Music video by Adele performing Don't You Remember. (C) 2011 XL Recordings Ltd
"Don't You Remember" is the fourth track from Adele's second studio album, 21. It was written by Adele and Dan Wilson. It was produced by Rick Rubin, who produced several songs on the album. "Don't You Remember" was originally planned to be the first track on 21 rather than the fourth, replacing "Rolling in the Deep" as the first track on the album.
The song is viewed as a more country-style ballad, and was added to the album late when a more contemplative Adele (who had been struggling with her emotions toward her ex-boyfriend who inspired most of the songs on the album) became increasingly aware of how her bitterness towards the break-up negatively coloured her perception of her former lover. In an interview, the singer stated, "I managed to step out of the bitter mode that I was in when I was writing the record and I suddenly got really ashamed and disgusted with the manner that I was portraying someone who was really important to me... and I felt really childish that I had made him out to be a complete twat." Adele added that it was "just trying to remember why you loved someone in the first place."

The song is an admission of her own shortcomings ("I know I have a fickle heart/And a bitterness/And a wandering eye/And a heaviness in my head"), as well as a plea to her ex-spouse to remember why he initially fell in love with her. She has also stated that the song is also about wondering if her ex-lover felt bad about why he dumped her, and she said that her feelings toward her lover were important, because she would begin to lose it if he did not text her back within 10 seconds. (She had laughed after saying this.) She has also stated that sometimes when she hears the song, it is like discovering music for the first time.

Adele later explained the song's meaning to The Sun, saying: "You know when you forget why you loved someone? I was just thinking about how my entire body would just shiver if my ex touched me to say hello. It's sad when you can't remember why you loved someone."

During the writing of the song, the Lady Antebellum song "Need You Now" was all over the radio and exposed Adele to more country music (originally being exposed to the genre by her tour bus driver). The song, which she later covered with Darius Rucker and included on the deluxe edition of 21, inspired her to write "Don't You Remember" in a lot of ways. When she was interviewed about the song and the inspiration behind it, Adele said:

“ It's got quite a country tinge to it. What gave me the courage to try to do that musically was 'Need You Now.' When I was in the studio in Malibu, this was the last song I wrote while I was recording, and 'Need You Now' was everywhere. You could not even change your radio station without it being played. You couldn't escape it and, luckily, I loved it! (laughs) Or it would have been awful! But the feeling the song gave me, I was trying to channel it in my own song. Unlike my first record, when I was writing how 'your life is going to suck without me and I'll be fiiiine', you know, it suddenly dawned on me that my ex was actually pretty incredible. I wanted to write a song about how it was such a shame that we fell out of love, and we can't even remember why we loved each other and why we fell out of love. It seemed like a perfect subject, like this emotion could be in a country song."

Don't You Remember lyrics:
When will I see you again ?
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said
No final kiss to seal any seams
I had no idea of the state we were in

I know I have a fickle heart and a bitterness
And wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

But don't you remember, don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

When was the last time you thought of me ?
Or have you completely erased me from your memory
I often think about where I happen to roam
The more I do, the less I know

But I know I have a fickle heart and a bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head

But don't you remember, don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

I gave you the space so you could breathe
I kept my distance so you would be free
And I hope that you found the missing piece
To bring you back to me

Why don't you remember, don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

When will I see you again... ?
