Listening to Bedtime Stories


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't have said Bedtime Stories is my favourite album, but it's my most listened to.

I listened to the whole album while on the train yesterday and I never get sick of it. And I really enjoyed Human Nature although I'm sick of it, but hearing it with headphones and that bass *boom*

It does have a mood and cohesion combined her soft lush vocals is delicious.

Love Tried To Welcome Me is most delicious and lush and whimsical. One of her best.

Love Tried to Welcome Me should have been a single.  Madonna always was outstanding with ballads. She seems to embrace them only sometimes and shuns them mostly altogether on tour.  I guess that it is hard to fly around and do cartwheels while singing ballads.  But Bedtime Stories seems to be a soup for the soul.  Midtempo Madonna is wonderful.

Listening to the entire Bedtime Stories album right now and I am falling in love all over again.  Honestly, it is my most overlooked Madonna album.  It's energy is completely different than the other 14 studio albums (I count Breathless) but the energy does not translate into weakness.  I used to think the album chronicled a broken heart but today it feels more like a falling in love vibe to me.    It is warm and sensual and flows well from beginning to end.  A full listen is like having the best romantic interlude ever.  So many gems in one treasure chest.  What a romantic genius Madonna is.  I miss 90's Madonna.  

Completely agree. And I also count I’m breathless.

It’s lovely. I’m just waiting for the snow to melt away and the weather to get warmer, then I can blare it and get the full Bedtime Experience!

Strange how different albums invoke different feelings with people-to me bedtime stories is all about the cold weather and getting warm and cosy! It’s my winter album.

I love listening to this album when I go to bed, in the bath and even making love! 

My favourite song is 'Inside Of Me', absolutely gorgeous, love her vocal on it, "I can't stop thinking of you" 💜

I never listened to it back in the day but it's my 2nd favourite Madonna album now as I'm older.

1. Madonna.

2. Bedtime Stories.

3. Confessions

This is a Madonna album that I needed to warm up to; after time, I realized "Hey! This is a great album!" I agree that Love Tried to Welcome Me should've been a single - it's definitely a highlight on the album. Personally, I think it's one of her albums with the best music videos as well. The last few songs on the album flowed so easily into her next studio album, ROL. :Madonna019:
