    Greatest Cover Songs

    So if you had to compile the tracklist for a Supremes collection featuring their very best cover songs, what would your list look like? I'm going to stick to 12, but you can make your own rules on...

    About a year after Flo was fired. The three of them were at a party at Gordy's house. It didn't end well.

    Diana and Mary had a weird relationship post Supremes. Honestly it's strange that they never spoke about Flo's death with one another. Seems like as soon as the news broke that either woman would...

    I agree it was appropriate for the two women to speak at Flo's funeral, but I don't believe it was something either woman had to do. Like I said before, I've seen what happens when people are forced...

    While I'm not irritated by Diana's voice on the song, I agree that it might have been better had she used her lower register. I also agree that Mary, and even Flo, could have done a worthy lead on it...

    I can agree with this. There's talk that once inside the church Diana became very emotional in a dramatic fashion. If true, I've never faulted her for that. I've been to enough funerals to expect...

    It's possible that Gordy may have skipped the service because he figured the Ballard family might be hostile toward him, but the more likely reason is that he wasn't overly fond of Florence after a...

    "Stars" might be pushing it. Flo's Motown peers spread throughout might be more accurate, folks like Kim Weston or one more Contours. As previously stated, with the day of the funeral having to be...

    Well that's the sorrow of being a fan of Flo's voice. I don't give a shit about Flo being some great big superstar like Diana Ross. Most singers, no matter how talented, are not lucky enough to...

    I'm not sure this was the song for Betty or for Cal. But the harmonies are great. The Supremes lost this battle because of song choice. They should have chosen more popular hit tunes, although I'm...

    We tend to think that it had to be a formed group as backing vocalists, but Motown was no stranger to pulling people into the recording studio as needed, so it's possible that the male vocalists...

    I was mostly impressed with their renditions of the 70s tunes. I'd love to see them in person just doing those. The ladies sound very good and I'm sure even better in person.

    Another fav of mine where she uses some of her lower register is "Share Some Love". Also "Come On Boy" I love very much.

    Gotta give some credit to Reese. It was his comment in another thread that inspired this one.

    I would call the playlist "Ain't No Valley Low Enough".:cool:

    "My Baby My Own" and "Brown Baby" are favs of mine as well Ollie. In fact "Brown Baby" may just be my favorite Diana non single song.
