I chose this clip for many reasons.  First, this really is my favorite Madonna song ever, for a variety of reasons.  I always loved the groove; with the syncopated snare drum, as well as the cool piano chords.  In addition, I liked this way the band did this segue out of the DJ track.  I think it sounds real authentic and accurate; and we kept the tempo.  And finally, the vocal from Cara Noel Antosca is spot on and lovely. 

It may be difficult to hear, but there are triggers on the snare and kick drums to attempt to get that electric drum/dance groove effect, as well as some other Vogue percussion sounds I am playing on the Syndrum pads over my high hat. 

Recorded live at the World Cafe Live, Philadelphia, PA
