Motown Monday ~ Supremes ~ A Breathtaking Guy.

Released in 1963 on the Motown Label, Written by Smokey Robinson.

Actual Title was the longest in Motown’s History.

“A Breath Taking, First Sight Soul Shaking, One Night Love Making, Next Day Heartbreaking Guy”

And out of all the Supremes songs, this was my all time favorite. The Harmony on this song is timeless. All three singers Flo Ballard, Mary Wilson & Diana Ross sung the chorus but on
” Guy ” were together.

Diana: Are you just a breathtaking…
Florence: First sight soul-shaking…
Diana: One night love-making…
Mary: Next day heartbreaking…
Group: …Guy

And there was no better group of musicians anywhere or anytime better than the Funk Brothers!

And I was born just three blocks (14th & W. Grand Blvd.) from Hitsville in 1957. Man did I arrive in time or what… LOL

Instrumentation – The Funk Brothers

 

~ It didn’t get no better than Detroit! Baby…….

One night you held me tight
And whispered in my ear
All night sweet words
I never heard
And I believed every word

Next day you came my way
Without a word to say you passed me by
You didnt give an eye
My darling wont you tell me why
Youre acting strange toward me
Why have you changed toward me

Are you just a breathtaking
First sight soul-shaking
One night love-making
Next day heartbreaking guy

That night your love was true
The next day we were through
Your love wont come
And you were moving on
And I was left to cry alone
What have I done to you
Was it just fun to you

Are you just a breathtaking
First sight soul-shaking
One night love-making
Next day heartbreaking guy

Breathtaking, soulshaking,
Lovemaking, heartbreaking guy
Breathtaking, soulshaking,
Lovemaking, heartbreaking guy

The video I chose was the best quality of the song, but I never agreed that the “SUPREMES” should have been changed to one name above the other two. And if I did it would have been Florence Ballard in the top spot. All three could sing. Mary Wilson had a fabulous voice but Flo’s had the best set of pipes of all. She deserved better than what she got and will always be remembered.

You are very much missed Flo. Your Magic will live on with us forever.
