Top tens: This week in 1998
Two years after Madonna starred as Eva Peron in Evita, she was back with a new perspective and new, seventh studio album 'Ray Of Light'. 'Frozen', which has nothing to do with the smash-hit 2013 movie of the same name, was released as the lead single and quickly found favour with fans, and in the charts.
A No. 1 in the UK chart from 20 years ago above (and No. 4 in Ireland), it reached number 2 in the US, the sixth track by Madonna to peak at the number two position in the Billboard Hot 100, overtaking Elvis's record of most number-two hits.
In 2005 in Belgium 'Frozen' landed Madonna in hot water as a judge ruled the opening four-bar theme had been plagiarized from the song 'Ma Vie Fout le Camp' ('My Life's Getting Nowhere'), by Salvatore Acquaviva. As a result, the Madonna song was banned from a region where it had previously reached No. 3 in the charts. The ruling was overturned in 2014, lifting the Belgian ban.
