Forget Me Not


Forget Me Not

"Forget Me Not" is a 1968 single by Motown girl group Martha and the Vandellas. Though the song failed to ignite charts in America barely hitting the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at #93 (it was the b-side to their hit, "I Promise to Wait My Love") and failing to chart on the US R&B charts (a rarity for the group), it became a big hit on the UK pop singles chart peaking at #11 netting them their biggest UK hit in several years. The song displays the narrator promising her lover to not forget her love to him while he's "off to war". Though not loosely based on the Vietnam War, it had hints that the subject matter was about the war.
