Her Madgesty is celebrating her 60th birthday this month so we’re dedicating August to the Queen of Pop. We will be picking our A to Z of Madonna singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Madonna album.
Today is brought to you by the letter X…sort of.
X is for X rated and that’s Erotica! My name is Dita, I’ll be your mistress tonight, sings Madonna as she reveals her domantrix alter ego in the lead single and title track from 1992’s Erotica album.
- The video features behind-the-scenes footage from the making of her controversial SEX book which was released at the same time
- Look out for cameos from Naomi Campbell and Isabella Rossellini in the video
- MTV played the song only a handful of times before banning it – the second Madonna video they’d banned following Justify My Love
- The song peaked at no.3 on both the UK and USA singles charts
There aren’t any Madonna singles being with X although she does have an album track on American Life called X-Static Process that we toyed with using but not being a single ruled it out.
