Happy birthday to Diana Ross


Just heard that Diana Ross is 65.

Question: Is that possible? I guess that time really does fly by!

Diana Ross is really 65........and we say happy birthday.

We have followed Diana Ross from The Supremes to her solo career.

The Supremes had a bunch of # 1 singles. In the late 1960's, they were one of the most consistent hit makers along with
The Beatles. We wrote a post about The Supremes last year: Remember The Supremes!

She is a great performer and artist.

Our first selecton is "Stop in the name of love" from The Supremes:

(Brian Holland/Lamont Dozier/Edward Holland, Jr.)

"Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Baby, baby I'm aware of where you go Each time you leave my door

I watch you walk down the street Knowing your other love you'll meet

But this time before you run to her Leaving me alone and hurt

(Think it over) After I've been good to you ?

(Think it over) After I've been sweet to you?

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Think it over Think it over

I've known of yourYour secluded nights I've even seen her Maybe once or twice

But is her sweet expression Worth more than my love and affection?

But this time before you leave my arms And rush of to her charms

(Think it over) Haven't I been good to you?

(Think it over) Haven't I been sweet to you?

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Think it over Think it over

I've tried so hard, hard to be patient Hoping you'd stop this infatuation

But each time you are together I'm so afraid I'll be losing you forever

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart

Baby, think it over Think it over, baby Ooh, think it over baby..."

The second selection is from the late 1980's. This is "Chain reaction" a tune written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb of The Bee Gees. It became one of Diana's biggest solo hits:

video

"You took a mystery and made me want it

You got a pedestal and put me on it

You made me love you out of feeling nothing

Something that you do And I was there and not dancing with anyone

You took a little, then you took me over

You set your mark on stealing my heart away

Crying, trying, anything for you

I'm in the middle of a chain reaction You give me all the after midnight action

I wanna get you where I can let you make all that love to me

I'm on a journey for the inspiration To anywhere and there ain't no salvation

I need you to get me nearer to you

So you can set me free

We talk about love, love, love We talk about love

We talk about love, love, love We talk about love

You make me tremble when your hand moves lower

You taste a little then you swallow slower

Nature has a way of yielding treasure

Pleasure made for you, oh You gotta plan, your future is on the run

Shine a light for the whole world over

You never find your love if you hide away

Crying, dying, all you gotta do is

Get in the middle of a chain reaction

You get a medal when you're lost in action

I wanna get your love all ready for the sweet sensation

Instant radiation You let me hold you for the first explosion

We get a picture of our love in motion

My arms will cover, my lips will smother you

With no more left to say

We talk about love, love, love We talk about love

You let me hold you for the first explosion

My arms will cover you

All you gotta do is get in the middle of a chain reaction

You get a medal when you're lost in action

Don't pass me by I wanna get your love all ready for the chain reaction ...."
