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 Z…ish.
Z is for Zzzzzzzzzz or Bedtime Story. We know it’s tenuous but in the absence of a single beginning with Z, we are using creative license. Bedtime Story is the trippy, dance song that caused controversy with it’s lyric ‘Let’s get unconscious Honey’ sounding remarkably like she was saying ‘Let’s get unconscious on E’.
- The track was written by Björk, Nelle Hooper and Marius De Vrie
- It was the third release from the album Bedtime Stories and reached no.4 on the UK chart
- The video was directed by Mark Romanek (who also directed Rain) and was one of the most expensive pop videos of all time (Madonna has 3 of the top 5 – #2 Die Another Day, #3 Express Yourself and #4 Bedtime Story)
- Madonna performed the song at the 1995 BRIT Awards wearing a long blonde wig and a Versace silver dress accompanied by a pretty fierce wind machine
