"Forget Me Nots" is a song by American singer-songwriter Patrice Rushen, co-written by Rushen, Freddie Washington and Terri McFaddin. The song appeared on Rushen's seventh album Straight from the Heart (1982). Making a radical shift in her music, Rushen would continue to harness the particular style of this record all through to her next album Now (1984). Originally deemed by record label executives as a "flop", Rushen released the song and the song became a Top 40 pop (#23), Top 5 R&B (#4), and Top 5 dance (#2) hit on the Billboard charts and is the hit for which she is most notable. 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 Dance charts, but "Forget Me Nots" was her only US Top 40 pop hit and ranked #86 on VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980s.
