Subject: I know you got soul... HINTS AND CLUES ADDED!!!!

Written By: FaultyDog on 11/05/05 at 12:31 pm

...so you'll have no troubles with this lyrics quiz. 8)

All songs are classified as "soul" (but you may find a song or two not quite fitting in, depending on your own definition).

#7 is "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)"; I know that James Taylor covered it in the mid-70's, but he's not a "soul" artist. I'm drawing a blank on the original performer right now. :-\\

#9. "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted" by Jimmy Ruffin. (For the record, Paul Young covered it in the early 90's.)

That's all I can figure out now. I also know the title for #8, but I know that the Beatles did NOT originally perform it.

Quite right, Jeff...but allow me to re-draw your 'blank'...

The artist was Marvin Gaye (and Junior Walker did a corker of a version too)

That's all I can figure out now. I also know the title for #8, but I know that the Beatles did NOT originally perform it.


Right again...and more Motown...

This one was 'Money' and was originally done by Barrett Strong...

...which ties in nicely with...

#4. 'War' - Edwin Starr (because Mr. Strong co-wrote it!)

#25. 'You'll Never Know' - Hi-Gloss (terrific one-hit-wonder!)

2. Please, Mr. Postman-The Marvellettes
3. Ain't Too Proud To Beg-The Temptations
23. Baby, Where Did Our Love Go?-Diana Ross and The Supremes

Well, you got 1.5 correct there, Jeff. :) And for the record, #9 was also covered by Colin Blunstone in 1981.

#12--Sam & Dave's Hold On, I'm Coming ?

#6 Patches by Clarence Carter?

Ah! That was it! Thanks. But the full name of the song is "Money (That's What I Want)" and the answer has been posted just like that. :)

Oops! Missed this one... :-[

You're right on #12 (was thinking of another artist, but you know...hard to tell who did the original  :-\\), but #6 is not Patches. And it's not by Clarence Carter. So basically: you've got that one wrong.  :(
To help you along: it's a song by a girl group (not the Supremes, not Gladys Knight & the Pips).

Why not, indeed...!!

#6. 'Jimmy Mack' - Martha & The Vandellas (before Motown decided to insert her surname on the records...!)

#13. 'I'm Doing Fine Now' - New York City, later covered by The Pasadenas

#22. 'With This Ring' - The Platters...an almost different line-up from the 50s group, but a super record nonetheless...
