Madonnathon Song of the Day - Frozen

On Tuesday, August 16th Madonna will be 53 years young, and since she's currently in the studio working on her long-awaited follow-up to "Hard Candy," I thought this would be a good time to celebrate with a Madonna Marathon, or a Madonnathon if you will. Yes, folks, for the remainder of the month of August, we will be featuring some of the many great songs from the talented superstar's catalog. So if you're a Madonna fan, stay tuned for some all time favorites, cool clips, and some gems from years past.

"Frozen" was the lead single off of Madonna's groundbreaking 1998 album "Ray of Light." For the album, Madonna worked with renowned deejay/producer William Orbit (with whom it is rumoured she is working with again) to create a whole new electronic/ambient sound, and this song is a perfect example of that sound. It's mystical and melancholy, beautiful and poignant all at the same time, and it's one of my favorite Madonna tunes of all time.

The video features wickedly cool special effects, with our star as a mystical, witch-like creature who morphs into several different shapes throughout the video, including cool replications of herself. The video was shot in monochrome blue in the Mojave Desert and won the VMA for "best special effects."

So sit back, relax, and enjoy "Frozen":
