My oldest sister used to make our family these amazing mixtapes she called Happy Car Music for our many cross-country drives. "I'll Be There" by the Jackson 5 was on Happy Car Music VI and I honestly don't know if I've ever loved a song more. I distinctly remember begging my Mom to rewind the tape over and over and over so I could keep hearing it, to the point where she had to put her foot down one day and hid the cassette from me.
This song has become the standard to which I hold all love in my life.
Here are the boys, performing my jam on Diana! in 1971. (PS How perfect does Diana Ross look.)
Happy Sunday kiddos.
