    Diana Ross - "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You" - the lp version

    Fun to compare to the excellent live version -

    I love this even though it's not an A&S song or production. I think it fits well on the debut album, especially because of its similarity/connection to Someday We'll Be Together.

    I really love this song. Shouldve been a major hit IMHO.

    Sometimes I wonder if this could have been the debut solo single. It shares much with Someday, not least a memorable hook. I can't imagine it a #1, but Reach Out and Touch was barely a Top 20. I can imagine this as an attention-getting Top Ten. The timely release of the A&S album soon after would pave the way for releasing the stunning ANMHE, which is a #1 in any scenario I can imagine.

    ... “Someday We'll Be Together" part 2... (brilliant though)

    Hi Tom! Yes, and I would LOVE someone to create a mash-up of the two, they fit together so well!

    I was immediately drawn to the somewhat country groove when I first heard this. The background harmonies and arrangement are beautiful. Who were the other artists who recorded this?

    Maybe a certain, young and tech-knowledgeable British citizen could make this a project

    This great song should have been released as a single!

    Kupper remix should keep this slower pace!

    I disagree. There is not enough lyrical substance in this song. Also, I think there should have been more joy in Ross voice when she sings “These things will keep me loving you.”

    I never picked up a country groove before. Just always thought it as really catchy pop/R&B that Ross excels with. But I hear what you mean. R&B and Country are connected in many ways.

    I agree with Circa 1824 on this one. As much as I like Diana this version makes me fall asleep. I like the Velvelettes version a lot more and they have a better backing track with the heavy drums (just my opinion). I do like the background singers on Diana's version, who ever they are.

    If I find one of them, I'll ask 'em myself

    Although I love this version, this would never have been released as a single as its predecessor, 'Someday We'll Be Together" was assigned to DRATS so Motown needed a different sound for a Diana Ross solo hit.
    However, this song did prompt the release of the the original Velvelettes version in the U.K. where it became a hit on the British charts in 1971.

    For me, the whole album is a masterpiece. Each song is presented as a mini-melodrama with Diana at her vocal peak. I really like the darker tone on many of the songs which she handles with consummate skill and artistry.
    I kinda wish Motown had done the unexpected and taken a chance with a song like “Where There Was Darkness” or “Dark Side Of The World” as a single. It might just have surprised everyone and led to a similar approach in future recording projects.
    The superb quality of these recordings ensures that the album remains timeless, and will probably still sound as great in another 50 years.
