American Top 40 Flashback - The Miracles
For some odd reason, I remember exactly where I was when I heard this song for the first time. It was December 7, 1975 and my dad and I were driving to Candlestick Park in San Francisco for a 49ers game. Another example of the strange things that I retain in my memory banks - just don't ask me what I ate for lunch yesterday.
This was probably the only notable moment for the non-Smokey version of the Miracles, but it was a great one. "Love Machine," the #1 song in the country this week in 1976.
