Song of the Day – “Beechwood 4-5789” – The Marvelettes

Yesterday was Berry Gordy’s 85th birthday. Regardless of how he treated his artists, he did manage to give us Motown, for which we are eternally grateful.

This early Marvelettes hit was co-written by Marvin Gaye, and he plays drums on the track.
