     By the summer of 1995, many people were saying Madonna's career was in decline. Granted she had just scored a mammoth, #1-for-seven-astounding-weeks smash hit "Take A Bow", but her career was in the toilet nonetheless. Madonna had something to say about that. She released a greatest ballads compilation, titled SOMETHING TO REMEMBER, which represented a somewhat softer image for Madonna. Featuring such standouts as "Rain", "Live To Tell", and "This Used To Be My Playground", the album also featured three newly recorded tracks- and along with her previous studio album BEDTIME STORIES, managed to successfully tone down her image and remind people what got her famous in the first place. Her music.

     "You'll See" was the first of the newly recorded tracks to be released. The song was a worldwide hit, peaking at #6 on the US Billboard charts. Madonna filmed the music video as a direct sequel to her previous ballad, "Take A Bow". "One More Chance" is an extremely underrated but beautiful ballad that deserves more attention!


     Madonna filmed two more videos for the album, a new cover of her own previous recording of "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" from her LIKE A VIRGIN album and a delicious version of the Marvin Gaye classic "I Want You" with a little help from Massive Attack. The song is a fan favorite with a lush and haunting video. You cannot deny that Madonna's artistry in the 90's is untouchable, and these songs are a perfect example of that.
