Story about this misheard lyric by: Brandon Thompson

I heard this when searching on iTunes for Supremes tracks and came across this secret gem. I got to love it so much as it's so reminiscent of Baby Love and Where Did Our Love Go combined. I kept hearing this lyric and thinking "why would The Supremes talk about someone in the back of their car?" and of course I couldn't stop laughing when I found the original lyrics.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Reflections"
The Lyrics:
Through the mirror of my mind
Through the tears that I'm crying
Reflects a hurt I can't control
'Cause although you're gone I keep holding on
To the happy times Oh, when you were mine
Why:
"Reflections" was a #2 hit for the group in the fall of 1967. It also was the first single where Florence Ballard had been replaced by Cindy Birdsong as a backup singer (although Birdsong and fellow Supreme, Mary Wilson, actually didn't sing on the recording -- there was sessions singers instead, and Birdsong and Wilson would only be used from here until the group broke up and Diana went solo in 1970 for stage performances of the songs). "Reflections" also has a very interesting opening that is very much in tune with the times of 1967 being into psychedelica. It is uptempo with a good dance beat, but at the same time has again distressing to depressing lyrics, as Diana Ross is cast in the role of being a woman who has lost a lover and only remembers the happy times of old as though she is looking into a mirror (therefore the "Reflections" theme).

"The Happening"
The Lyrics:
I saw my dreams fall apart, when love walked away from my heart
And when you lose that precious love you need to guide you
Something happens inside you, the happening
Why:
A depressing lost love song with one of the most upbeat moods/tunes there is
