The song called “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me,” was released in November of 1968. Within about two months, the song shot up to #2 on the American Billboard’s Top 100 Charts; and also peaked #3 on UK’s single charts. It’s hard to believe that a song that was once popular as it was, is virtually unheard of by most, if not all the current generation of music lovers. This song was HUGE, not just because it was a hit, but because the song was sung by two of the biggest acts under the Motown label. This was one of my very favorite songs growing up. The song was written by¬†Kenneth Gamble and Jerry Ross, and was originally recorded in 1966, under Mercury Records by Dee Dee Warwick, Dionne Warwick’s sister, and cousin of the late Whitney Houston. Dee Dee’s recording of the song peaked at #13 on the R&B charts.
