Five-track maxi single - excellent - excerpt from cdnow reviewer M. Ciccone Lover (Blue Ridge, Ga): "....This import contains The Album Version and William Orbit Mix Of Justify my love and Shep's 'Spressin' Himself Remix.
1. Justify My Love (Q-Sound Mix): This version is the same one that appeared on the Immaculate Collection.
2. Justify My Love (Orbit 12"): An early collaboration with William Orbit. This version has an early techno sound to it. It is hot and sexy!
3. Hip Hop Mix: This version is the best one. The beats here are hip hop and hot!
4. Express Yourself (Sheps 'Spressin' Himself Mix): The best remix of Express yourself. I love it! You can never go wrong with Mr. Pettibone.
5. Justfiy My Love (The Beast Within Mix): This version could stand alone as song. It is completely different. The beat is incrediable. The lyrics are taken entireley from the Bible's book of Revelation. This song was also performed at the Girly Show and The Re-Invention Tour."

The Video That Started It All........

"In our life, we try to find ways to make our days easier. In Madonna's life, she tries to find ways to shock people so that her career is easier!!! In November 1990, MTV decided to take a pass on Madonna's latest video for "Justify My Love". This decision sparked a national uproar on what could be shown on television. The reason why MTV refused to air the clip was because it featured nudity, gays, lesbians, transexuals, bisexuals, S&M, and........... well..... straight people of course!!!
While MTV was rejected by Madonna for their offer to air the video as a part of a half-hour special devoted to the controversy, ABC's "Nightline" aired the video instead. Uncut, uninhibited, and completely naughty!!! This sparked an even bigger uproar, causing all major channels to give up on Madonna and the video.
She finally knew what she had to do, Madonna released the video herself on a VHS casstette. It sold over 400,000 copies, and will sell even more if you buy it now on Amazon.com!!! This is the completely uncut, uninhibited, and completely naughty version of the video that MTV refused to air. This is the video that set Madonna's career on fire. This is the video that started it all."
Kudos To Madonna

"Ok, in some ways I'm a conservative and have never really been accustomed to stuff like this, but "Justify My Love" was truly innovative. Madonna presented a sexual fantasy in the form of a music video and it is to this day, probably one of the most famous music videos in history. The video networks still refuse to play it uncut. The video itself plays around with sexual experimentation in an almost cheeky manner *my favorite scene is Madonna watching two men make out in front of her, a big huge grin on her face that she quickly covers up.* This video paved the way for Madonna's ultra-sexy "Erotica" period.Yes, it may seem vulgar and yes, it is definitely NOT for children and Madonna has said that repeatedly, but "Justify My Love" was very much an expression of artistry. The cool thing is that Madonna left that phase of her career in the early 90's and has not dwelled on her whole sexual beast persona which was the smart thing to do. Janet Britney and Christina....take note. ;)"
