Rescue Me is the second brand new track recorded for The Immaculate Collection in 1990. It was not planned as a single off this album in the beginning, but since it got a solid airplay in the U.S., Sire Record changed their mind after all. It's Madonna's second song co-written and co-produced with Shep Pettibone, the American DJ, who had been remixing Madonna's singles since 1986. His production repertory includes such hit singles as Vogue, This Used To Be My Playground or Erotica.
Rescue Me is a classic up-tempo house-pop song typical for self-confident Madonna at the top of her career, who is, ironically, asking her boyfriend for help and stoping her from drowning. Various Pettibone's remixes including the rare Alternate Single Mix are being released digitally tomorrow, Friday, December 11th.
Madonna has just published photos from the third "pink" photosession by Ricardo Gomes: "Get dressed up. Pretend to have a party. Promise yourself you won't go insane being in lockdown for the 3rd time." And as usually, the pictures have also been added to the Gallery section.
Wanting. Needing. Waiting. Justify My Love is a highly hot and erotic trip-hop song released in November 1990 as the lead single to Madonna's first-ever greatest hits compilation called innocently The Immaculate Collection. It was written by Lenny Kravitz and his then-lover Ingrid Chavez. More precisely, it was composed of her love letters for Lenny. The music was produced by Kravitz and André Betts. However, Ingrid, the American singer and actress, wasn't mentioned in the single nor album credits at first, which led to legal action against Kravitz in 1992. Ingrid received an out-of-court settlement and gained her deserved co-writing credits. And just by the way, Madonna is said to change only one line in the whole lyrics.
However, the single became a smash hit, especially among the young generation, becoming Madonna's ninth #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 in the U.K. Despite its romantic and erotic content, the song represented one of Madonna's biggest style changes in her career. The song's vocals are mainly spoken or recited rather than sung. Madonna elaborated this idea and style even more in her forthcoming Erotica album in 1992. A remixed version called The Beast Witnin was produced by Kravitz and Madonna with verses being replaced by passages from the Book of Revelation. Besides that, André Betts and William Orbit, who both of them became Madonna's collaborators later in her career, prepared traditional remixes for various maxi-singles released all over the world. Betts co-produced Waiting, Where Life Begins and Secret Garden on Erotica, while Orbit collaborated on many masterpieces on Ray Of Light, Music and MDNA released in 1998, 2000, and 2012.
Madonna performed the single during her Girlie Show Tour and used it as a video interlude during the MDNA Tour. The 1993 live performance is very popular among fans for its highly amazing uptempo outro representing perfectly Madonna's ability to shock by not being shocking. However, the music video filmed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino was too sexy in comparison to the then standards. It was banned on MTV and other channels for its openly sexual content including imagery of sadomasochism, voyeurism, and bisexuality.
The digital maxi-single is being released tomorrow, on Friday, December 4th. Besides the previously available remixes, it contains the promo-only Orbit Edit.
Madonna published some more photos of another yet-unknown photosession with her new pink image. You can find them in the Gallery section. According to the Instagram account of Steven Klein, the photographer was with the queen of pop 3 days ago: "Present for a masterpiece!"
