Single Serving: Aretha Franklin – You Keep Me Hangin' On (The Supremes Cover)Leave a Comment
“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was originally recorded in 1966 by the Supremes and released by Motown. The track was written by songwriting super team Holland-Dozier-Holland, the Motown songwriting and production team responsible for countless number one hit singles including “It’s The Same Old Song,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” and “Stop In the Name of Love.”
“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” has been covered by a number of artists ranging from Reba McEntire to Kim Wilde, but the only version to hold a candle to the original (in my opinion) is Aretha Franklin’s take on it. This version is an outtake released on her 2007 compilation titled Rare & Unreleased Recordings From the Golden Reign of the Queen of Soul.
