ONE OF HER BEST!

This is the Video for the Song that won her 7 MTV Video Music Awards and 4 Grammy's... It's a faily simple video with alot of Energy and Stunning Imagery... it started the whole "time laps" fad in music videos and videos that is still often used today. This is actually also one of my favorite songs by Madonna, and definately think it's worth the $2 for the download.

Good Job!

This is a good song!!! Good Job Madonna!!

Neat video, but Peter Gabriel was first

FindTheTime80's review mentioned something about this video starting the "time lapse fad" in music videos. But I believe Peter Gabriel actual pulled off the first really popular video (I can't recall the song title, sorry) about 10 years before Ray Of Light was made. The technique, called stop-motion animation, was actually pioneered many decades prior to the invention of MTV -- the old kid shows "Gumby & Pokey" and "Davy & Goliath," and of course SNL's "Mr. Bill," are examples of stop-motion animation -- and several artists experimented with it in videos even before Peter Gabriel. But I think it's fair to say his was the one that made the biggest mark, and inspired more artists to make use of the technique. In Ray of Light, it looks like a combo of stop-motion of Madonna in front of a green screen, with some other technique providing the occasional super-fast-motion background projected behind her. Anyway, just a little nerd-talk for y'all.

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she has manipulated the media and the public with...
