1965 was a huge year:
On February 8th, 1965, The Supremes dropped a song that has stood the test of time. The girl group recorded the song in January 1965, released it as a single, and included it on their 6th album, "More Hits by The Supremes." The group was nominated for Best Contemporary Rock and Roll Group Vocal Performance at the 1966 Grammy's (this was a HUGE deal back then).
Diana Ross provided powerhouse vocals to the single, along with her incredible backup singers: Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, and the Andantes (Jackie Hicks, Marlene Barrow, and Louvain Demps).
The choreography with this song has also stood the test of time.
Happy 56th anniversary to the release of this incredible song!
Sad news to report: Mary Wilson, one of the founding members of The Supremes, died Monday. She was 76. RIP Mary Wilson!
