Noisettes: Never Forget You
One of my favorite current songs is "Never Forget You" by the UK band Noisettes. They are a three piece combo featuring the talented lead singer and diva, Shingai Shoniwa, guitarist Dan Smith and drummer Jamie Morrison. Noisettes have been together since at least 2005 and have released 2 albums and a number of singles so far.
Their latest single "Never Forget You" has been on Mel's Weekly Top 20 chart for more than 10 weeks now and has finally reached the pinnacle position of #1. Yes, this is my current favorite song despite it not getting airplay on local radio. The song is a clever melding of early 60s soul, do-wop and rock n roll with an alternative rock overlay. Great vocals, fuzzy guitars, great sounding backup singers and musicians and a feel that harkens back to music of the early and mid 1960s.
I already own the single MP3 release of "Never Forget You" and have the album Wild Young Hearts on order. Noisettes deserve a listen and this single should be a chart topper everywhere!
