from BEAUTIFUL FEELING

written by David Foster & Madonna

Angelica Di Castro is a talented Italian/Canadian singer who sings fluently in both Italian and English. Her first album, “Bittersweet,” was released in 2006 and was followed in 2008 with “Beautiful Feeling” that included the songs of “Bittersweet” plus some new material.

Stylistically the songs are in the Adult Contemporary vein with some Latin and light rock moments. They were both good vehicles to present audiences Di Castro’s utterly pleasant voice. The singer obviously follows the footsteps of other Canadian icons like Lara Fabian and Céline Dion. A point of contact with those superstars comes from her interpretation of a David Foster original entitled “I Can’t Forget.” This unreleased song, co-written by the Canadian super-producer with Madonna, comes from the 1994 “Something To Remember” sessions that gave birth to Madonna’s hit single “You’ll See.” Floating around the net is the original demo by Madonna that’s a tad slower compared to Di Castro’s Latin tinged, upbeat version. Although “I Can’t Forget” is a nice pop song for Di Castro, we are left wondering how it would have sounded sung by Madonna after the full Foster production treatment.

Lyrics

Don’t run away, come closer
I’ll take you away from sadness
Let me lift you out of the darkness
Let me sooth your soul

The shadow of your smile stays on my mind
And every song I hear reminds me of you

Every breath, every step, I’m closer to you
Every day (every day), everything (everything) reminds me of you
I can’t forget you at all

Don’t be afraid, come to me
I know that you’ve been hurt and you’re scared
Let me fill your heart up with gladness
Let me take you there

Everything you say stays in my heart
Everything I do, I’m thinking of you

Every breath, every step, I’m closer to you
Every day (every day), everything (everything) reminds me of you
I can’t forget you at all

Love means letting go of fear
And I have nothing but love for you, my dear

I can’t forget

Every breath (every breath), every step (every step), I’m closer to you
Every day (every day), everything (everything) reminds me of you
Every breath (every breath), every step (every step), I’m closer to you
Every day (every day), everything (everything) reminds me of, of you
I can’t forget you at all
I won’t forget you at all
