    You Keep Me Hanging On is one of my favorites. I played this poor record so many times I worn it out. Love it.

    Have a terrific Music Monday. 🙂

    I really like that first song, although for me the video didn’t play, just the audio. Many years ago I was visiting my cousin in LA and walking, whilst talking to her, not paying attention and I almost walked smack into Diana Ross. It’s not actually as random as it sounds we were at the hotel doing the academy awards (the day before) – not staying there, just for gawking

    Keep me hanging on is an amazing song! Have I told you that I once didn’t see Diana Ross? I couldn’t figure out why everyone was staring at me when I walked through an airport. I later learned it was because Diana Ross was behind me. I never saw her . . . and I guess no one else did either because they were all staring at me. Tee hee.

    Just loved reminiscing with the two Diana Ross & The Supremes hits. The other song, Ready or Not Here I Come, the title reminded me of something from a Saturday morning cartoon about counting by fives or something. Have a wonderful day!

    Oh yeah! Take me back in time when party was the main word in our vocabulary! Now your first one is a new one for me. Never heard that one, but who hasn’t heard every single song of the Supremes! Take me back when rock & roll was tons of fun & we were singing on the corners with our friends! We so thought we were hot!!! LOL ROCK ON DUDE!

  11. Great selections! The Delfonics song apparently inspired a lot of hip-hop/R&B artists; that’s wonderful!

    Diana Ross & the Supremes are perhaps my favorite Motown group. “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” is a great classic! Loved dancing down memory lane with you and loved having you on the dance floor at Monday’s Music Moves Me!

  15. I feel like I should be doing #1.

    I love these hits! Thanks for sharing!
