William Bell - I Forgot to be Your Lover (1968)

Some Valentines Day chills here from the American songwriter and soul singer William Bell.

Aside from this song being an absolute heart-break classic, it has been both covered & sampled on numerous occasions often to hilarious effect.

A lot of people will recognize the hook from the Dilated Peoples 2001 track 'Worst to Worst' however the most mind blowing interpretation of William Bell's undoubted genius comes courtesy of Billy Idol (I prefer William Michael Albert Broad) and his horrorshow 1980s offering 'To Be a Lover'...
