Favourite Madonna Video - which one is yours

Mine is bad girl though she was at her most fabulous in Hung Up. Pity her growing nicely old didn’t take. Let’s celebrate her at her best.

I love how cinematic and big she was trying to go with Like a Prayer. It's fairly ridiculous but lots of videos I love are. When she's getting the spirit in front of the black choir - okay Madonna. Lol. Plus Leon!

Borderline - it's still early "innocent" bare bones Madonna, but it has better artistic merits than Holiday and it incorporates more than just Madonna dancing as in Lucky Star from the same era. She looks "real", and the alternating black and white and color. Nothing groundbreaking for early MTV, but that's why I like it. It's so of the era.

And I'll always love Vogue as unoriginal as that answer be. The black and white, the glamour, the hot men, the dance sequences. Similarly, Secret has really nice black and white cinematography and the images are gorgeous.

Finally, I like the simplicity and the hot cowboys in Don't Tell Me, but overall the video really at the top of my list.

Although the song "You'll See" is a bit of a bore, the music video is cinematic and beautiful.

"Express Yourself"

Oh, you mean the MUSIC videos, not the recent weird, cringey shit in which she looks like a drugged-up alien trying to figure out how to "human."

by Anonymousreply 20January 28, 2023 4:35 AM

All those 90s videos just scream 'humourless'. Trying so hard on the 'artiste' front. When you watch interviews from that period you see how cold, demanding and entitled she is.

The bitch forgets she's a pop singer who got famous selling sex. The only difference between her and a window whore in Amsterdam is that Madonna doesn't know when to quit.

I've been watching this a lot lately. To me, this is her at the height of her powers. Amazing showmanship, fashions, dancers, the amazing background video, and she looks great. I look at this and feel like she could do anything.

She and David Fincher were a match made in heaven. I can't possibly choose between their two greatest collaborations. Two-way tie between Express Yourself and Vogue.

They've both aged incredibly well. Yes, they're near perfect pop songs and Madge was at the height of her powers and fame. But, that's also down to Fincher's craft. Just expertly filmed and edited videos. Editing especially gets overlooked when it comes to the power of great music videos. It's the "rhythm section" of music video creative.

I often wonder if Madonna and Fincher are still friends. You rarely hear the two mention each other these days in interviews.

And if there's one director who should helm her biopic, it should be Fincher.

Fincher is the same as William Orbit. They served a purpose.

R24 is my Madonna twin. I love both of those videos. Deeper and Deeper is actually a work of art.

I miss the Madonna of the 90’s, when MTV would treat the premiere of one of her music videos like it was the Super Bowl or something. I remember a special event when Bedtime Stories premiered.

The Wayne’s World parody of “Justify My Love”. When she still had a sense of humor.

Post '80s, she became clinical and mechanical. There's no humanity there, just a cold glossy veneer with nothing beneath.

"Vogue" is the quintessential Madonna video. It's the one that turned her from international pop sensation to legendary icon.

by Anonymousreply 38January 28, 2023 11:49 AM

She asked Herb Ritts to direct the Cherish video.

Ritts reportedly tried to talk her out of it by saying, "But I'm a still photographer. I don't know anything about film." Undaunted, Madonna replied simply, "Well you have a few weeks to learn."

R43 That's not Sandra Bernhard. Madonna made this video after the two of them had their rift. This is a lookalike, and a clear "fuck you" from Madonna to Sandra.

R30, Madonna and David Fincher's professional relationship fell apart when they broke up romantically, ca 1989-90. He was to direct "Truth or Dare," but was quickly replaced when their relationship soured. They reunited professionally (and perhaps personally) in 1993 for "Bad Girl," prompting Fincher's then wife, Donya Fiorentino (sister of Linda), to blame Madonna for breaking up their marriage. Fincher and Fiorentino divorced in 1995, and Donya went on to marry Gary Oldman two year later.

I believe both Fincher and Madonna have been asked about each other by the press in later years and their responses have been short and complimentary.
