“My World Is Empty Without You”

October 28th Celebrates My World Is Empty Without You

Today on “Days to Remember” we celebrate how the female group called the Supremes recorded the song called, “My World is Empty Without You,” on October 28th 1965.

Like many Supremes songs, this is a tale of heartache with an up-tempo beat. Legendary Motown session musicians the Funk Brothers supplied the track for the song called, “My World is Empty Without You.”

On February 20th 1966, the Supremes performed “My World is Empty Without You” on the CBS-TV program ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ as the song climbing the billboard charts.

Who wrote the song called, “My World is Empty Without You,” for the Supremes?

Written and produced by Motown’s main production team of Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song’s slow tempo accompanies a somber lyric which delves into the feelings of depression 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, have ever heard the song?

Today’s YouTube presentation is brought to you by user name Bob Brun, of Ed Sullivan introducing the Supremes and their new song called, “My World Is Empty Without You,” as we celebrate the songs release to the public which happened on October 28th 1965.

I’ve always liked that song, I wonder why it didn’t make the billboards charts back then like their other songs.

In any case today isn’t about who made it or who didn’t it’s about the whimsical song making its debut to the public on October 28th 1965.
