Lyric line(s) that make you go WOW!

I had to go for a drive this morning and I decided to burn a few cds to listen to on the way. One was Tempts vs Tops and the other was Supremes vs Marvelettes.

Today was one of those days where I listened more intently to the lyrics and was floored by some of them.

I'll Turn to Stone:
I would be like a statue in the park
Cold and alone like a man without a heart

Love Child:
Don't think that I don't need you
Don't think I don't want to please you
But no child of mine will be bearin'
The name of shame I been wearin."

Ask the Lonely:
The young and foolish laugh at love
So they run away
Confident and sure that fate
Will bring another love their way

My Whole World Ended:
How can I face tomorrow,
When yesterday is all I see?
I just don't wanna face tomorrow, if you're not sharing it with me.

Wow, some great stuff there.
What are some of your picks?

Martha Reeves & Vandellas Unreleased Masters

Back in February 2016, senior member mysterysinger posted a thread about a CD he has (which was not of the best quality but nevertheless interesting) and listed the songs that appeared on it. I went through the Don't Forget the Motor City compendium to see if every one ultimately showed up. He listed 21 songs total and I determined from the Lost & Found Hip O Select Spellbound release that 15 of them appeared in that. However, there are 6 others that did not appear in that and are not included in the DFTMC compendium.

The 6 songs are:

I'm Gonna See For Myself
He'll Hurt You So
I'm So Glad You Belong To Me
The Love I Feel for You
I Love the Way He Loves Me

Does anyone know if any of these 6 above appear elsewhere? I'd like to listen to them.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Least Favorite Song By.......Marvin Gaye?

Plan on doing these regularly

Marvin Gaye is a master, icon, legend

There was a thread a few months ago about “do you prefer 60s Marvin or 70s Marvin?”

That is a very hard question for me to answer and the answer changes day to day

If the question is “what is your favorite Marvin Gaye song?”

That is a very hard question for me to answer and the answer changes day to day

If the question is “what is your least favorite Marvin Gaye song?”

That is a very easy answer for me and the answer is carved in stone

It’s Til Tomorrow from the Midnight Love album

I can’t stand this song and never could

Whenever I listen to the album this song is usually not on for more than ten seconds before I hit skip

On occasion I will listen to it to give it another chance.

There are other songs that I didn’t like like and out of the blue for no rhyme or reason years later it hits me “I like this now!”

Not here

Marvin is one of those “listen to sing the phone book” singers

I’d rather listen to him sing the phone book than this one

That’s mine

What’s yours?

As much as you love Marvin what song can you just not get into?
