The Top Uses of Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable” in Movies or TV

Nat King Cole was a popular singer and dominated much of the 1940’s and 50’s with his music and his sweet, crooning voice. Unforgettable however was one of his all-time most popular songs and one that has been recorded many upon many different times to the delight of audiences that still remember what his music was all about. This song has endeared a good number of decades and has still been used in recent movies to great effect. His daughter even sang a duet with this song at one point after she’d come to grips with the fact that she was still known as his daughter by many that loved her music as well.

It’s an amazing to be quite honest.

5. Watchmen

I would and I wouldn’t have expected this song to appear in this movie. I would because it hearkens back to older, better times in some cases and yet still moves forward into darker, more chaotic periods as well. The Watchmen were an idea that sat kind of awkwardly when they came onto the big screen, though if you asked one of their fans they might say that it was a decent attempt at making them just a little more mainstream.

4. Primary Colors

It’s been argued more than once that those who hate politics are those that don’t ever strive to make the changes they’d like to see in the world. With politics such as these however in the movie, it’s not much of a wonder that a lot of people want nothing to do with them. True, it’s one’s civic duty to stand up and be heard, but when politicians go around flinging dirt at each other and expect their supporters to do the same it’s harder to support the cause.

3. Sammy Davis Jr. 

This song has been covered by a lot of great artists but Sammy Davis Jr. is one of the many that just nailed it so perfectly that you might have to listen to this and then listen to Cole again to see who did it better. Most would say that Cole is of course the best and can’t be topped, but Sammy did a great job on this song and you can hear how much he put into it with every note he sings.

2. Finding Dory

The most forgetful fish in the whole wide ocean is on a quest to find her parents, and yet she has so little to go on that it’s bound to be a bigger adventure that she took part in to find Nemo. In many ways it’s easy to feel sorry for Dory since she’s not stupid at all, she’s just very forgetful and in many ways very flighty due to her condition. But she’s always a riot to watch since her personality is larger than life.

It almost always comes down to the fact that the person who sings the song is the best at it. Cole was one of a kind and unfortunately the fact that he belonged to an entirely different time period means a lot of people never got o experience his voice firsthand. But thankfully we can still enjoy the song.

Unforgettable, in every way.
