(PCM) As you all probably know by now, iconic Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall sadly passed away on Tuesday at the age of 89. While Hollywood and the film world certainly mourns Bacall’s passing, her death actually has a bit of an odd impact in the music realm as well.
Bacall’s death is the last of the icons of classic Hollywood that are mentioned in Madonna’s hit song “Vogue”. We are sure many of you have been singing along with this track for many years and as you are most likely aware it features a spoken word verse near the end that acts as a shout-out to many classic Hollywood legends. Over the years all who were mentioned have passed away and now Bacall was the final one.
The verse is quoted below for reference:
“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.”
The hit song was released by Madonna back in 1990 and was certified double-platinum.
