The music in the Meerkat Music advert is the 1995 hit “Never Forget” recorded in 1995 by boy band Take That. The song written by band member Gary Barlow featured on their third studio album ‘Nobody Else’.

The advert begins with the distinctive children’s vocal section of the song featuring the lyrics:
We’ve come so far
And we’ve reached so high
And we’ve looked each day and night in the eye
And we’re still so young
And we hope for more
