    The Power Of Good-Bye is a song by Madonna, included in her Ray Of Light album and released a single in 1998.

    This stunning song was written by Madonna and Rick Nowels and produced by Madonna, William Orbit and Patrick Leaonard.

    The music video was directed by Matthew Rolson and it suits the song's atmosphere very well, in the intriguing video Madonna shows one of her better looks.

    The Power Of Good-Bye was released as the fourth single from the album outside the United States, while in the U.S.A. it was the third (Drowned World/ Substitute For Love wasn't released there); in the U.K. it was released as a double A-side single with the song Little Star.

    This song was a decent hit, achieving numerous top 10 peaks around the world and peaking just outside the top 10 (at number 11) in the United States.

    The Power Of Good-Bye was also included in the 2001 compilation GHV2.

    This song was my favourite single off ROL at the time of release.

    It's still one of my favourite Madonna songs.

    Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.

    Say no to streaming!

    My favorite lyrics are:

    You were my lesson
    I had to learn
    I was your fortress
    You had to burn

    Mine follow yours :

    Pain is a warning that something is wrong
    I pray to God that it wont be long
    Do you wanna go higher?

    and, of course , the Chorus (simple but meaningful):

    There's nothing left to lose
    There's no more heart to bruise
    There's no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye
    Denise , we ( Madonna Fans ) will miss you A LOT !

    So many memories...

    It's a good song but I think the others from Ray Of Light overshadowed it somewhat.

    The other day I've heard this song on the radio... such an amazing feeling, I want Madonna to release other singles like this one!

    I think Madonna shows one of her best looks in this video, she looks absolutely stunning!

    Yeah! But the song is such a borefest and the video makes no sense at all. It's also one of her worst singles covers, bar Rain. She looks like some siamese twin tantra mum.
