Funny, TH's line about "no intentions of being a homewrecker" had me thinking vauguely of a song that had a "breaking up our happy home" reference, but I just couldn't solve it.
Yes “homewrecker” looked useful. But then I had an image of Miley Cyrus hanging off a giant ball. Assumed it was not that song but I couldn’t un-think it!

You guys really want to work me hard, dont'cha? What is there left - one, is it? Luckily I have up to round 12 prepared.
One more to go, TH. I'm just pleased we're still in the match at this stage. "Know what I mean, 'arry".

I aurally captured it via the plant of premature raisins. I mean “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”. I always assumed Marvin Gaye wrote it, but just saw that it was written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong.

Survived another round!

Nope, nor did he record the original version. That honor goes to Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Gladys Knight and the Pips also had a big hit with this before Gaye's version came out. Not as smooth as Gaye's version and probably the rockingest song the Pips ever did.

Okay, thanks RS.
Yeah that Motown sound was good.

I had grape hopes that Saulaac would solve Song 5.

Also love Creedence Clearwater Revival's version of that tune.

Harold Melvin/Teddy's original is a killer. Amazing voice.

Yes I sought out the original after hearing Mick's version. I think the Bluenotes one is superior. Similar to how when they had a hit with "Every Time We Say Goodbye" I went looking for Ella's version, and it slays.
