The Supremes sang in a polished style that bridged the worlds of pop and soul.
The Supremes were America’s ingenues, exuding a stylish charm and soulfulness that appealed across the board to black and white listeners at a time when racial divides were coming down.
Phil Collins covered this song but you can't beat the original!
You couldn't help but be uplifted by the music, the style and sophistication of the Supremes. The music and choreography inspired more than one teenager to sing in front of a bathroom mirror with a hairbrush as a microphone!
Thanks Diana, Mary and Florence (the original Supremes)! And thanks Fifi for yet another Fashionable Friday.
PS - In the early Eighties, the Supremes’ rags-to-riches life story was turned into a successful Broadway musical, Dreamgirls and won 6 Tonys. In 2007 the film version garnered three Golden Globes and two Oscars!
