O' Poem of Spite!

Speaking of Madonna (of which I will be wont to do), I recently heard a song by her I hadn't come across before. By 'song', I mean a poem that she reads by Pablo Neruda on the 'Il Postino' soundtrack, by the name of "If You Forget Me". [Side note: it's amazing how many lyric sites are infested with ads and popups...]

A nice wee poem about two people being in love, possibly fading over time, but if you keep it alive it will stay alive... but allow me to summarise it differently:

"If you don't obsessively compulsively think about me every moment of every day, then... well... screw you, buddy boy."

Not quite as poetic, but it gets to the heart I think...
