Patrice Rushen - Forget Me Nots 1982

"Forget Me Nots" is a R&B, post-disco song written by American singer-songwriter Patrice Rushen, Freddie Washington and Terri McFaddin for Rushen's groundbreaking seventh studio album, Straight from the Heart (1982). Originally deemed by record label executives as a "flop", Rushen released the song and the song became a Top 40 (#23) pop, Top 5 (#4) R&B, and Top 5 (#2) dance hit on the Billboard charts and is the hit she's most notable for. Rushen's performance received a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Rushen had a number of songs on the R&B and Jazz charts, but this was her only U.S. Top 40 hit and ranked #86 on VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980s.
