When it has to be the Supremes or nothing

"You Can't Hurry Love" was the second single from the Supremes' album The Supremes A' Go-Go. It reached the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart in the United States, and #3 in the United Kingdom. The Supremes' version of the song is honored by inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's permanent collection of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
The Supremes also released their own Italian cover of the song: L'amore verrĂ  (Love will come).

There is an aspiration: sit down and listen to all 500 songs that shaped rock and roll.  Let the games begin.

Kerry - And the difficult part is thinking of favorites that aren't included. But yes, what a playlist. xo

My goodness!
Know it can hard it get longer as one ages. My list is way past 500 and so many artists that it's a tough decision on which to play when.
Supremes helped shape my days.

Heidrun - Yes, the list grows so long but then, that's one of the good things. Memory is fascinating for the way the songs sound exactly the same in our heads as they do when played. xo
