On November 7 1995, Madonna’s Something To Remember greatest ballad hits collection was released. The collection was released on different dates in different markets.
Described as a “love letter from Madonna to her fans and music lovers alike” in the album’s liner note, Madonna further explained:
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 I’ve made artistically, I’ve 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.
Something To Remember included the following songs:
I Want You
Take A Bow
Crazy for You
This Used to Be My Playground
Live to Tell
Love Don’t Live Here Anymore (Remix)
Something to Remember
One More Chance
I Want You (Orchestral)
The Japanese release included La Isla Bonita.
The Latin release included Verás the Spanish version of You’ll See.
That it is! Something to Remember is still Madonna’s Resurrection that revitalized her life and musical career-this time for good! Ballads, Sadness and Raw Emotion along with Art and Music were in while Controversy, Sex and Fame were out! Madonna Cried on Something to Remember because the ballads came from her heart and soul and presented Lady Madge as a giver and messenger of life, love and humanity. All of the ballads are brilliant reminders of how good she still is and can and will be and that is forever! Highlights include the #1 hit ballad classics Take a Bow, Crazy for You and Live to Tell along with I Want You, the title cut and Rain. Madonna went back on top to stay and I’m sure glad for that! Madonna Forever in her Pure Michigan Detroit Rock City Ballad Brilliance! Madonna-Detroit Made!
