Looking back at how music was done in our grandfathers’ era calls for nostalgia every single time. Those gorgeous sounding string arrangements and longing lyrics have soundtracked people’s memories for more than half a century, so it is really nice when eras collide and a revival almost time-travelled song is born.
That song is 2009’s Never Forget You, a hit from Noisettes’ album Wild Young Hearts. With a powerful voice wrapped with an orchestra, a cut-to-the-chase bass line, punk rock power chords and an animalistic drumming, this tune brings out the best of many classic and modern genres into a powerful statement on a lost love and foreplay.
Such an unforgettable sweet joy of a song.
