5 YEAR REWIND: DIONNE WARWICK



(As part of our 5th year anniversary, we’re revisiting 20 key songs. This post was originally published on October 26, 2005).

Dionne Warwick: You’re Gonna Need Me
From Just Being Myself (Warner Bros, 1973)

“This Dionne Warwick is one of the most amazing songs I’ve heard in a long, long, long time. I put it on repeat and literally was listening to it over and over for hours. I was trying to figure out how to articulate just what makes it so perfect – Holland-Dozier’s amazing arrangement, Dionne’s piercing vocals – but really, you just know it’s that good when you listen to it. It’s catapulted to the very top of my “favorite soul songs of all time.” I just can’t believe I never heard it until recently (thanks HHH for putting me up on it).”

(2009 update + preemptive comment – yes, I know Dilla and Just Blaze and others have sampled it.)
