Unforgettable
written by Irving Gordon.
(February 14, 1915 – December 1, 1996)
The song's original working title was Uncomparable. The music publishing company asked Gordon to change it to Unforgettable. The song was published in 1951.
Irving Gordon was born in Brooklyn, New York and later lived on Coney Island. He was named Israel Goldener but later changed his name to Irving Gordon. As a child, he studied violin, In high school he wrote a symphony piece but his teacher laughed at it. He wanted to study at Juilliard but Jews were not admitted then, After attending public schools in New York City, went to work in the Catskill Mountains at some of the resort hotels in the area. While working there, he took to writing parody lyrics to some of the popular songs of the day. In the 1930s, he took a job with the music publishing firm headed by talent agent Irving Mills, at first writing only lyrics but subsequently writing music as well.
After Gordon was introduced to Duke Ellington in 1937, Ellington sometimes invited him to put words to his compositions.

Many since Nat King Cole's 1951 recording have sung this "unforgettable" song.
