Eden Kane - Forget Me Not

Silver-suited 60s popster Eden Kane sings 'n' swaggers his way through his third Top 10 hit single in this fab full-colour jukebox film.

Performance 1961 2 mins


Though coolly clad in icy white jacket with silver lapels, impressively bequiffed pop heartthrob Eden Kane still raises the temperature with a smoulderingly sulky performance of hit single Forget Me Not. Its writer, Les Vandyke - also known as Johnny Worth - was on a winning streak: he'd already penned a string of smashes for teen idol Adam Faith, including his first number one, What Do You Want?

This pop promo was one of hundreds made for the Cinebox - a coin-operated film jukebox, fleetingly found in British pubs and clubs. Pricier than your average audio-only jukebox, Cinebox never really caught on - but its films captured some terrific early 60s pop acts in full colour. Eden - who gives a terrific performance here, briefly breaking off from Elvis Presley-like sneering to throw some gloriously jerky Billy Fury-style shapes - would enjoy two more top ten hits. Eden's brother, Peter Sarstedt, later wrote and sang Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?, a chart topper in 14 countries.
