Composition[edit]

According to MTV News, "Don't Say Goodbye" blends buoyant techno beats, sweeping keyboards, jangly guitars and stratospheric vocals. The track is about a former boyfriend of Rubio's who "got goin' just when the goin' was gettin' good".[1] The song also appeared in the 2002 movie The Guru in the film's end credits.

Music video[edit]

A sample clip of "Don't Say Goodbye".

The music video for "Don't Say Goodbye" is influenced by the Japanese film Akira and was directed by American duo The Brothers Strause and filmed in Universal City, California on April 1, 2002.[2] Rubio said about the video that "We did part of it like a Japanese cartoon, and for the dancing, we feel the rhythm of the song because the beat is almost like a heartbeat. The story is about this love that you feel with someone and he just takes one step back. I was riding the motorcycle with him, and at the end, well, he makes his choice. I was riding the bike 'til the end of love. And I was driving, of course. I was in charge".[1] The music video for "Don't Say Goodbye" is one of the most expensive music videos by Paulina Rubio and as quoted "She has one of the most expensive music videos in history than any other Mexican singer."[3]

The clip, features a combination of animation, live action and dancing shots that loosely convey the narrative of the song. It had nominations in Los Premios MTV Latino America 2002 including the nomination for "Video of the year".
