On November 21, 1960 "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" charted Pop and in two weeks reached the top spot, the first record by a black female group to hit the top spot.
Another great song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" was recorded by the Shirelles and rose to number 1 on the billboard hot 100 in 1961. It was ranked among Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time at #125. The song was used on the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack from 1987.
I think the most current version was recently recorded by Amy Winehouse but the list of people who covered this tune is long and varied: Dusty Springfield, Mike Berry, Cher, The Four Seasons, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Roberta Flack, Dave Mason, Dionne Warwick, Neil Diamond, The Bee Gees, Lauryn Hill...just to name a few.
And Now we have my fabulous version, which, like most of my covers, is retro and meant to evoke the sound of another era. I don't know why I keep arranging these tunes as if I'm living in the fifties or sixties....maybe it's just nostalgia. Maybe I haven't grown out of it yet and maybe I never will. But there you have it...Have a listen and I hope you enjoy it. As Always best heard through ipod earplugs.
