Iím Breathless Soundtrack
ďA collection of songs featured or inspired by the comic-book-turned-movie Dick Tracy, Iím Breathless is essentially Madonnaís take on popular music from the Ď40s, particularly big-band pop. Although her singing shows a surprising amount of range, the material tends to be nothing more than cutesy novelty numbers, like the double entendre-laden hit Hanky PankyĒ (Erlewine).

Iím Breathless approaches greatness only on Vogue, a hit single tacked on to the end of the record. Featuring an endlessly deep house groove and an instantly memorable melody, ĎVogueí is a detatched, affectionate celebration of transcendent pop and gay culture and stands as Madonnaís finest single momentĒ (Erlewine).
