I'm Breathless: Music from and Inspired by the Film Dick Tracy
By the close of the 1980s, Madonna had conquered the music world and had her eyes set on the movies, and among her most prominent big screen roles was that of Breathless Mahoney opposite Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy. One of three soundtrack releases accompanying the big screen blockbuster, Madonna's I'M BREATHLESS: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE FILM DICK TRACY features several songs penned by Stephen Sondheim (including Oscar winner “Sooner or Later”) and the entire collection tips its Fedora to Prohibition-era pop, jazz and swing. Among its many highlights are ballad “Something to Remember” and “Vogue”; name-checking such Hollywood icons as Garbo, Monroe and Dietrich, the latter song was #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 this week in 1990. The double-platinum I'M BREATHLESS further cemented Madonna's status as one of the world's greatest entertainers.
