Moanin' Lisa from Chillicothe Mo.Way back in 1968, I was in grade school, but remember this hit got lots of airplay in the Kansas City area where I'm from. Lots of memories. Plus, it was my parent's favorite song. My 2nd grade teacher, Miss Coody, used to hum this almost all day in the winter of '68 & nearly drove us tots insane! It certainly was an infectious melody & great big hit. I still love The Supremes by the way.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 5th 1969, "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" by the Supremes with the Temptations peaked at #2 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on December 1st, 1968 and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100... It also reached #2 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart and #3 in the United Kingdom... The two weeks it was at #2 on the Top 100 & R&B charts, the #1 spot was held by fellow Motown act, Marvin Gaye, with "I Heard It Through The Grapevine".

Philadelphia International replaced Motown as the r&b label of the 70s.

Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
