EDITORS’ NOTES

If The Immaculate Collection was a celebration of seven years of radio hits, GHV2 (released 11 years later in 2001) proved that Madonna hadn’t yet been relegated to famous-for-being-famous status. Over the ‘90s, she’d grown even more daring in her persona and her eclectic approach to music. She was capable of igniting the populace with a huge Streisand-style ballad (Babyface’s “Take a Bow”) or an inescapably catchy dance tune (“Ray of Light”). And don’t forget soundtrack contributions such as “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” (from Evita) and “Beautiful Stranger” (from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me). That the latter was one of her brighter, deeper singles ever was proof that as the ‘90s ended, she wasn’t slowing down at all.
