Martha & The Vandellas – Heatwave (1963)


Martha & The Vandellas

An ode to sunnier climes, Martha & The Vandella’s standout single hit the charts in the summer of 1963. Martha Reeves sings about some guy who gives her a fever, but the real heat is the early example of Motown’s Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting genius and the high-energy R&B beat that they brought to bear. Have a great weekend.
