This is the first Madonna album I ever heard ohmy.gif

I have specific memories of this one - my mum bought the CD in 1998, because she had rediscovered Rain which she loved, and additionally because I'd very recently shown interest in Madonna (Frozen was how I discovered Madonna) - so she thought I'd like it. Rain became such a long-lasting favourite for me, I'll always sing its praises. wub.gif

I remember really liking Crazy for You, and perhaps randomly, Forbidden Love! I still do. I don't think I was very into the album as a whole back then. Now, I consider it a very strong collection. heart.gif I bought the vinyl of it last year.

It's truly one fantastic album, which I truly love listen too. My Favourite song from the album would be Power of Good Bye.

Such a beautiful album! I really wish we could get a part 2 for everything since the release of the original ohmy.gif Maybe getting fans to make their dream tracklists is the first step to getting one...

This collection is perfect for this time of year! Madonna brings so much warmth and heart to her ballads which allows for that cozy, intimate feeling. I also think the context of the album allows you to appreciate the songs in a way you may not have previously; there's a few songs here I probably wouldn't individually seek out, yet I wouldn't skip anything.

I'll have a think about what I'd like as a Something to Remember 2.0 tracking list. Certainly plenty of great choices!

What's everyone's thoughts on the lead single, 'You'll See'?

Love this little statement from Madonna ahead of the compilation's release:

"So much controversy has swirled around my career this past decade that very little attention ever gets paid to my music. The songs are all but forgotten. While I have no regrets regarding the choices Iíve made artistically, Iíve learned to appreciate the idea of doing things in a simpler way. So without a lot of fanfare, without any distractions, I present to you this collection of ballads. Some are old, some are new. All of them are from my heart."

'You'll See' is never one that I go back to and I actually forget it exists most of the time. sad.gif Nice enough, but it's in my bottom few of this compilation.

She gives us something to remember - the music! wub.gif

I'm also going to try and get my tracklisting sorted, so many great ballads have come since the release of this!

It's a forgotten classic for me. Beautiful song which got left by the wayside for not being included on any compilation albums.

I've got to admit I do forget about it but I enjoy it when I hear it. You can tell Madonna's using what she learned in the vocal lessons for Evita and there is something quite performative about her delivery too. I like how it was presented as a follow-up to 'Take a Bow', another song with great storytelling.

In terms of sales, it was her biggest hit since 'Vogue' five years previously! ohmy.gif No doubt helped by her performance on Top of the Pops, then radio caught on.

Did not know it was such a sales smash! mellow.gif I can see why though given how radio-friendly/user-friendly it is. Definitely agree with the comment of it being a "forgotten classic"!
