Win a $25 gift certificate from The Spa Downtown – Their First Birthday Party is TONIGHT! 6-9 at 440 N. Main on the Downtown Mall. Music, food tours and FREE spa services…here’s the song that can win it for you.
When this song got to the top, the group became the first artists of the rock era to have their first three chart releases reach number one.It listed its writing and production credits as “The Corporation” rather than give the actual people individual credit. That was most likely due to the bitterness involved in the recent split with superstar writers and producers Holland Dozier Holland. Barry Gordy, Jr. didn’t want anybody getting too “big for their britches” although the itty bitty lead singer in question was getting bigger by the hit…Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five had the number one spot on this day in 1970.
