Wagoner Parton Say Forever You'll Be Mine1975 | Peak: #5

 

“Forever is the love,” they sing, “that is true and undemanding.”

Which just goes to show that what makes for a great love doesn’t necessarily make for a great song.

As they were reaching the end of their professional partnership, “Say Forever You’ll Be Mine” was as true to their original sound as it could be, but the song is so undemanding of their combined talent and energy that what we’re left with is as sterile as it is yawningly predictable.

They’re just going through the

motions. The thrill is gone.

Written by Dolly Parton

    Apparently I like this one a lot more than you do. While it is not among my Porter & Dolly favorites, I would rate it a “B”
