Something to Remember is a compilation album by American recording artist Madonna, released by Maverick and Warner Bros. on November 3, 1995. The record was conceived after a controversial period in Madonna's career, when many critics had speculated that her career had declined. In response Madonna compiled the album, composed of ballads spanning over a decade of her career, including a reworked 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 features previously released singles that had never been included on a Madonna album, "I'll Remember" and "This Used to Be My Playground", and altogether provided a softer image for the singer during a critical period in her career.
For producing the new songs for the album, Madonna worked with David Foster and Nellee Hooper, the former known for his work with such artists as Barbra Streisand and Olivia Newton-John. Madonna stated that the concept for the album was to make fans and critics alike remember her music contributions rather than her media controversies. Something to Remember was well received by music critics who were impressed with Madonna's vocals and the album's cohesiveness. It was also a commercial success, 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 shipments of three million units. Worldwide, Something to Remember has sold over ten million copies.
Four singles and one promotional single were released to promote the album. Originally intended as the album's lead single, "I Want You" was released as the promotional single preceding the album, with a music video directed by Earle Sebastian. "You'll See" was released as the album's first single on October 23, 1995, accompanied by a Spanish version titled "Verás" and a music video directed by Michael Haussman. The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, while reaching the top five in Austria, Canada, Finland, Italy and the United Kingdom. "Oh Father", "One More Chance" and "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" were released as the follow up singles, but gained little commercial response; the latter received a music video directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
