Chuck Jackson singles chronology

"I Keep Forgettin'" is a song by Chuck Jackson, written by Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller, and Garfield.[1] It appears on his second studio album Any Day Now. It peaked at No. 55 on the Billboard Top 100 and remained on the chart for 7 weeks. It did not chart on the R&B chart. This single is often cited as one of the most innovative and least commercial singles written and produced by Leiber-Stoller.

In 1982, Michael McDonald released a song titled "I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)", its similarity to Jackson's "I Keep Forgettin'" resulted in Leiber and Stoller being given a songwriting credit.
