"Forever More" is an electronica-influenced song performed by the band Moloko for their 2003 album Statues.

Musical structure[edit]

"Forever More" is a house and dance-style track makes extensive use of two instruments: bass drums and brass horns.[1] These two sounds are aggressively used in a one-and-a-half minute long "ad lib" session; this part of the song was cut out of the radio edit due to time constraints.

Critical reception[edit]

"Forever More" was well received by critics. Contact Music called the song an "uplifting […] dance-floor filler."[1]

Video[edit]

The video features Murphy dancing in a tunnel while singing the song. Over the course of the song she is joined by backup dancers. The video was filmed with Murphy dancing in front of a blue screen, improvising her movements. The backup dancers were added later, filmed dancing in the tunnel. Due to this, the backup dancers sometimes dance out of time with Murphy, the effect that the director wanted.
