Madonna Day 10

Happy Birthday, Queen of Pop! That's right, Madonna turns 52 today, which also means the end of my countdown of the ten best Madonna songs!

And number 1 is...

1. Ray of Light, Ray of Light

Yes, this is the song that beat Like a Prayer. Its charms are boundless. Every day in the shower I always sing Ray of Light at the top of my lungs. And then when I'm out of the shower, it continues. It starts out so calmly, "Zephyr in the sky at night, I wonder, do my tears of mourning, sink beneath the sun?" And then it's off! Who doesn't have the urge to sing along with Madonna at the top of their lungs when she's singing "And I feel! Like I just got home!" "Quicker than a ray of light!"

And the music video is perfect for this song. Zero controversy (sorry, Like a Prayer), and eye-catching.

It's my favorite Madonna song. Hell, it's my favorite song by anyone.

What are your thoughts on Ray of Light? The countdown? What are your favorite Madonna songs? Agree/disagree with me? Please, stop thinking it and write it down in the comments!


  1. I'm not too familiar with her, but I love "Like a Virgin"!

  2. Become familiar, it's worth it, especially if you love "Like a Virgin"!

  3. while it's a good choice, i still have to go with LIKE A PRAYER. sometimes consensus is correct. ;)

  4. It's a choice that indeed haunted me, knowing the intense love for Like A Prayer that many (including myself) have. But there's something so addicting about Ray of Light. Maybe it's that echo? "Threatens every o o o o o o o o one," or "Through the endless yea-yea-yea-yea-years." That's probably it.
