CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME
“…You made a promise
that we would never part,
Then you turned around
& you broke my little heart.
Now you’re standing there
saying ‘I do’,
holding hands with someone new...”
Motown staffers Norman Whitfield and William "Mickey" Stevenson wrote the powerful soul song "It Should Have Been Me". It was recorded by 3 of the label's acts. The 1st version was by Kim Weston. In 1968, Gladys Knight & The Pips released a remake. Yvonne Fair issued her cover in 1976.
The song involves a woman who attends a wedding, looking on as her ex exchanges vows with the woman who has replaced her.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
