‘The Memory Remains’ was released as the first single from ‘ReLoad’. It was first performed live in a ‘jam’ version on July 2, 1996. The song is about a once-great, now forgotten celebrity who is desperate to regain her fame but is driven half-mad with her obscurity. It was written by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich and featured British singer/actress Marianne Faithfull as a guest vocalist. When played live, the band encourages the fans to sing Marianne’s parts. It also contains lines spoken by Marianne taken from the Marilyn Monroe movie The Misfits (‘Say yes… at least say hello…’). The single would prove to be successful, hitting #28 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #13 on the UK Singles Chart. It would be Metallica’s last appearence in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 until 2008’s ‘The Day That Never Comes’. The cd single also includes the demo version and an early demo version of ‘Fuel’ with different lyris
