Song of the Day - Vogue - Madonna

Several posts went around Facebook yesterday marking the 25th anniversary of the release of arguably Madonna's best song ever.  Yes, the year was 1990 and this song was the first single off of I'm Breathless, her soundtrack for the movie Dick Tracy.  It's inspiration came from the clubs of New York City, most notably Sound Factory, where the late night revelers were doing their vogueing thing on the dance floor.  

Everything about this song is perfect, from the lyrics and the beats, the masterfully choreographed black and white video, to this performance, from that year's Video Music Awards on MTV.  This visual incarnation of the song took on a whole new perspective from the original video, and the French Provincial costumes and accompanying dance moves made this one especially appealing and is probably one of the best performances ever, by any artist, at that particular awards show.  I especially love the fans.  So click play below and relive one memorable performance for a great, great song...
