the supremes.

11 Aug

my friends, i cannot stop listening to The Supremes.

i can’t control it; i’m helpless to their motown sounds, effortless coolness, emotional impact of ross’s voice, and intricate arrangements. i’ve been mixing their music into all my playlists this summer. nothing picks me up like a little mid-afternoon throw back.

my all time Supreme favorites, for your listening pleasure. (via grooveshark)

oh, and i don’t need to tell you how much i ADORE their style. can i please be that glamourous when i grow up?!

ps. anyone remember the 1996 film That Thing You Do?

well i still love the soundtrack to that film, specifically Hold My Hand, Hold My Heart. i’ve had that tune in my head all week. very supreme-esque. listen here.

    A great time in music history. When real talent was discovered and not manufactured….here it is, nearly 50 years later and their sound endures. I love that you love it! SO much talent came out of Detroit in those days!
