Retro Music 28

My 12 year-old self would never forgive me if I didn’t include this 1964 Motown hit from one of their most successful groups.

Another songwriting success for the talented trio of Holland, Dozier, Holland.

Baby, baby, baby don’t leave me
Ooh, please don’t leave me all by myself
I’ve got this burning, burning, yearning feelin’ inside me
Ooh, deep inside me and it hurts so bad
You came into my heart (baby, baby) so tenderly
With a burning love (baby, baby)
That stings like a bee (baby, baby)
Now that I surrender (baby, baby) so helplessly
You now want to leave (baby, baby)
Ooh, you wanna leave me (baby, baby)
Ooh (baby, baby)
Baby, baby, where did our love go?
Ooh, don’t you want me?
Don’t you want me no more (baby, baby)?
Ooh, baby
Baby, baby, where did our love go?
And all your promises of a love forevermore!
I’ve got this burning, burning, yearning feelin’ inside me
Ooh, deep inside me, and it hurts so bad
Before you won my heart (baby, baby)
You were a perfect guy
But now that you got me
You wanna leave me behind (baby, baby)
Ooh, baby
Baby, baby, baby don’t leave me
Ooh, please don’t leave me all by myself (baby, baby)
Ooh baby, baby, baby

  1. Young people who view these old videos must think how corny everyone looked! Diana Ross was one of our frequent travellers at JFK. We had a whole department of “Special Services” reps that ran around after such people. God forbid they should have to speak to one of the low-lifes. Celebrities like Ms Ross were very successful and I am sure the fans could be a nuisance, so I get that. What used to really get up my nose was that many of them expected a free upgrade or a waiver of excess charges which the average poor slob had to pay (unless I checked them in). There were others who were very humble and were happy to talk to us. I once asked Anthony Hopkins how such a nice man could play such an evil character (Hannibal Lecter). He laughed. I guess it was a compliment to his abilities.

      1. It is always interesting to see how people really look and act! I was never impressed just because they were celebrities. I had Oprah Winfrey on a cancelled Concorde flight but she was delighted to have an excuse not to go to a wedding in Italy…with the 40 people she was taking along!

    1. My dad worked in the record business from 1959, so I learned about the pop business from a young age. I bought some records with my pocket money, but he also ‘acquired’ many others for me.
      Best wishes, Pete.
