This song says summer to many music lovers including me! It was released in the summer of 1964, fifty years ago, but it has worn well. It was the signature song of one of the earliest and most exciting vocal groups of the Motown ( Detroit) Sound . The Supremes burst on the scene later.
It is a kick to see the styles. . . .hair and clothes that were at the height of fashion of the day shown in the grainy video.
An interesting tidbit is that this song is one of only fifty sound recordings preserved by the Library of Congress in the National Registry. Martha Reeves, the lead singer, was thrilled and said, “It’s a song that makes you want to get up and dance!” Maybe they need to dance more now in Washington!
I agree !
Do you agree? Do you have a fave summer song? What is it? I am open for suggestions for summer favorites for July and August. . . .
