Secretmusicvideo.jpg"Secret" is a song by Madonna, released as the first single from her 1994 album Bedtime stories. It was released in September 1994 and became a top ten hit around the world, including reaching number three in the US and five in the UK.

"Secret" was originally written and produced by Madonna with Shep Pettibone , who she had collaborated with on the 1992 album Erotica.

Unusual for the mid-90's, Madonna promoted this song on the Internet, with a 30-second sample of "Secret" and the cover image of the then-unreleased Bedtime Stories. She also left a message with the following words:

"Hello, all you Cyberheads! Welcome to the 90's version of intimacy. You can hear me... You can even see me... But you can't touch me... do you recognize my voice?... It's Madonna. Often imitated, but never duplicated. Or, should I say, often irritated?

If you feel like it, you can download the sound file of my new single "Secret", from my new album, "Bedtime Stories", which comes out next month. I just shot the video in New York, and will be premiering an exclusive sample of it online. So check back soon. In the meantime, why don't you post me a message and let me know what you think of my new song. And by the way, don't believe any of those online imposters pretending to be me... ain't nothing like the real thing.

Peace out."

 

 

The black and white music video was directed by photographer Melodie McDaniel and was filmed on September 9, 1994 at the Lenox Lounge in Harlem, New York.

SECRET

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life

You found a way to touch my soul
And I'm never ever ever gonna let it go
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reasons why
It took me by surprise that you understoodSecret01.jpg
You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody else
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me

Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret for me
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
