After a brief hiatus, I’m back! (Who knew writing a music review every day was so time consuming?)
I’ve been in a Madonna mood lately and I’ve been listening to a fair few greatest hits compilations. Of all the Madonna singles I didn’t know before, this was the one that stood out. ‘Bedtime Story’ was written by Björk and it’s interesting to see her highly idiomatic songwriting filtered though a performer that prefers polish to rawness.
The beat feels very modern and pairs well with the lyrics to produce a journey into the subconscious.
Also, watch the video (the most expensive ever produced at the time).
Track: Bedtime Story
