If you are looking for the Madonna songs from the Dick Tracy movie, these are most of them.
I got it for my girlfriend who is very pleased with what is on the Cd.

Any pop album that includes music by the divine Sondheim deserves four stars just for the effort, even though it also includes such "songs" as Vogue...

I got this CD recently to complete my Madonna collection. I wasn't expecting a lot from it but I was pleasantly surprised to find this was amazingly good! It's different from her other albums. Madonna takes on a more 1930s/1940s sound that went with her character in the movie Dick Tracy. What I think is best about this album is that it showcases Madonna's range. She's able to take on an upbeat song like "Vogue" while playing a sultry temptress with "He's a Man." There really isn't a track I would feel like skipping but some of the highlights-
1- "He's a Man" The song starts off slowly and builds up as it goes on. Madonna pushes her vocal register, really digging for the low notes and making it all come off as sounding powerful and alluring. One of the best Madonna songs period.
2- "Now I'm Following You" Part I is a simple little song that has Madonna singing a duo with another male. It has a classic sound to it. Then Part II is the more upbeat version of it, sort of a remix shall we say. It has a funkier beat and sound clips mixed in from other songs and from her character's role in the movie. A nice song overall.
3- "Vogue" - It's her hit song, what else needs to be said?
4- "Something to Remember" A song that simply hinges on emotions. It has a piano background with a few other instruments now and then. Her voice is heavy and it's rather simplistic but that gives it it's strength. She sings a song of gratitude sort of to someone she once loved but lost for whatever reason. Madonna convinces you the listener that this is something that really could have happened.
5 - "Back in Business" Sounds rather big-band. This song's strength comes in its lyrics. Only the chorus part is loud and full of energy.

Format: Audio CD
For this album, Madonna goes back in time to a completely different musical age - the 1940's, when pop music was very different, although the 1940's style is obscured somewhat by a 1990's production style. This is a light-hearted album, more in keeping with (though very different from) the song-and-dance music that Betty Grable did than the pop music of Dinah Shore or Jo Stafford. Some songs are covers of songs from that period but most are original songs written in style of the time, even including some novelty songs that you either love or hate. Madonna's big hit of the time, Vogue, was added to the album to help sales but it doesn't really blend in.
Stephen Sondheim composed three of the songs, these being Sooner or later, More and What can you lose - a duet with Mandy Patinkin. Madonna's performances on these songs are impressive. Of Madonna's own songs, Hanky panky and Vogue were huge hits but the outstanding song is Something to remember, which later became the title track of a compilation of her ballads. He's a man and Back in business are also wonderful. I also enjoyed Cry baby but I can imagine that some people will not like this at all. Madonna did not write the two other original songs - I'm going bananas (a slightly sill but entertaining novelty song) and Now I'm following you parts 1 and 2 (a lot of fun but definitely not a novelty).
I had to play this album a few times before I really appreciated it, but I liked it more with each listen. Although this album is just for fun, Madonna's covers of the Sondheim songs suggest that she could record a serious jazz album if she ever wants to.
This is not like any of Madonna's other albums so some of her fans may not like it. At the same time, I'm not sure that it will win her any new fans. Nevertheless, this is a fascinating album that proves just how versatile Madonna really is.

Format: Audio CD
Madonna as torch singer: still seems a little implausible over 20 years later, but "I'm Breathless: Music From and Inspired by the Film 'Dick Tracy'" has actually aged pretty well--actually not at all considering the built-in retro factor it already had back in 1990. Ironically, "Vogue" sounds the most dated of everything here.

Granted, anyone who hates show tunes will likely despise this, as will those who refuse to accept Madonna as anything but Queen of the Dance Floor, but "I'm Breathless" is much better than I remember it. While the low points are an embarassingly silly Carmen Miranda take-off called "I'm Going Bananas" and dull duet with Mandy Patinkin "What Can You Lose", there are some excellent numbers in the steamy opener "He's a Man"; 1940's Broadway-styled "More"; the sophisticated "Back in Business" employs the same airy vocals and finger-snaps Madonna would put to good use on her upcoming cover of "Fever"; she takes us from swing to New-Jack Swing in "Now I'm Following You". The needlessly controversial ode to spanking "Hanky Panky" is harmless fun; and the role-call of silver-screen legends over the nimble house beats of "Vogue" remains to me the pinnacle of her illustrious career.

He's a Man 5/5
Sooner or Later 4/5
Hanky Panky 5/5
I'm Going Bananas 1/5
Cry Baby 4/5
Something to Remember 4/5
Back In Business 5/5
More 4/5
What Can You Lose 1/5
Now I'm Following You 4/5
Vogue 5/5

If you dismissed this album in the '90s, it's definitely worth revisiting through grown-up ears. FOUR STARS.
