Once Upon a Time
Mary Wells feat. Marvin Gaye Lyrics

Once upon a time I almost lost my mind
I was lonely, so lonely
Once upon a time
Hoping every day things would go my way
Then you came into my life
Now everything is fine
I never knew what love could do till I met you
Now everything is oh so cozy
Now my skies are blue all because of you
I'm so glad; I was lonely
Once upon a time

Two great talents who we still miss to this very day - Marvin Gaye & Mary Wells. What power they had in their songs, & this gem is proof. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–

Old fashioned sweet romance... such beautiful, heart-wrenching voices...

May 2, 1964 - 56 Years Ago Today: Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells debuted at No. 73 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with their single, "Once Upon A Time." This was the B-side to their single "What's The Matter With You Baby" which ironically debuted two weeks following the B-side. "Once Upon A Time" was written by Dave Hamilton, Clarence Paul and William Stevenson and was Gaye's 8th chart entry and it became his 6th Top 30 when it peaked at No. 19 on June 6, 1964. This was Wells' 12th chart entry and it became her 11th Top 40. [05/02/2020]

I love this song, was not born when it was released. It's what you hope you can sing to yourself one day. I used to play it for God (felt empty and alone until I found a way to connect with the Creator).

Nidia Taylor
