Stormy by Classics IV

Album: Greatest HitsReleased: 1968Charted:

  • A follow-up to Classics IV's hit "Spooky," this seems to be a plea for a moody girl to return to the cheerful self she was when they met. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
  • John Legend sampled Gabor Szabo's version of this for his 2006 song, "Save Room." (thanks, Ekristheh - Halath)

I think it is kind of funny that The Classics IV had so many one word hits: Traces, Stormy, Spooky, Sunny. The latter three seemed to be about different ways of describing a woman, and it is clear they had found a working formula. Members of this band formed the Atlanta Rhythm Section and Lynyrd Skynyd. Very influential group of musicians.Rick - Herndon, Va
I always felt like this was my song as I was a senior at Kokomo High School when it was released in 1968 and my name is really Stormy! The Classics IV has always been a favorite group of mine!Stormy - Kokomo, In
I was 8 years old in 1968. My older sister was always buying the current 45 single hits. Plus I really started paying attention to the songs on the radio. I remember this well. I like it better than "Spooky". They are both great. But "Stormy" is my favorite. I love the guitar and the whole mood of the song. Plus Dennis Yost had alot of soul in his voice. The Atlanta Rhythm Section ("So Into You",etc.) from the middle 70's. They were formed from members of The Classics IV and another local Atlanta,GA group. They did a cover version of "Spooky". Great stuff from a time gone by.Wayne - Salem, Va
The Supremes recorded a version in early 1969, which remained unreleased until the 1980's. I find their version to be better than the original.Brad - Berea, Oh
A great second cut from Classics IV, this got some 'crossover' play in Chicago, like The Rascals (Groovin', People Got to be Free) and Redbone (Come And Get Your Love) on both the rock and r&b stations. Just about every cat who had a 'moody' girlfriend knows what it's all about!Michael - Chicago, Il
