Need help trying to remember a song

Post by geoff85 »

I heard a Carole King song a while back on youtube sung by a girl group I wanna say Shirelles Crystals or Chiffons.I get a vibe like Oh no not my baby but even prettier. It has a beautiful melody but I cant remember anything about it. Its not a famous song at all so chances of me running into it again is so unlikely. All I remember was it was a pretty song. Help help help.

Guys i solved it its "some of your lovin". Im not even sure which group sings it originally. I wasnt around in the 60s and i hear different opinions ex. honeybees and or crystals. Here it goes. This has to be one of my fave Goffin/King.

Blue you posted the wrong link. I was aware Dusty had a version but I think the girl group version is even superior to hers and that says alot.

Dusty is a legend of legends but something about the lush harmonies of those girls really does it for me!!!!!

Speaking of Honeybees ran into this classic I havent heard since I was a kid when my folks would play the oldies.

I always thought it was the Supremes lol sounds like Holland Dozier knockoff but its a Goffin/King classic.

Once again I solved my own riddle. I hate when this happens.

The song is called Remember me by the Earls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL_gRZeqhjY. Its a Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil song.
There is also a Chiffon version both groups have Bronx roots just like me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnRa002Fkds
