I Can't Forget (STR-Era Demo) Has LEAKED

Recommended Posts

Guest ursaminorjim

:hurt: BLASPHEMY!!!

I can see if some think it's preferable to "One More Chance" maybe, but "You'll See"? OUCH.

Sorry. "You'll see" has always struck me as "Live to tell"-for-the-Celine-Dion-age. It's too slick.

It's only the best thing David Foster ever produced. It's got theatrics, an urgency in the delivery, and a solid conviction. And it's also Madonna's greatest moment when it comes to playing character in song; she genuinely seems to believe in the material.

I'd say it's very early-80s, myself. It's like if "Crazy for you" were "Rain." Or maybe vice-versa. Or maybe Spandau Ballet's "True" minus the hernia.

Either way, it's lovely. I could totally hear this in a montage scene from a romantic dramadey starring, like, Jill Clayburgh and Alan Alda.

Totally agreed! I was thinking 80's before I saw your post. I'd never have guessed this was crafted in the same sessions as You'll See and One More Chance. There are moments that remind me of Promise to Try, both musically and vocally.

The whimper at the end is hilarious.

Oh man, I guess I'm the only person that kind-of likes it. I think it could have had some potential being a really good song once fully realized, perfect for adult contemporary or a movie-theme...remember when she used to do good ballads..? Oh well, listening now yes it's corny sounding but again for the time back then it would have been pleasant enough.

Even for that album, this is very cheesy. Sounds like a Disney song in the verses. I don't mind the chorus's.

Her voice is beautiful though and it's a nice listen. This could have been a nice album closer instead of the 'I Want You' Remix. But it would have needed more work. I wonder would they have beefed it up like 'You'll See' or kept it soft and simple.

It sounds mid 80's to me, a bit cheesy but...

the chorus is... :lmao: there's no word to explain. Too bad because the verse is great.

Yeah, totally 80's. And not in a good way, at all. Complete and utter shit.

However, her 'vulnerable' sounding performance is quite nice. Look at us Madonna loons. Even with something as awful as this, we can find something redeeming about it.

I can forget about this song. A total messy shit.

oh no, i love it. her voice is superb here. probably at its most trained. certainly not one of my favorite leaks but a great vocal performance. xo

I love how people are desperate for leaks of REJECTED songs and then whinge that they aren't good. I think it's OK.

Funny, I never noticed any particular character in that song, only the "does it convince you that I can fucking sing 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina'?" feeling. :p

It has nice parts to it. The way she sings it reminds me of how she sounds on "Love Won't Wait"- i.e. when she sings the "I can't keep cryin' for you..." part. Anyone else hear that?

It's nice enough. A little limp but not a bad track.

Ok track but nothing special.

I'm glad it stayed unreleased.

thanks for the link

nice to hear 'out-takes'

David Foster era, a collaborative period to 'buy' back US radio??

from that same period - 'You'll See' a real gem

but 'One More Chance'? my least favourite M UK released single...ever, ever ever.... :wacko:

It's okay. A finished version would've been a better fit for STR than "One More Chance".
