This song, Baby Love, was the second of a long line of hits, for Diana Ross and The Supremes, on the Tamla Motown label. It reached number one, in the UK and on the Billboard Hot 100, in 1964. It is one of my Top 100, all time favorites.
On what would have been his 80th Birthday, here is one of Marvin Gaye’s biggest hits, “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”. This single, on Motown, is from 1968, when it reached number one, on the Billboard Hot 100, in December that year, and stayed there for 7 weeks. RIP Marvin Gaye 1939-1984.
To celebrate the 75th birthday of Diana Ross, I play here, what became her second solo, Billboard Hot 100, number 1 hit, from 1973, “Touch Me In The Morning”. This single also reached number 6 in the UK, in that year.
This song, one of my favorites, by The Commodores reached Number 4, on the charts in the US, and reached Number 9 in the UK in 1977. It was issued on Motown, and was written by the Commodores lead singer, Lionel Richie. This is probably my favorite slow song, of all time.
This song, one of my favorites, by Diana Ross was a top ten hit, but only in the UK in January 1974.
