The Supremes: Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart

Abagond

Remarks:

Regency_transistor_radioThis went to #7 on the American R&B charts in 1966 – low for the Supremes. It did not chart in Britain. It is a Holland-Dozier-Holland song. I noticed that it sounds good even over bad speakers. Maybe that is on purpose since back then it had to sound good over AM radio on cheap transistor radios. Like how “The Twilight Zone” is made to look good on small screen black-and-white televisions.

This song appeared before in this space as a 1989 cover by the Good Girls.
