Mary Wells – “My Guy” (1964)

October 20, 2008 at 7:26 am (Motown)

“The First Lady of Motown” – this great Smokey Robinson-written & produced classic came out in 1964 and shot straight to the top. Motown’s first female star had a few other hits with Motown, but this was her biggest. She left Motown soon after this song came out, hoping to make more money elsewhere, as well as establish a movie career, but due to health problems, among other things, it never worked out for her, unfortunately. Wells passed away in 1992 at the age of 49 due to cancer.
