"My Guy" by Mary Wells.

OK, more 60's: This '64 Smokey Robinson composition was the biggest hit and signature song for a 19 year-old Detroit native who became Motown's first female star. It was also her last release on the Motown label. Background vocals by The Andantes. Topped the Pop and R&B charts and broke The Beatles' famous Top 5 monopoly in '64. A girl's total commitment to her man. Inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in '99. Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: Tony Peluso (1950-2010). Saw The Carpenters in '73 at the Academy of Music in Philly - one of my favorite concerts ever! Tony Peluso blew me away! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nooeMrCws-A
