I WILL REMEMBER YOU




"I Will Remember You" is a song written by Sarah McLachlan, Seamus Egan and Dave Merenda. The song first appeared on the soundtrack to the movie The Brothers McMullen in 1995, and was featured on her remix album Rarities, B-Sides and Other Stuff. It became a hit when McLachlan released a live version of the song from her 1999 album Mirrorball placing at #14 in the US on July 20, 1999, after reaching the Top 40 on June 8. The song also earned McLachlan a Grammy Award in 1999.

The Rarities version of the song has three verses, the first of which is omitted during live performances (as heard on Mirrorball). This song was covered by Kenny Rogers on his 1999 album, "She Rides Wild Horses", and by Lil' Crazed for his song "I Will Remember You (Graduation Song)". Sarah McLachlan performed this song during an "in memoriam" slide show at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards, held on September 20, 2009.

This song brings such comfort to the soul and it provides those listening to it with the LOVE  and COMFORT they would need to carry themselves from day to day. When I hear this song, I often think of lost and pain, but by the end of the song I find happiness and joy...So don't resist the need to bask in the warmth of the message of the song...
