Band of Gold

"Band of Gold" was a big hit for Freda Payne in 1970. As an 11-year-old kid, I thought it was extremely tragic that a marriage could fall apart so quickly, but loved the way she conveyed the feeling. Motown did a lot of that while getting us to dance at the same time. What exactly went wrong is left a mystery, probably to make it more relatable. Yeah that worked, too.
