Will you still love me tomorrow? Finally a response!

I just stumbled upon a unique bit of history on YouTube. A user has submitted a video recording and an explanation about the first male Motown group The Satintones who had their song, “Tomorrow and Always” pulled in the early 60’s due to copyright issues.

The Satintones probably thought they had a really good idea when they responded to The Shirelles “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” with their recorded version “Tomorrow and Always”. The only problem with that though, was that the songs are very similar. Actually The Satintones version is too similar to the original, written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. I can see why the song was pulled. Some of the words are different and they changed the title to “Tomorrow and Always”, but the melody is exactly the same.

Either way, here is a video link to The Shirelles “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” and the rare recording of The Satintones response, “Tomorrow and Always”.

Answer records – or response records were big in the 60’s and continue to be recorded today. Most aren’t as obvious as “Tomorrow and Always” and the subject makes for good music trivia. Here is a list of Answer Records on Soul of the Net that will keep you busy for awhile. There is a difference between a cover song and a response song, so for some this could get confusing.

Anyway, here are two more recent, more explicit response songs by Eamon and Frankee that came out in 2004. Not as gracious as some of the other examples throughout the years!

Eamon’s F*** It (I Don’t Want You Back)
Frankee’s response: “F*** You Right Back
