There are several songs I like that are about Remembering or Forgetting. I couldn't pick just one, so here they are:
Revelation by The Yellow Jackets. Whitney Houston has a live version of this song as well, but the video is blurry and the sound quality isn't that great.
These songs, I believe, are about Marilyn Monroe. Elton John's Candle in the Wind you already know, but the other is by a French Canadian singer, Roch Voisine. This song is in English, but was a hit in France back in the day. I love this song! It's called On the Outside. He's easy on the eyes, too. ;o)
My dad used to love this song by Doris Day and used to sing it while playing his ukulele when I was a kid. Que Sera Sera.
Another one by Roch Voisine - Souviens-Toi (de moi) - "Remember Me"
Unfortunately, this one is not in English. It's about a guy who is thinking about his summer love and asks her to remember him. It's such a beautiful song!
I was trying to find an English translation online, but there isn't one and I don't have time to do it, but I'll translate the first few lines for you.
L'été s'est envolé (The summer flew away)
Le temps tourne à l'orage (The weather turned to storm)
Mon bel oiseau bleu m'a laissé (My beautiful blue bird left me)
Le cœur dans les nuages (The heart in the clouds)
Un an sans toi (A year without you)
Devant moi (Before me)
Un an et tu vas m'oublier (A year and you're going to forget me)
Mettre un autre à ma place (Put another in my place)
Mon bel oiseau bleu a pleuré (My beautiful blue bird cried)
Sur mon château de sable (On my sand castle)
Où que tu sois (Wherever you are)
De moi là-bas (me over there)
Oui souviens-toi (Yes, remember)
This clip has the French lyrics which are sort of distracting, but if you took French in school, you might be able to understand what you read here.
This song was one of my dad's favorite songs that makes me cry every time I hear it. It's about a boy who lost his daddy. My dad's mom died when he was 8, so when I think about that and listen to this song, it chokes me up. It's by a Hawaiian band sung in English. God Bless my Daddy/Mom by Hui O'hana.
Now get up and dance to one of my favorite songs, September by Earth, Wind, & Fire! Come on! You know you want to!
