(Single Review): Day 8(Day Late) of Black History Month: MTC Getting Educated “Stop In The Name of Love” by THE SUPREMES

On this day, February 8th, 1965, The Supremes recorded their legendary song “Stop In The Name of Love”.  In a time when African-Americans were struggling to get mainstream success, meaning the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the three ladies dominated the pop charts by reaching number one.  It also reached #38 on Billboard’s 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs Ever list.  It’s plain to see, The Supremes had a persona that captured imaginations and their harmonies were matchless for female groups in the Motown/soul world.  This song is the ultimate “hairbrush anthem” as you can’t help but sing this song in the shower or while you’re cleaning the house or getting ready for work.  This song should be on an all-time list for Black Music.
