"Someday We'll Be Together" is an interesting song. It was the last No.1 song of the Sixties (and the first of the Seventies). Of course it is also the last Supremes hit and the last of their 12 No. 1 Billboard hits. Unfortunately, it's not really a Supremes record at all. Berry Gordy wanted the group to go out with a bang, in order to launch Diana's solo career. He pulled out all the stops with "Someday", but never even invited Mary Wilson to the recording session. Cindy Birdsong may have had some minor contribution. I never really cared for the song.

Of all their hits, my favorite was "I Hear A Symphony". Runner-Ups: "You Can't Hurry Love" and the now-underplayed "The Happening". But in the public's mind they will always be identified with "Stop! In The Name Of Love" because of that choreographed move.

They had something like 13 #1 hits on Billboard charts. I found them fresh and talente, which is why they still stand as the top Girl Group of all time. (I had to look up that part)

A long line of girl groups have found success on the Billboard charts, with Motown's brightest stars generating hits as a collective a half-century ago, and artists like Spice Girls and Destiny's Child making their mark in the 1990's and 2000's, respectively. Check out Billboard's list of the Top 10 girl groups of all time, and see if your favorite female group made the cut.

R61 Mary has stated publicly that even if she had been asked, she wouldn't have taken the lead. Her confidence was low at the time. It was only after Jean & Lynda left that she insisted that she split the leads with new hire Scherrie Payne because with all the lineup changes of the past few years she felt she couldn't count in any of the members besides herself staying. The final two albums that followed had the two and final Supreme, Susaye Green, trading off leads and they are worth seeking out. Most of the tracks are great. Motown just didn't bother promoting them.

R12 Someday We'll Be Together was never intended to be a Supremes track. It was already in the can as a Diana solo number but got suggested to Gordy as a potential farewell Supremes 45 when he was pissed that he couldn't pull Diana out of the group when their previous single, No Matter What Sign You Are, a tune Berry wrote, stiffed at #31. Shelly Berger, the group's manager suggested it. Gordy balked saying they couldn't do it. It wasn't a Supremes record. Shelly's response was "It is if we tell everyone it is." He relented and the second it exploded up the chart Motown announced Diana's departure.

Fun fact - after Florence was dismissed from the group. Mary and Cindy appeared on none of the singles except The Temptations duets until Jean Terrell arrived. In house background singers, The Andantes, were used instead. Mary & Cindy did show up on some album tracks though.

Extra fun fact - the last song Diana recorded as a Supreme with Mary & Cindy in 1969 was the Inside Daisy Clover tune "You're Gonna Hear From Me." Other than about ninety seconds onstage together at the Motown 25 special and a later failed attempt to "Return To Love" that ended with seventies Supremes touring with Ross instead - that title didn't come true...

Yes it was a sad affair after Diana left, R76, but only because Barry was putting so much of Motown's limited resources into his pet project, Diane's solo career.

Actually, the early 70's were some of the best for Motown creatively and popularly. Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder had huge mega-hits. New writers like Frank Wilson, combined with existing writers like Norman Whitfield continued to churn out hits. Unfortunately, there was limited money for promotion, and most of it went to Diana or Marvin and Stevie. Other acts like the Four Tops, The Spinners, The Isley Brothers, and Gladys Knight and the Pips felt the economic pinch and eventually left Motown for labels that would not give them such short shrift. And of the four groups I cited, their post Motown careers were far more successful.

I used to do that with my Supremes (and Ronettes, and Crystals, and Lesley Gore) 45s as a boy. "Baby Love" drove my father particularly insane, he shared with me many times later in life. My mother could not take "Be My Baby" anymore. It was all I played, overandoverandover, Kennedy Assassination Weekend.

This would have been one of those songs.

I love this Hollywood Palace performance of "Reflections." A bit too much makeup on Diana, but she and the girls deliver a stellar rendition of their hit song.

In August 1967, "Reflections" peaked at N° 2 in the USA single charts ( 11 weeks ) and USA radio,at N° 2 in CANADA ( 9 weeks), N° 3 in HOLLAND ( 16 weeks), N...

God - reminds me.

In the 70s when I was a kiddie, after my mother had moved out of our house - I discovered all of her 45s from the 60s and there were tons of Supremes.

I thought God the music was so much better then. Got me interested in the 60s. I went to the library and asked for a book about the 60s, I was only 10 and the librarian said "They haven't been written yet".

To the experts out there: Were the background vocals in R112 pre-recorded by The Andantes? I'm pretty sure Diana is singing live, but those background vocals sound rather too strong to be Mary and Cindy's voices.

In regards to interviews, here's a rare one in which all three girls get to talk. Shortly thereafter, only Diana would be permitted to answer questions during interviews, as per Berry Gordy's mandate.

Martha resented all the Motown focus on Diana as well. I've heard her refer to her as Ross.

R89, Diana was at Flo's funeral service. She made a grand entrance accompanied by two bodyguards, sat up front with Flo's family, and, taking Mary's hand, gave an impromptu plea about needing a moment of silence for Flo, after which "Someday, We'll Be Together" began to play-- ironic since neither Flo nor Mary sang on that record. Then, when everybody headed to the cemetery and away from the cameras, Diana was absent. She apparently had done her part, to show everybody just who was the star of this show.

It was 1976 and ousted Supremes member Florence Ballard had tragically died after years of poverty and despair. Writer Mark Bego was at the funeral,...

Nobody really liked Diana, in fact she was pretty much loathed, the list of reasons why is a long one. She's lucky her pussy had just the scent Berry was looking for.

All those ladies loathed Diana because, once she became Berry's favorite, she would lord it over the other girls and do dastardly things to show them up. On one earlier road tour, the Supremes were one of the opening acts on a line-up that included Martha Reeves & the Vandellas. Diana got wind of where Martha & Co. got their gorgeous new gowns, so she ordered similar gowns for herself, Mary, and Flo and wore them onstage. Martha and her girls were livid and chased the Supremes backstage threatening a beat down, but Diana got a hold Berry Gordy, who told Martha to cool it. Martha and her girls were forced to wear their stale old gowns.

At another concert revue that had both the Supremes and Gladys Knight & the Pips, Diana got a preview of Gladys & Co. during rehearsals, called Bery Gordy, and had them removed from the lineup.

I LOVE The Supremes and Diana is fabulous out front but watching these videos made me realize for the first time how little actual singing Mary, Flo and Cindy are asked to contribute. No wonder they were frustrated.

Are you sure L-O-V-E is the name of this game?

Recorded in Dec 1968 with The Andantes, this Smokey Robinson written and produced track remained in the can until 1986, when it was released on the Supremes ...
