"Vogue" as written by and Madonna L. Ciccone Timothy Clayton....
What are you looking at
Strike a pose
Strike a pose
Vogue, vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue, vogue

Don't just stand there
Don't, don't, don't just stand there
Don't just stand there
Don't, don't, don't just stand there
Ladies, ladies
Let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it

Look around everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go (look around)
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know
(Life that you know)

When all else fails and you long to be
Something better than you are today
I know a place where you can get away
It's called a dance floor, and here's what it's for, so

Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music
(Move to the music)
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow (go with the flow)
You know you can do it

All you need is your own imagination
So use it that's what it's for (that's what it's for)
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door (open up the door)

It makes no difference if you're black or white
If you're a boy or a girl
If the music's pumping it will give you new life
You're a superstar, yes, that's what you are
You know it

Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music
(Move to the music)
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow
You know you can do it

Greta Garbo, and Monroe
Dietrich and DiMaggio
Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean
On the cover of a magazine

Grace Kelly, Harlow, Jean
Picture of a beauty queen
Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rogers, dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katharine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it

Vogue, vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue, vogue
(Move to the music)
Vogue, vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue, vogue

Strike a pose, there's nothing to it

    General CommentHer Happiest Artwork! Vogue-a happy and friendly Madonna smile that flashed around the world. A highlight of the Blonde Ambition, Reinvention, Sticky and Sweet and MDNA performances, Madonna definite has her "Finest Inspiration" in her brilliant dances. In Vogue, Madonna has a lot to be happy about andd kisses her sadness and tears with a brilliant smile. Yes, Madonna's Intentions Are True and she's happy to shere them with her audience. To strike a pose is to be real with yourself-in that sense, Vogue is a beautiful Ciccone Dance of Art, Love and Music. By terming her audience Superstars, we are giving the love back to her. Madonna is a Superstar in Vogue. Maybe that's why it's her most beloved dance. From her Detroit birthplace to last night at the Olympia in Paris under French skies, Madonna has a fun life. That fun life is encapsulated in Vogue.

    My InterpretationVogue by the Queen of pop is simply magical. It is a very powerful piece of modern dance/pop music.

    When listening to Vogue i find more than 1 interpritation...

    The first and foremost is that dancing and letting go in a fantasy world is a free and easy way to enjoy oneself.

    I personally think the song is Madonna demonstrating her experienced understanding of music. She is singing lyrics which entriely reflect her performance. It also asks others to join in.

    When i listen to the lyrics i feel that they reflect the transition she was going through at that particular time in her career (intentional perhaps)

    "Your a superstar, yes that's what you are"

    I like many others think she has and still is in complete control.

    A iconic woman with the equally magical song Vogue.

    That's my opinion.

    General Commenti tihnk it's "here's where you find it" not BEAUTY's where you find it. i may be wrong, but i highly doubt that they are saying a two-syllable word in that time

    General Commentits not "here is where u find it" it is beauty cuz if u look at the next verse it goes together and makes more sense. plus it might sound like its not two syllable but some songs can turn out that way but people juss might not catch it quickly.
