#6 – 1966: My World Is Empty Without You – The Supremes

“‘My World Is Empty Without You’ is a 1965 song recorded and released as a single by The Supremes for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown’s main production team of Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song’s fast tempo accompanies a somber lyric which delves into the feelings of depression which can set in after a breakup; instrumentally, this is showcased with a gothic and dramatic musical arrangement, prominently featuring Earl Van Dyke‘s Hammond organ shrilly configured to sound like a liturgical pipe organ, in tow with the trend of baroque pop during the mid-1960s. …”
