Revisiting "Nothing Really Matters" by Madonna


Recommended Posts

One of Madonna’s most underrated singles “Nothing Really Matters” has been on my playlist for the last week or so and I’ve always been curious as to why it is seemingly swept under the rug of the rest of Madonna’s huge discography.

The song was released as the fifth single from the “Ray of Light” album in March 1999.  “Ray of Light” is well known and critically acclaimed to be one of Madonna’s best albums.  Sonically, “Nothing Really Matters” fits in with the rest of the album and showcases some of Madonna’s best vocals.

Madonna was inspired by “Memoirs of a Geisha” when she filmed the music video and wore a red kimono that has been noted as one of Madonna’s iconic looks during her career.

The single was performed at the 1999 Grammy Awards and was noted as one of the best performances of the night.

The single peaked at number 93 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

After the “Ray of Light” album era came to an end, Madonna has not performed the song since (that I am aware of).

Why do you think “Nothing Really Matters” has been nonexistent since?  What are your thoughts on the song?

It is one of her best tracks. A perfectly orchestrated and wonderful blend of pop and electronica into a pop masterpiece. The visuals of the video had even influenced the developer of Silent Hill. She truly was the Main Pop Lady of that time :mimiclap_mariah_clapping_applause_proud_yes_Yas:

Still remains the greatest pop album of all time :mimiclap_mariah_clapping_applause_proud_yes_Yas:

The spillage :mimiclap_mariah_clapping_applause_proud_yes_Yas: Madonna, particularly from 1995-2004, was a creative genius and an absolute mastermind. That entire era of music in general was was just brilliant.
