    I have to say it is a very nice song, but not one of my favorites. I think it should have been an album cut but not a single. I know at the time that country music was gaining popularity, just like...

    My friend and former co-worker Aaron sang the theme, which he previously did and it became a viral video. He shared himself singing it to the cast on Facebook after it happened. I know that is even...

    That has been the problem with that group since its inception. It is not the actual group itself but promoters, etc. In different incarnations, there have been CDs released by them (or re-released)...

    I do like He's My Man. I just felt Where Do I Go From Here? was just not the best follow up single. I would have been fine with Its All Been Said Before as the first and He's My Man as the follow up...

    Your Favorite background duo

    I know many here feel that the original trio was the best and that Florence and Mary's background vocals could not be beat. While I love them together, I feel that Florence's voice was so loud that...

    Diana Ross needed the Supremes

    Thinking it over, do you think Diana Ross could have hit the heights she did without the framework of the Supremes to launch her? She would have had success, she had a unique voice and was very...

    I am glad that it made you a fan. Mary has done an excellent job of being in the media to celebrate the Supremes. As far as Ross' chart action, she did well in 1981 with her #1 duet Endless Love and...

    Ross started to decline prior to those books-the 1985 singles Eaten Alive hit #77 and Chain Reaction only hit #95 and that was with the magic touch of Michael Jackson and Barry Gibb, who had huge...

    I did not end up disliking her after reading Miss Ross and Dreamgirl. I liked all three even more because it humanized them. Diana seeking parental attention and getting it from Gordy/Motown and the...

    I don't know if that would be such a good idea since Jean Terrell actually sounded more like Dionne Warwick than Diana Ross. Plus Webb was once with Motown, not sure if Motown would be happy with...

    70's Supremes Missed Singles

    There were songs chosen as singles in the 1970's that maybe should not have been chosen, what do you think about these?

    I think that Right On was a very strong debut for the new Supremes, it seemed to have some of the strongest written songs for the group. It ALMOST seemed like Motown cared. New Ways had great covers...
