    It is too bad that the tape Diana received was messed up. In her 1989 VANITY FAIR profile, Diana mentioned that she was having a choreographer coming in to stage the new show. But I think she also...

    Not sure at all. But looking at Diana, this photo seems to be taken long after they stopped dating. This looks circa 1989.

    A similar quote was stickered onto the CAPTURED LIVE ON STAGE re-issue. Given how popular the musical was, it is not surprising that Mary and Motown capitalized on it.

    I'm assuming it was a promo meant to bring attention to the TEMPTATIONS IN A MELLOW MOOD album. This was before Motown started putting the same songs on both sides of their dj promos so that might...

    I liked YOU'RE A SPECIAL PART OF ME when it was first released. It was actually amongst the first singles I ever bought. But now I think it is somewhat boring and shouldn't have been the first single.

    That may or may not be the instance that I'm thinking of. As I recall, the story I read had the two of them singing the song while reading the words off a lyric sheet.
