June 22, 2016 Records of the Day

Contours-Do-You-Love-MeContours Funny“Do You Love Me” was a song written by Barry Gordy for the Temptations. But when the Temptations were late for a recording session, Gordy gave it the Contours to record. They had a hit with it in 1962 and, thanks to the movie “Dirty Dancing,” it became a smash again in 1988. The original “Do You Love Me,” released on Gordy records, is worth no more than $25.00 but a previous single “Funny” by the Contours, released in 1961 on Motown records, is worth up to $500.00 today.
