#3 (stay tuned).

7. PAPA DON'T PREACH
blond hair. red lips. black flats. black bodysuit. dance routine. DONE! 

6. RAIN 
shot in b&w & then colorized. flawless beauty & images. 

5. LIKE A PRAYER 
i could not, would not & did not stop watching this (& the pepsi commercial that went along w/it). i actually haven't stopped watching. her undulating in front of those burning crosses is the pop music moment that EVERY other female artist from now until the end of days, wishes they could have. 

4. TAKE A BOW 
no bull, this is beautiful from start to finish. such a sweet song w/"sweet" video images to match: bull fighting, rape, masturbation, ya' know, the usual. 

3. OPEN YOUR HEART 
her taking off that black wig to expose her blond ambition in that opening sequence is pretty epic BUT not compared to all that is "strike a pose". #switch 

2. RAY OF LIGHT 
it won all sorts of shit & gives us an amped up material world & Maddy. 

1. EXPRESS YOURSELF 
i'm pretty sure that as these types of lists go on for years to come, because they will...because she's an icon, the interchangeable videos vying for the #1 spot will be: "vogue/like a prayer" & this one. there's no denying it's greatness. inspired by my favorite movie (due to this video) Fritz Lang's 1927 silent movie masterpiece "Metropolis" it is visually astounding & captivating. a true classic being honored by a modern classic which has now become a classic itself. 

p.s.
I would have added GIRL GONE WILD for it's gorgeousness alone. but that's just me.
