  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 28, 1961, the Spinners performed "That's What Girls Are Made For" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV network weekday-afternoon program 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time the song was in it's first week on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, at position #82; six weeks later it would peak at #27 {for 1 week} and it spent 8 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #5 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart...
    Between 1961 and 1995 the Detroit quintet had forty records on the Hot R&B Singles chart; seventeen made the Top 10 with six reaching #1, "I'll Be Around" for 5 weeks in 1972, "Could It Be (I'm Falling In Love)" for 1 week in 1973, "One Of A Kind (Love Affair)" for 4 weeks in 1974, "Mighty Love" for 1 week in 1974, "Games People Play" for 1 week in 1975, and "Rubberband Man" for 1 week in 1976.
  • John from Nashville, TnWhen Atlantic Records offered Thom Bell a long list of acts he could produce, the Spinners name was last on the list. Bell remembered this song and immediately wanted to produce them. The top brass from Atlantic tried to steer him from producing the Spinners because the act was about to be dropped from the label. Bell persisted, and the rest is history.
