Scott Soriano has gone into detail about this 45 on his very fine Crud Crud blog, but at the risk of redundancy, I, too, am going to rave about it. I recently bought a lot of 60s 45s from Bill Nadolny in Conneticut (a garage rock collector legend, btw) and found this little piece among the rubble. The plug side is a version of "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," which is notable because this record is produced by Carole King herself (on her own label, according to Crud Crud).
But it's "You Go On" that holds your attention most. Starting off with a harpsichord, then going into full-blown guitar, piano and drums motif, the record features dreamy chick vocals, haunting harmonies and a waltz tempo. What I really like most about this record is its rather dark feel. It feels as if it were sung and performed by ghosts. Uh-oh, here's that word again rearing its ugly head: "haunting."
I mean, how else better to describe it? This is probably one of the more unusual records to be featured on this blog, as it's not the normal wild, crazy dance record, or whatever. But sometimes a good pop record can really glue you to it, as this one does. Should you find it, you'll be treating yourself to a terrific B-side. In the meantime, I recommend you read Crud Crud's entry on it for more detailed info. Me, I'm too busy playing my copy over and over and over. It really is that seductive.
This is the one that should've been the plug side. Ah well, consider it another great song buried as a B. But track it down, it's worth it if you're into girl groups and just a great pop song. I'm rambling now, so I'll stop.
