The Moody Blues did a great version of this song as well in 1964, but I prefer this original, with the soulful Bessie Banks, written by her husband Larry Banks.

Tracy Chapman was an unlikely singer/songwriter to chart in the top 10 in 1988, but there was something so pure, authentic, and truthful in her singing that this song resonated with many and, improbably, became a hit.

Monday Morning, Martha and the Vandellas put out the call.
Why Berry Gordy named the group The Vandellas seems to be a mystery, but they charted 26 hits in just nine years.

Monday morning, loosen your tie with the man, besides Berry Gordy, most responsible for the success of Motown, the brilliant singer and songwriter Smokey Robinson.
Gotta love the swivel 1.0 choreography for the Miracles, too.

Maxine Brown never broke through the top 10 on the US pop charts, but her talent was respected by producers like Berry Gordy. This song, written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, has been covered by lots of artists, but I like Maxine Brown’s original version the best.

Monday morning and I won’t blame you if you might be skeptical about two young white guys singing this Roberta Flack classic, penned by Eugene McDaniels.
It sounds like there’s just no way it can work. But Carson McKee and Josh Turner defy expectations once more. It’s really worth a listen. They’re head-slappingly good. Click on the video to play.
