    Rescue Me is a song by Madonna included in The Immaculate Collection and released as a single in 1991.

    Rescue Me is a very powerful song, it was written and produced by Madonna and Shep Pettibone.

    Unfortunately this awesome track is often overlooked… probably because it never got a proper music video.

    Despite being released without a music video and not being promoted at all Rescue Me was able to reach number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 in the UK.

    This song was never performed live by Madonna.

    Both the single covers are amazing.

    Love the song.

    Have to disagree about the covers: I finded so cheap at the time they just took a shot for JML video and a pic from a shoot magazine: I so wanted a proper cover and video
    There's only one Queen
    and that's MADONNA.

    In the pic from the Justify My Love video she looks like she need to be rescued... it's so appropriate!

    Another lost chance for Madonna. This could have been a great hit. It was actually quite a sizeable hit anyway even without a video!

    This should've been replaced with "Dress You Up" on The Immaculate Collection.

    Agree ! I can only imagine how great a video could´ve been. IMO "Rescue Me" is a very empowering song and, unfortunately, very under-rated!
    Definitely,one of my faves !
    Denise , we ( Madonna Fans ) will miss you A LOT !

    We're polar opposite. I really don't like her voice in this song, particularly at the end. The song, on the other hand, is quite nice.

    Her voice is impressive...especially at the end!

    So powerful...i never thought she could sing like that!
    It's great!

    For me, it's always been a filler track. I barely remember it.

    Her vocals >>>>>>>

    That raspy, husky deep voice that she uses on this track is fantastic. She would've performed it with a lot of passion and soul had it been included on the setlist for The Girlie Show. Her voice was very soulful throughout that show.

    Another lost opportunity of having a #1 because WB held the physical release. It peaked on #9 only with airplay, if they had released the single it most certainly would've shot to #1

    They wanted the album to sell I suppose.
