All Music Guide - Jose Promis
"Bedtime Story," the third single from Madonna's Bedtime Stories album, holds the distinction of being her first U.S. single since her debut, "Everybody," to fail to crack the U.S. Top 40 the song peaked at 42. It was the follow-up to her immensely popular hit "Take a Bow," and also one of her most adventurous and least-commercial singles. The song was co-written by alterna-goddess Bjork, and, with its electronica undertones, seemed to pre-date the material from her forthcoming Ray of Light album, as opposed to fitting in with the warm, adult-contemporary-laced urban feel of Bedtime Stories. The single comes with seven versions, the first being an edit of the album track. ...

All Music Guide - Jose Promis
"Bedtime Story," the third single from Madonna's Bedtime Stories album, holds the distinction of being her first U.S. single since her debut, "Everybody," to fail to crack the U.S. Top 40 the song peaked at 42. It was the follow-up to her immensely popular hit "Take a Bow," and also one of her most adventurous and least-commercial singles. The song was co-written by alterna-goddess Bjork, and, with its electronica undertones, seemed to pre-date the material from her forthcoming Ray of Light album, as opposed to fitting in with the warm, adult-contemporary-laced urban feel of Bedtime Stories. The single comes with seven versions, the first being an edit of the album track. The remixes, however, spin the song into a whole different direction. "Junior's Single Edit," remixed by Junior Vasquez, which is an edit of "Junior's Wet Dream Mix," sounds much more accessible and radio-friendly than the original. Had it been the official single version, it may have even cracked the Top 40. The "Orbital Mix" sounds even dreamier than the Junior Vasquez remixes, and "Junior's Sound Factory Mix" is much deeper, at times almost resembling a march. These remixes are pure dancefloor material, at times aggressive, at times ethereal, at times even trance-like. A great single, although not very commercial, but it stays true to its source, which is pure, unadulterated dance music. Also included is a B-side, the R&B album track "Sanctuary."

    This was a great song..I think if a remixed version had been released it would have been a hit.........I remember hearing it played in clubs and it's just really awesome.
