1989: Dear Jessie By Madonna

Composed by Patrick Leonard and Madonna for her fourth studio album. The song was inspired by Patrick’s young daughter, Jessie, who Madonna met at the recording studio when working on the album Like a Prayer. The track is composed more like a children’s lullaby rather than a pop song. Lyrically, the song evokes a psychedelic fantasy landscape in which pink elephants roam with dancing moons and mermaids. The music video was produced by Animation City, an animation company in London in the UK. Madonna appears in the video as an animated Tinker Bell type of fairy. Genres: Baroque Pop, Psychedelic Pop.

As well as being a talented music artist, Madonna is also a philanthropist through her Ray of Light charity. Find out more here: http://www.rayoflight.org.
