To round of the musical posts on Madonna, this one is focusing on her many music videos. Controversial, memorable and indelible are the words that spring to mind when I think of her multitudes of music videos. So do you like the controversial and much discussed videos such as the infamous Like a Prayer or the raunchy Justify my Love? Or do you prefer the more artistic and expressive ones in her repertoire like the surreal Bedtime Story and the atmospheric Frozen? Whatever your answer, please give it.
My personal favourites are:
Bad Girl, which features Christopher Walken as the Angel of Death watching over Madonna’s depressed businesswoman character and is directed by David Fincher.
Take a Bow, a period piece, in which Madonna plays the neglected lover of a matador.
Live to tell, in which she sings the song like a narrator accompanying images from then husband Sean Penn’s movie At Close Range.
And Frozen, in which she plays a melancholy being clad in black, in the desert that shapeshifts in to a flock of birds and a dog.
