HUMPDAY SEXY SONG: I WANT YOU - MADONNA (FT. MASSIVE ATTACK)
Madonna was approached by Massive Attack to record a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic I Want You for the Gaye tribute album Inner City Blues at the suggestion of producer Nellee Hooper who had just worked with Madonna on her Bedtime Stories album. Madonna recorded her vocals in New York and Massive Attack produced the song. Originally intended to be released as a single, Motown, Gaye's label, and Madonna's record label could not come to an agreement, so I Want You was never officially released as a single. It did, however, appear on Madonna's compilation album Something To Remember and the video she made for it, inspired by the Dorothy Parker story A Telephone Call, was played heavily on VH1 and MTV. A lush, orchestrated version appears on Something To Remember as well as this absolutely gorgeous, trip-hop version. This is truly one of Madonna's sexiest, best vocal performances IMO. Here is I Want You. Hump a Gaye.
