I still remember this video being banned by MTV. It was a huge controversy back then. Great song.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

This is certainly one of the best Madonna songs ever. It still sounds so good after all these years. I heard this was written by Lenny Kravitz for Ingrid (Prince's friend) but Madge took it and made exactly the same copy as Ingrid's version. I'm glad M took this song. It's just so Madonna. This song was like a prelude to Erotica.

Something about this is perfect

While this is hardly a "song" since she was basically just talking :lol: , this is def one of her iconic moments. This paved the way for SEX and Erotica, but none on Erotica can come close to JML's brilliance.

Its music video >>>>>>>>>>

Perfect song and video. Both Justify My Love and Erotica are brilliant, the former being sensual and inviting, whilst the latter is cold and remote in its nature.

I sometimes find this a bit boring, but it's one of the top 5 songs I want to see live - I find Madonna's live versions help re-invigorate a song and I'm desperate to see what she'd do with this nowadays.

28 years ago today:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justify_M ... usic_video

On December 3, 1990, ABC's Nightline played the video in its entirety, then interviewed Madonna live about the video's sexual content and censorship. When asked whether she stood to make more money selling the video than airing it on MTV, she appeared impatient and answered, "Yeah, so? Lucky me." She also expressed during the interview that she did not understand why MTV banned the video yet allowed videos that contained violence and degradation to women to continue receiving regular airplay.[27] The video was then released in VHS, and became a bestselling "video single".

That's how you make erotic tunes without sounding cheap.
