Song of the Day: The Spinners, “Could It Be I’m Fallin’ In Love”

Billy Henderson of the R&B vocal group The Spinners (in the UK, The Detroit Spinners) was born on this day in 1939. They had been together since 1954 but hadn’t had a hit record until they signed with Atlantic Records in 1972 and started working with producer and songwriter Thom Bell. “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love” was the followup single to “I’ll Be Around” and also reached #1 on the R&B chart as well as #4 on the Hot 100 and #11 in the UK. This was taped from the late-night music show The Midnight Special in 1973.

  1. I’ve always liked this song. Great percussive beat to it. So many memories of hearing this playing on the radio. Midnight Special was one of my favorite shows of all time. Rarely missed it.

    1. Friday nights in Chicago, we’d have The Midnight Special followed by Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert. And if ABC had In Concert on that Friday, I was in heaven…


    1. Half the show was the clothes and the dance moves. Did you watch Soul Train? I swear there were as many White kids as Black kids watching it…
