A MOTOWN SNAPSHOT FLASHBACK: MIRACLES, 1962!

September 18th, 2017

YOU’VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME,” was a song written and composed by Smokey Robinson of the Miracles. The single became the 10th single the Motown group released to hit the Billboard Hot 100, having peaked #8 in February 1963. The single also hit the #1 position on the U.S. R&B chart that year. In 1963, the Beatles recorded their cover-version of the Smokey Robinson composition. Their Motown-titled song cover was released as an album track, one of three Motown compositions that was included in their U.S. 1964 Capitol Records LP, ‘The Beatles Second Album.’
