17. "Rescue Me"
This should illustrate to you how hard it is to rank the tracks of Madonna's first greatest hits, because "Rescue Me" is fabulous. It features one of her most soulful vocals, some stirring spoken-word confessionals, and a driving climax. But "Rescue Me" is not an essential track from this era of Madonna; it serves more to introduce the cold candor of "Erotica" and the sultriness of "Bedtime Stories." The song, which set a Billboard record by debuting at #15 on the Hot 100, is most electrifying when Madonna croons, "I'm talking / I'm talking / I believe in the power of love."
