Ray Of Light

6 May, 1998

The artist releases her song, Ray Of Light, from her album with the same title. Co-writer, Muldoon is completely unaware that the song is recorded until a friend hears it on the radio.

I was a bit annoyed at first because Madonna wanted 30 percent just for changing a couple of lines, but then I realized that 15 percent of millions is a lot better than 100 percent of nothing. I did very well out of it. It’s been a life-changing experience. I’d say I’m financially secure for at least the next five to ten years as a result of 15 percent of one track by Madonna.
