In the Summer of '99 came one of my favorite Madonna tracks - the song Beautiful Stranger. The song was featured in the Mike Myers film Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. The song was co-written by the uber talented William Orbit who worked on Madonna's Grammy award winning album, Ray of Light. The video was directed by Brett Ratner. Brett, who had directed long time Madonna rival Mariah Carey previously, would go on to direct for Sean Combs and Jessica Simpson in the near future. The video was a huge hit and still one of the most fun Madonna videos to date. The video features Mike Myers as Austin Powers who is sent to capture a "master in disguise" (Madonna). After arriving at the club where Madonna is performing Austin's dirty mind gets the better of him and he fantasizes about Madonna and him flirting, kissing, laughing - you get the idea. The video ends not with Austin catching the spy but instead falling in love. I guess Madonna just has the way with men. :-) The video is totally cute and totally fun. "Oh Behave!" Just what we all need to start off this busy week.
