Forgotten Gems

In 2007 this website was created as an “online magazine” with monthly articles, which included a monthly feature called Forgotten Gem. These were examinations of individual songs — not so much of the composition or lyrics, but rather these articles were mostly about some of the backstory and history surrounding the selected songs.

Although most of these articles are a decade old, the information is still timely and enlightening, and preserved here for your enjoyment…
