Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, "Shop Around" (1960)

This was the original, iconic song
but what many don鈥檛 know is that it prompted an "answer" song in 1961 by an obscure Motown artist named Debbie Dean
("Don鈥檛 Let Him Shop Around")
She may have other songs, but I admit I鈥檓 not familiar with them. 馃槓

The original song was a big hit, of course, and made it to #1 on the US R&B chart and #2 on the US pop chart.

Dean's response song only made it to #92 on the US pop chart. Hard to understand why it didn't do better.

These are both new to me. I love it!

I'm trying to imagine Smokie and company coming up with another song in rebuttal to the rebuttal!
@DrWatson You Better shop Around is new to you? Where have you BEEN?
@DrWatson They could title it "The Lemon Law"
We play Debbie at our wedding?
