''I'm Breathless'' is a soundtrack album created for the 1990 film ''Film/DickTracy'' by Music/{{Madonna}}, featuring the hits "Vogue" and "Hanky Panky". Actually, only three of the songs from the album -- "Sooner Or Later", "More", and "What Can You Lose" -- were ever really used in the film, with "Now I'm Following You" re-recorded by a different artist. Also, "Vogue" was originally intended to be a B-side to Madonna's "Keep It Together" single from ''Music/LikeAPrayer'', but executives thought that it was too good a song to be wasted as a B-side and instead released it as a single prior to the album's release.
