Credited as "The Miracles featuring Bill 'Smokey' Robinson," this was one of group's earliest charting singles, reaching #94 on the Billboard Pop chart.
Motown president Berry Gordy, Jr. had The Miracles record the song a couple of times during its chart run. The initial version had minimal orchestration, while the second one, which is played by most oldies stations today had added strings. Smokey Robinson told Mojo magazine he preferred the original version. "The record was doing really well but barely thought it would go further on the white charts if we added strings to it. But that didn't happen. Quality – wise, I don't think it's a better record with strings. It just didn't happen."
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
