Song of the day for June 19, 2024

1 min read

I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) by The Four Tops is today’s featured song.

On this day in 1965, The Four Tops scored their first No.1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with the enduring classic, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch).” Penned by Motown’s in-house songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland – and led by singer Levi Stubbs – the upbeat tune would later be named the second-biggest single of 1965 by Billboard and the biggest R&B hit of the year, after a nine-week stay at the top of that chart. In the UK, “I Can’t Help Myself” became the legendary group’s first Top 40 hit, while decades later, Rolling Stone included the track on their 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list.
