Heaven Must Have Sent You - the Elgins
Surely the best opening line in pop
I've cried so many endless nights
just holding my pillowtight
unless you count
once upon a time you dressed so fine, you threw the bums a dime in your prime didn't you?
Close your eyes and I'll miss you, tomorrow I'll kiss you ...............(You can’t do that on Karoake)
I'm gonna tell Aunt Mary about Uncle John, he claims he has the music, but he has a lot of fun
Sugar Pie Honey Bunch
but my vote still goes with this, the slightly querulous voice of Sandra Edwards with the quickpace counterpoint of "pillowtight" against the double emphasis of "so many" and "endless nights”, you can feel her curled up in bed, hurt.
Total merge of poetic phrasing and music in the way that Holland / Dozier / Holland achieved over and over again with Motown in the 60's. Bliss.
