    We hate to bum you guys out more, especially considering this week has already been tragic enough for everyone, but there is something about one of Madonna's most famous songs that you need to know about.

    After the passing of Hollywood legend Lauren Bacall on Tuesday, every single one of the infamous celebs name-dropped in the song "Vogue" are no longer with us.

    Madonna pays tribute to all the faces from Hollywood's Golden Age, from Greta Garbo to Bette Davis in the dance floor tune, and now, 24 years after the song was originally released, we have said goodbye to every last one of them.

    Of course, many of them had already passed by the time the song came out, but more than half of them were still alive when the Material Girl sang about their "style," "grace" and "good face." The single hit the airwaves in March of 1990, and just one month later, Greta Garbo passed away.

    As first noticed by Marci Robin on Twitter, the great Lauren Bacall was the last one from the song we lost. So if "Vogue" is the anthem for the lost glamour of Old Hollywood, it officially has a whole new meaning.

    Here are all the stars that get a nod in "Vogue," along with their date of death, in order of their appearance in the song:

    Greta Garbo: April 15, 1990
    Marilyn Monroe: August 5 1962
    Marlene Dietrich: May 6, 1992
    Joe DiMaggio: March 8, 1999
    Marlon Brando: July 1, 2004
    James Dean: September 30, 1955
    Grace Kelly: September 14, 1982
    Jean Harlow, June 7, 1937
    Gene Kelly: February 2, 1996
    Fred Astaire: June 2, 1987
    Ginger Rogers: April 25, 1995
    Rita Hayworth: May 14, 1987
    Lauren Bacall: August 12, 2014
    Katharine Hepburn: June 29, 2003
    Lana Turner: June 29, 1995
    Bette Davis: October 6, 1989

    Farewell, ladies with an attitude and fellows that were in the mood.
