5 Lyrics That Are Truly "Unforgettable"

Here's a memory refresher on the off-chance you forgot about these songs.


This Sunday, CBS is premiering a brand new season of Unforgettable, a crime drama that focuses on Det. Carrie Wells, an NYPD crime-solver with an unusually detailed memory. To coincide with the show's premiere, we've assembled a list of our favorite songs that include the word "unforgettable." Come to think of it, these songs might make for a choice soundtrack as the show's perps are being hauled off in the back of police cruisers. Check out the list below:

5. Drake - "Unforgettable"

And when you get to talking 'bout the greatest / (I just really hope that) You'll think of me / (I'm doing my thing) I'm tryna be unforgettable

Drake's not shy about his goal of leaving a legacy that is truly unforgettable — he tells us so in the song's title AND in the lyrics.

4. Cut Copy - "Unforgettable Season"

The holidays we spent will fade / Now that I've been gone / Just remember / That we met / You're still at home

There's always one season that has particular significance. Perhaps it was a summer fling or sentimental holiday that made it particularly unforgettable.

3. Glass Tiger - "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone"

Don't forget me when I'm gone / My heart would break / I have loved you for so long / It's all I can take

Okay, so we broke the rules a bit. The word "unforgettable" doesn't appear verbatim in this song. It's a song about not forgetting though, so it's on point. Plus the music video has some of the most quintessentially 80s haircuts to ever exist. It had to be included.

2. Katy Perry - "California Gurls"

California girls, we're unforgettable / Daisy dukes, bikinis on top / Sun-kissed skin, so hot / We'll melt your popsicle

California girls were memorable enough before this song, but Katy Perry helped make them truly unforgettable after crafting 2010's undisputed Song of the Summer.

1. Nat King Cole - "Unforgettable"

Unforgettable / In every way / And forever more / That's how you'll stay

Did you know? The song "Unforgettable," written by Irving Gordon, was originally titled "Uncomparable." Luckily the publishing company pressured Irving to change it in 1951 just prior to Nat King Cole recording his famous version of the song. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?
