Music video[edit]

Just one day after this video was shot, the Corrs were also filming the video for their next single, "The Right Time". However, Atlantic US skipped "Forgiven, Not Forgotten" and didn't release it as a single.

The theme for the video is dark and brooding, which fits to the more serious lyrics about someone who has committed suicide and left someone else behind. The band is all dressed in black, the girl's makeup is very pale and there is not a lot of smiling. The video itself is pretty lowkey but yet effective in showing the Corrs on a rotating platform with various landscapes appearing behind them. Though supposed to convey some of that special Irish pop/Celtic mix, "Forgiven Not Forgotten" was shot in Santa Monica, California.

Not only did the platform make some of the viewers nauseous, but Andrea felt seasick after being on the circling stage for hours. The shoot took from about 7:00am to 11:00pm to film.
