Album title: Something to Remember
Singers: Madonna
Release year: 1995
Something to Remember is a compilation album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on November 7, 1995 by Maverick Records. It came after a controversial period of Madonna in the 1990s and at this time critics had deemed her career over. In response to this Madonna announced this compilation album, which was composed mostly of ballads spanning Madonna's career with a revised version of "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" and three new songs: "You'll See", "One More Chance" and a cover of Marvin Gaye's "I Want You". The record also featured previously released Madonna singles that had never been featured on her own album including; "I'll Remember" and "This Used to Be My Playground" and altogether provided a softer image for Madonna at a critical period in her career.

In producing the new songs for the album, Madonna worked with Massive Attack, Richard Page, and David Foster, the latter known for his work with such artists as Barbra Streisand. Madonna stated the concept for the album was to make fans and critics alike remember her for her music rather than for her controversial lifestyle. The album was generally well received by critics many of whom noted Madonna's purposefully softer image and music. Commercially the album performed well also, topping charts in Australia, Austria, Finland, and Italy, and peaking within top ten elsewhere. In the United States, it reached number six on the Billboard 200 and was certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of three million units. Worldwide, Something to Remember has sold over nine million copies.

"You'll See" was released as the album's first single on October 23, 1995, accompanied by a Spanish version named "Veras" and a Michael Haussman music video, the song peaked at number six in the United States. "One More Chance" and "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" were released as singles gaining little commercial response; the latter received a Jean-Baptiste Mondino directed music video at a time when Madonna was pregnant with daughter Lourdes. Other singles included previously released "Oh Father" taken from Madonna's 1989 album Like a Prayer which was released exclusively in Europe whilst the track "I Want You" was released as a promotional single alongside a video directed by Earle Sebastian.
