About Forget Me Nots

"Forget Me Nots" is a song co-written and performed by American R&B musician Patrice Rushen. The song appears on Rushen's seventh album Straight from the Heart (1982). Making a radical shift in her music, Rushen would continue to harness the particular style of this record all through to her next album Now (1984). Originally deemed by record label executives as a "flop", the song became a Top 40 pop (#23), Top 5 R&B (#4), and Top 5 dance (#2) hit on the Billboard charts and is the hit for which she is best known. The single's success culminated in Rushen scoring her first nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 1983 Grammy Awards. Rushen had a number of songs on the R&B and Dance charts, but "Forget Me Nots" was her only US Top 40 pop hit and ranked #85 on VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980s in 2009. The bassline is particularly recognizable, and was performed on the record by session bass player Freddie Washington. The classic tenor saxophone solo was played by Los Angeles session player and recording artist, Gerald Albright. Albright also appears in the music video of the song.

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Those were the times we had
Sharing a joy that we thought would last
Memories of love and affection
Never really was just like a dream
Was it the simple things
That made me so crazy about you
Was it your charm or your passion
It's not hard to believe
I love you and I need you so I

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Did we give up too soon
Maybe we needed just a little room
Wondering how it all happened
Maybe we just need a little time
Though we did end as friends
Given the chance we could love again
She'll always love you forever
It's not hard to believe
I want you and I need you so I

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Sending you forget me nots
Forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
Forget me not
I want you to remember

Sending you forget me nots
Baby please forget me not
Sending you forget me nots
Baby please forget me not

Sending you forget me nots
To help me to remember
Baby please forget me not
I want you to remember

Sending you forget me nots
To help you to remember (help you to remember)
