"Something to Remember" is a song from Madonna's second sound track album I'm Breathless for the movie Dick Tracy. It was also released on Madonna's second greatest hits album Something to Remember as the title track.

Background

Madonna explained that the songs deals with her failed marriage to Penn and was the source of inspiration for naming her 1995 compilation album.

Composition

Musically, it has melancholy chords and rambling melody, which according to Taraborrelli made it the most compelling song by Madonna. Instrumentation featured in the track include restrained sounds of piano, strings and percussion. The chord progression has "unexpected" changes but still sounds like a sentimental tune.

Lyrics

Seems I've played the game for much too long
I let people buy my love and I
Never got to sing my songs for you

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love you pay your dues

Say that happiness cannot be measured
And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures
What a joke

I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love I've paid my dues

Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun
Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather
What a shame, who's to blame

I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"
