I Will Remember You


by Sarah McLachlan


"I Will Remember You" is a song performed by Sarah McLachlan. The song first appeared on the soundtrack for the movie The Brothers McMullen in 1995 and 1996 where it peaked at #65 on the Billboard Hot 100. McLachlan’s original inspiration for the song came from Séamus Egan's instrumental song "Weep Not for the Memories", which appeared on his album A Week in January (1990). McLachlan added lyrics and modified the melody for her version. The song became a hit when McLachlan released a live version of the song on her 1999 album Mirrorball. The live version of "I Will Remember You" earned McLachlan her third straight Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance nomination in 2000 (after "Building a Mystery" in 1998 and "Adia" in 1999).

Angel
"Angel" is a song by Sarah McLachlan that originally appeared on her 1997 album Surfacing. As McLachlan explained on VH1 Storytellers, the song is about the destructive ways people choose to escape hardships in their lives. McLachlan said that writing it was easy and "a real joyous occasion." It was inspired by articles that she read in Rolling Stone about musicians turning to heroin to cope with the pressures of the music industry. She said that she identified with the feelings that might lead someone to use heroin: "I've been in that place where you've messed up and you're so lost that you don't know who you are anymore, and you're miserable—and here's this escape route. I've never done heroin, but I've done plenty of other things to escape." She said that the song is about "trying not to take responsibility for other people's problems and trying to love yourself at the same time". "Angel" was McLachlan's second consecutive top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, debuting at number twelve, and then jumping to the top ten the following week, before peaking at number four. It remained at the top ten for nineteen weeks, and for twenty-nine weeks in the top 100.
Make You Feel My Love
"Make You Feel My Love" is a love song written by Bob Dylan that appeared on his 1997 album Time Out of Mind. It was first recorded and released commercially by Billy Joel, under the title "To Make You Feel My Love", before Dylan's version appeared later that same year. It has since been covered by numerous performers and has proved to be a commercial success most recently for English singer-songwriter Adele. In 2008, Adele recorded "Make You Feel My Love" for her debut studio album 19 (2008).
Set Fire to the Rain
"Set Fire to the Rain" is a song by British singer-songwriter Adele from her second studio album 21. The song describes the contradictory elements of a relationship and the impossibility of letting go. The song is the third consecutive number-one single of the same album; the last female singer who achieved this was Katy Perry in 2010 when "Firework" hit number one. Adele is the first female British artist in history to have three consecutive US number ones. With "Rolling in the Deep", "Someone like You" and "Set Fire to the Rain", Adele logged a total of 14 weeks atop of the Billboard Hot 100. This is the most number of weeks at number one a British female artist has had from the same album.
Someone Like You
"Someone like You" is a song by English singer-songwriter Adele. It was written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21 (2011). The song was inspired by a broken relationship, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it. Accompanied only by a piano in the song (played by co-writer Wilson), Adele sings about the end of the relationship with her ex-boyfriend. The song received positive reviews from music critics who chose the song as a highlight of the album and praised the lyrics, its simple sound and Adele's vocal performance. Adele had said that she began writing it on her acoustic guitar in the wake of the break-up of her 18-month relationship with the 30-year-old man she thought she would marry. A few months after their split, he was engaged to someone else. "We were so intense I thought we would get married. But that was something he never wanted... So when I found out he does want that with someone else, it was just the horrible-est feeling ever. But after I wrote it, I felt more at peace. It set me free... I didn't think it would resonate with the world!"
This is Halloween
"This Is Halloween" is a song by composer Danny Elfman from the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas. In the film, the song is performed by the residents of the fictional "Halloween Town", which is the film's main setting, and introduces the town's Halloween-centered lifestyle.
My Heart Will Go On
"My Heart Will Go On", also called the "Love Theme from Titanic", is the main theme song to the 1997 blockbuster film Titanic. The song was recorded and released by Celine Dion. Originally released in 1997 on the Titanic soundtrack album and Dion's album Let's Talk About Love, the romantic love song went to number 1 all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom and Australia. The song became Dion's biggest hit, and one of the best-selling singles of all time, and was the world's best-selling single of 1998.
Hallelujah
Leonard Cohen, the Canadian singer-songwriter responsible for writing "Hallelujah", wrote around 80 draft verses for the song. At one writing session at the Royalton Hotel in New York, he was reduced to sitting on the floor and banging his head against the floor, struggling to get the lyrics just right. His original version contains several biblical references, most notably evoking the stories of Samson and traitorous Delilah from the Book of Judges ("she cut your hair") as well as the adulterous King David and Bathsheba ("you saw her bathing on the roof, her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you"). Jeff Buckley, the performer of the most enduringly popular and critically acclaimed cover of the song to date, recorded his version in 1994. Buckley's cover wasn't an instant hit and, unfortunately, he did not live to see the full critical acclaim of his performance due to his untimely death in 1997.
Creep
"Creep" is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. Radiohead released "Creep" as their debut single in 1992, and it later appeared on their first album, Pablo Honey (1993). During its initial release, "Creep" was not a chart success. However, upon re-release in 1993, it became a worldwide hit. Attendees of Radiohead's early gigs often exhibited little interest in the band's other songs, causing the band to react against "Creep" and play it less often during the mid-to-late 1990s. In 1998, halfway through their OK Computer tour, the band dropped the song from set lists altogether. "Creep" was not played live again until 2001, but it has since reappeared several times on the band's live sets.

The song garnered a mostly positive reception from critics. It was the recipient of several awards and accolades, including both the Golden Globe and Academy Awards for Best Original Song, and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. As a single, "Beauty and the Beast" performed well commercially, peaking at number nine on the United States' Billboard Hot 100.

The song was part of a stockpile of songs John and Taupin wrote while living together. John pinpoints his composition of the music to October 27th, 1969. It took him only ten minutes. Taupin had penned the lyrics earlier that day over breakfast. John cites the song as one of his favorites, and plays it at most of his concerts.

Say Something
Composed by Ian Axel, Chad Vaccarino, and Mike Campbell, "Say Something" is a down tempo indie pop piano ballad.

Quickly afterwards, Aguilera appeared on the re-recorded version of "Say Something", released on November 4, 2013. In the single version with Aguilera, she plays a ghost of the lover to whom the song is addressed as she traces the steps of the lead vocal. The song was critically praised for its powerful lyrics, the emotional composition and Aguilera's vocal delivery.

Although "I'll Be" has become a popular wedding song, McCain said "it's really more of a prayer" written in a moment of personal desperation after a break-up, the idea being that "maybe if I write my future, it'll come true."
