Mattress posted a topic in General Madonna DiscussionOn October 20, 1992, Madonna released one of her finest albums and launched perhaps the most significant, polarizing era ever in pop culture history. She published some book, too. Ladies and gentlemen... we have (rather unbelievably) reached Erotica 25.
Mattress posted a topic in General Madonna DiscussionWe'd heard about the mega deal with Time Warner. We'd seen the grainy tabloid shots of Madonna in the raw on the beach. We had this golden moment: And these golden globes with tooth to match: But the party didn't officially kick off until September 9 during the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards when --somewhere between Carvey, Cobain and Fartman-- was an audio-only teaser commercial for new Fall music coming soon to MTV. We heard R.E.M.'s "Drive". We heard some schmalz by Bon Jovi. Then we heard it : "Erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body." 5 seconds of video that sailed across the tape heads of my VCR more times than I can count. That this clip was actually from the Sex version called "Erotic" mattered not. We all ran around singing this one little line for the better part of a month desperate to hear the full track when, finally, on the night of Friday, October 2, 1992 at midnight MTV premiered the "Erotica" music video. Preceded by a mini-marathon of Madonna videos and a lengthy warning from Kurt Loder that included our first glimpse at the single cover: Dita Parlo had officially arrived.
