Only discovered this song about a month ago, but I think it's brilliant! I love how it forshadowed the direction of Ray Of Light (my favourite album ever).

My favorite lyrics are:

Words are useless
Especially sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I feel

Bedtime Stories is my favorite Madonna album. Every song on it is falwless, including this one.

If this is where Secrets is from, then I like it :P
And I think Take A Bow as well :-?

This is the thread of the single "Bedtime Story" not the album "Bedtime Stories".

But yeah, all, this single ("Bedtime Story"), "Secret", "Take a bow" and "Human Nature" are on the same album.

TRIVIA: This was the first Madonna single after 33 consecutive singles spanning a period of 12 years which failed to crack the Billboard Top 40. Strangely, it was the follow-up to her biggest Billboard hit ever (Take A Bow). Even more weirdly, "Bedtime Story" was the highest peaking UK single from the "Bedtime Stories" album (#4 although it dropped like a rock), bringing her back in the Top 10 after "Take A Bow" stopped a series of 35 consecutive UK Top 10 hits spanning a period of 11 years :o
In the UK it was released the week she performed at the Brits, that's why it debut so high at #4.
The video wasn't even out yet, but her team did a good job releasing it the week she performed it.
Freddy DeMann knew how to do his job.

The video is perfect, pure art and one of her best. I also love the song, it's kinda special, she could do more like this
I did not know the song for so long cause I don't think I heard it here in my childhood in Germany in opposite to Secret, Take a bow and Human Nature

That's why it's at the MOMA in NYC; good eye!

I'm glad they didn't allow her to shoot the video in Turkey so that we have a masterpiece video in our hands. Brilliant song, brilliant video. She was miles ahead of her peers back in the day :(

I also bloody love the Bedtime Story video. What's this about it being filmed in Turkey?

Wish her VEVO had all her music videos in better quality. The Warner video account is poor in quality. :-? :-?

My favourite video of hers alongside Bad Girl. The song itself is one of my favourite Madonna singles. It doesn't have much radio or commercial appeal, but its quality warrants it to have been a much bigger hit than it unfortunately was.

One of her best videos ever.

Also one of her best songs ever.

Loved when it was released on single and you had to buy two cd-singles to make the book complete. Such a great idea. :D

Did the Björk version ever leak? I believe the original lyrics are “let’s get unconscious on E”.
