    Oh Floy, I don't think I realized that "You Can't Do That" is a Beatles song. [[I'm not very familiar with their catalog.) Diana's vocal on "You Can't Do That" is one of my favs of her entire...

    This gripe is definitely understandable. I'd stick with this argument because the other one just isn't rational in a business sense. Products get delayed every day by every company. It's part of...

    My opinion of the Beatles has always been that they were excellent songwriters, but I've never- EVER- understood their appeal beyond that. There has never been a song of theirs that I've heard where...

    Believe it or not, I like the experimentation with the 80s sound on those hits. Unfortunately Diana sounds mostly horrible here. Never heard her sound quite so bad up to that point. Yikes!

    Yeah, Mary's voice didn't jump out of the speakers at anyone. Of the three original Supremes, she's the one I feel had more soundalike voices as peers. Mary sort of sounded like the lead singer of...

    GIT was poorly planned and executed, for the most part. Part of Gordy's master plan to spotlight that Diana could do "anything". Unfortunately, in the process, it becomes a stain alongside the many...

    There are times when it doesn't bother me and then times when it makes my throat hurt. Lol I still can't imagine that the first time she did it Gordy didn't go backstage and tell her to knock it off.

    I love reading about what you fans did in the pre-internet world to get your Supremes fixes! What was the set up like Reese? Was it a movie screen with these specials presented on a loop or was it...

    I agree about there not being enough Mary and Cindy.

    I had no idea Diana had "so many" writing credits to her name. Very interesting. I think the only one I knew about was "Work That Body" and "Ladies Hotline", thanks to an SD thread some time ago.

    I'm glad Diana's album is ranking among the best for some. She deserves every accolade and acknowledgement that comes her way, no matter how obscure.

    Yeah, I dig the jazziness of "Jingle Bells" as well. The backing vocals are a bit "stale" IMO, but it kind of works with the arrangement.

    More recent favs of mine have become "It's Christmastime"...

    Horrible list because of the inclusion of Supremes songs. And even if the mashup is allowable, placing Diana's version of "I Will Survive" on a list alongside her legendary and classic cuts with the...

    "Baby Love" and "Stop" are so overplayed. The track on "Baby Love" is really the only reason I ever play it. Diana's lead is arguably the weakest -and at the same time the most pop- vocal on a...
