I`ll remember



 "I'll Remember" was released on March 8, 1994, as the soundtrack single of the 1994 film With Honors."I'll Remember" has characteristics of late Seventies styled songs. It utilizes a synthesized keyboard arrangement to bring about a continuously reverberating sound of heartbeat. Contemporary critics praised the song, hailing it as one of Madonna's best ill_remember_140x105.jpgworks.

After its release, the song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Madonna's fifth song to do so. It reached the top of the charts in Canada and Italy. In other nations it reached the top-ten.

Lyrically the song talks about Madonna looking back on a good love affair.

The music video was directed by Alek Keshishian who had previously directed the live performance versions of Like a virgin (1984) and Holiday (1983) from the Truth or dare documentary and also the music video of her single This used to be my playground (1992)

The video featured production credits by Diane Greenwalt, editing by Patrick Sheffield and photography by Stephen Ramsey.

The video was compared to the music video of Madonna's single Rain (1993)

The song was perfomed by: Madonna - writer and vocals, Patrick Leonard – co-writer, drums, keyboard, production, Richard Page - co-writer, Dean Parks - acoustic guitar, Suzie Katayama - cello.

Mmmm, mmmm
Say good-bye to not knowing when
The truth in my whole life began
Say good-bye to not knowing how to cry
You taught me that

Chorus (first time substitute "strength" for "love" and "saved" for "changed"):

And I'll remember the love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember the way that you changed me
I'll remember

Inside I was a child
That could not mend a broken wing 200px-Madonna_I'll_Remember_US_CD_SIngle.jpg
Outside I looked for a way
To teach my heart to sing


I learned to let go of the illusion that we can possess 
I learned to let go, I travel in stillness
And I'll remember happiness
I'll remember [i'll remember]
Mmmmm... [i'll remember]

[i'll remember]

No I've never been afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why
I'll remember [i'll remember]
(repeat 3 times, substituting "And" for "Now" the second and third times)
