    What is your Motown Breakup Song?

    Mine is Send me No Flowers. I get chills from that song: Diana's voice is haunting, and I would say the lyrics may well be HDH's best for the Supremes, and definitly my favourite. I like to make up my own verses around the theme as I love flowers and people like the person described in the song by the singer are a huge pet peeve of mine. Only today the song would be Send me No Whatsapp Messages, or at least based on my own experiences with emotionally constipated men.

    For a while, when someone I was in love with completely broke my heart, If I were Your Woman was my song. Made me cry but feel better too.

  4. #4
    but..... Didn't You Know (You'd Have To Cry Sometime)? Gladys did.

    "It's My Turn"...

    I would add Brenda Holloway's Every Little Bit Hurts"... Brenda's vocal and the way she is in absolute control of the song is amazing... and chilling indeed

    Can't be the same song as Doris Day sang in 1964 (as the theme song of the film of the same title)!

    "Forever Came Today" sent it to a girl I was dating on Valentines Day, as work got more busy working on the radio I decided to sell all my disco equipment and went with a mate for three weeks in the USA, visiting yes Detroit & Philly, she was not Happy and we broke up. When she got married she asked me if I would do a spot for her on the disco she had booked as we remained friends then, you can guess what single I managed to fit in LOL! Never met anyone else?

    Oh wow the memories behind the Black Majic album

    "In and Out of My Life," Martha Reeves and the Vandellas -
    In Fact that is what I call my break up album and I will always say Martha was killing it.

    "Tear It Down"
    "No One There"
    "I hope I don't get My Heart Broke"
    "I Have Given You the Best Years of My Life"

    All were good for wine and cursing.

    My first ever gf... when we broke up it was The Four Tops " I just can't walk away"... bawled my eyes out when i heard that song

  27. #27
    Another: Just Another Lonely Night - Temptations. The way Paul sings it you'd think he was speaking from real experience. A tearjerker as far as I am concerned.

    OMG, that song is soooooo heartbreaking and beautiful.

    So much depth Diana gave that song. Valerie and Nick could write the you-know-what out of songs, I swear.
