And With Each Beat Of My Heart



Eddie Kendricks and Diana and The Supremes & The Tempts.

Turn up that volume and listen - did a Tamla record ever sound better? Frank Wilson, producer, and the legendary James Jamerson on bass.

Diana Ross & The Supremes With The Temptations - 'I'm Gonna Make You Love Me' (1968)

  3. And aint Ms Ross just a superb singer. I know she doesn't have that big Aretha thing going on, but it's all those quieter vocals and spoken bits that just sound so good. And she could belt it out when she wanted to. Just so inspiring!

  5. Can I name my favourite Motown songs? Can I buggery. There's just too many (including this one): choosing some from this velvet goldmine would be like asking which one of your nuts you would like removed. I still say it's the best pop music ever made. More please, Davy, if it's not too much trouble.

  6. Oh definitely sexy; I've Love Hangover playing in the background as I write. One of the sexiest grooviest records ever made I think.

    In fact I think a Friday night posting of the very same is in order!

  9. I love Motown, love this song and love Diana Ross in every sense of the word (before she went all showbizzy). I have a particular fondness for 'Love Child'.

  10. STOP. IN THE NAME OF LOVE.

    DICK'S FREE WISDOM OF THE WEEK ...

    If you had purchased £1,000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago, it would now be worth £4.95. With HBOS, earlier this week your £1,000would have been worth £16.50. £1,000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5, BUT if you bought £1,000 worth of Tennents Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get £214.

    So, based on the above statistics the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.

  13. I love this track, I love Motown, I love lots of Diana era Supremes, I love "I'm Still Waiting" and "Remember Me" - but, sorry, I can't be doing with Diana Ross.

    And while I'm at it - that is being contrary about entertainment icons - what is Ricky Gervais all about? He is just not funny. Every time I see his smug/simpering/sickly smiley face I just want to punch him. Or is that supposed to be the point?

    I'm sorry but I just had to get that off my chest.

    Should I see somebody about this?
