Song of the Day 2/15/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1.  Today’s song is #528:

The Supremes – You Keep Me Hanging On

Holland-Dozier-Holland – the black Beatles – were just as good at writing haunting, classically-inflected minor key songs as they were at R&B and this one’s proof. Forget the gazillions of covers – didn’t Bananarama do one at some point in the 80s? – the 1966 hit is the classic. James Jamerson – jazz bassist playing rock – what else is there to say.
