Heatwave

Music by Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier

Originally Performed by Martha & The Vandellas

"Heat Wave" is a 1963 song written by the Holland–Dozier–Holland songwriting team. It was first made popular by the Motown vocal group Martha and the Vandellas. Released as a 45 rpm single on July 9, 1963, on the Motown subsidiary Gordy label, it hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B chart—where it stayed for four weeks—and peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was recorded 12 years later by rock vocalist Linda Ronstadt on her Platinum-selling 1975 album Prisoner in Disguise. Ronstadt's version of the song was released as a single in September 1975, reaching number 5 in Billboard, 4 in Cash Box, and 6 in Record World. In 2010, British musician Phil Collins spent a single week (number 28) on the Billboard Adult Contemporary listing with his retooling of the song—a smooth combination of both versions.

Various Arrangers : 60's Girl Groups

The poodle skirts and malt shops are long gone, but the golden era of the girl groups lives on in this fab collection of 60's top pop female harmony groups. The iconic 1960s hit "Dancing in the Street" by Martha & the Vandellas is on overdrive! A perfect show choir theme, this arrangement opens with a vocal build punctuated by horn punches and handclaps before exploding into the instantly recognized verse. The party atmosphere continues with a fun vocal stack before closing with the final powerful "call." The 1963 pop hit by the Crystals "Da Doo Ron Ron" is a sweet and sassy salute to the music of an earlier era! SSA groups of all ages will enjoy singing the easy triadic harmonies that define the genre.

Songlist: Da Doo Ron Ron, Be My Baby, One Fine Day, Heatwave, Sweet Talkin' Guy - Music Of The Chiffons (Medley), Dancing in the Street
