Ray of Light chega aos 20 anos e mais um site se atenta para isso e relembra como foi importante sua chegada para o mundo da música pop.
"HOW MADONNA'S 'RAY OF LIGHT' REIGNITED A POP ICON'S CAREER AND BROUGHT A GENERATION OF GAY MEN TOGETHER"
...Those of us who were old enough to have gone to the Girlie Show had a tough few years after that - Erotica had put Madonna out of favour with the public, her music wasn’t cool enough for school - although Evita and ballads album Something To Rememberhad reset her credibility with the mums - and it was with a degree of trepidation and hope that we welcomed the news of a new Madonna album, Ray Of Light.
After a long day of standing in the cold, a handful of us were led into the TV studio to watch Madonna perform 'Frozen' on the National Lottery show. At the time it was the most watched programme on TV. For many of us, this was the closest we’d seen Madonna whilst she was performing.
The reaction was fantastic from all quarters - the critical acclaim that she’d never tasted before was everywhere, from NME to Smash Hits, from BBC to Billboard, but more importantly, from people our own age.
...Since then, Madonna has elevated the track to signature song status alongside 'Like A Prayer', and it’s always the song that gets the biggest reaction at not only her concerts but also the Madonna Fan Party events. The video to the track was released as a single in its own right, her first video single since 'Justify My Love' - and is still critically regarded as her greatest pop video, winning over 50 ‘Best Video’ awards around the globe.
