Martha And The Vandellas - Dancing In The Street

Happy 70th to Martha Reeves of Martha And The Vandellas fame. Their signature song is the classic "Dancing In The Street", written by Marvin Gaye, William "Mickey" Stevenson and Ivy Joe Hunter. It's one of the all-time most popular, not to mention best, summer songs, having been covered by many but never bettered. This is Motown soul at its very, very best, as joyful an fun as pop music can ever become. Why Mick Jagger and David Bowie released their cover version in 1985 remains one of the greatest mysteries in pop history.

Watch and listen
