“DIANA ROSS AND THE SUPREMES – MY WORLD IS EMPTY WITHOUT YOU”

“My World Is Empty Without You” is a 1965 song recorded and released as a single by The Supremes for the Motown label.

Overview
Written and produced by Motown’s main production team of Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song’s fast tempo accompanies a somber lyric which delves into the feelings of depression which can set in after a breakup; instrumentally, this is showcased with a gothic and dramatic musical arrangement, prominently featuring Earl Van Dyke’s Hammond organ shrilly configured to sound like a liturgical pipe organ, in tow with the trend of baroque pop during the mid-1960s.

“My World Is Empty Without You” was one of the few songs written by the team for The Supremes that didn’t go to number one, peaking at number five on the US pop chart for two weeks in February 1966[1] and at number 10 on the R&B chart; the single failed to chart on the UK Singles Chart. The group performed the song on the CBS hit variety program The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday, February 20, 1966.[2]

    I just love the ghostly vocals in this song. You really get the essence of Diana in this one.

    You know, that is s0 Jacob! And, Thank you for your comment… The arrangement, (It resonates so well) I’m sure was for Diana’s voice to standout over her background. All and all, They are all beautiful in song and style!!!
