Statements about things in this thread:
Why does funky keep wading into threads making statements when he hasn’t read the earlier posts? His age I guess.
I’ve been doing this a lot lately need to stop skim reading. Also you’re a month older love, never forget that.
I didn’t realise that IWY got heavy rotation as a video; I wonder if it really was the planned single and then the label got scared and went with the more poppy You’ll See. I actually don’t even remember the IWY video at the time, although looking back I do remember only really becoming a music geek in 1996, about the time I started working in Woolies. I had stopped following Madonna after TIC, like a true fair weather. STR was bunged into a 2 for 10 promo or some such at work and I bought it, and I was shocked by how much good music I was aware of but hadn’t paid much attention to between 89 and 95. Particularly TAB, Playground, I’ll Remember... I remember You’ll See doing well but the album brought it home to me. I was obsessed with the album and became obsessed with her at a time when the public were still unsure, despite the Evita promo.
I went back and picked up Erotica and Bedtime Stories and rinsed those too. Then ROL came along. So my journey with Madonna was topsy turvy, but in the mid and late 90s nobody came close.
