There's a raw element and simplicity that lends itself to a vulnerable vocal and lyric that she puts through.
You really hear the emotion in her voice. Pettibone: [I] never thought about [whether "Bad Girl" was autobiographical]. It was just a good song that I'm sure many people can relate to. Shimkin: "Bye Bye Baby" was committed to tape with the filtered vocal — it wasn't an afterthought, it was how she heard herself when doing the song.
We went to tape with that effect, there was no removing that. Sometimes you apply treatments like that in the mix, but that was committed to tape. There were no restrictions.

To be on a recording that will be around for as long as forever will be for us humans, I'm so proud. Niki and I were really taken care of, we were paid well and respected and had a great time with Tony and Shep, and I think that comes across on the records.
While Madonna's turn toward transgression wasn't apparent to everyone during the sessions, her collaborators eventually realized the through-line that connected Erotica , her Sex book and the erotic thriller Body of Evidence. At the very least, they were certainly aware of the controversy that engulfed the album upon its release. Wimbish: She knew how to deliver with shock and awe. The industry had a flow, she got it, and I'm not brownnosing her. Shimkin: I'm It wasn't as obvious to us before when we were doing songs like "Rain" and "Bye Bye Baby" and "Why's It So Hard," but as it slowly came together, it became more obvious as we saw things alongside it.
