"Vogue" was released on March 27, 1990 as the lead single of the soundtrack album I'm Breathless (1990). Madonna was inspired by vogue dancers and choreographers Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza and Luis Xtravaganza from the Harlem House Ball community, the origin of the dance form, and they introduced Vogueing to her at the Sound Factory club in New York City. "Vogue" is an upbeat house song which set trends in dance music in the 1990s with strong influences of 1970s disco within its composition. It also contains a spoken section, in which Madonna name-checks various golden-era Hollywood celebrities. Lyrically, the song is about enjoying oneself on the dance floor no matter who one is, and it contains a theme of escapism. "Vogue" reached the no.1 spot in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, and New Zealand. At the end of the year 1990 the song landed at the runner-up slot of the Global Countdown Chart with a total of 8.575.000 points.
