THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
346-The Velvelettes-Needle In A Haystack.
1964-Has never charted in the UK.
Best Bit-At 1.15.Another song we can thank Northern Soul for.
It’s hard to believe that a song of this quality has never sold enough copy’s to reach the UK chart,although it did peak at Number 45 on Billboard giving the group their biggest success.
The song is very popular among the Northern Soul fraternity and can be found on numerous compilations.I personally have been playing the song for over 40 years and it is probably my most played and popular track that has never been a chart hit.
It wasn’t until I began compiling this list that i realised how many classic songs the late great Norman Whitfield(see also best songs 911-777-569- 533-480) has been involved with,he produced this and co-wrote it with another great Motown songwriter William Stevenson.
‘I’m tellin’ you girls,you’d better look before you leap still waters sometimes run very deep.’
