Music Memory-More Love

Kim Carnes’ version of More Love peaked at number ten on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1980. The song was written by Smokey Robinson to his wife Claudette Rogers Robinson who sadly had eight miscarriages . Claudette was part of the Smokey Robinson and the Miracles group and toured with them since 1957. She felt her touring with the band contributed to the miscarriages. Smokey wrote the song to tell her she did not let him down. She never toured with the band again but she did eventually have two healthy children, Barry named after Motown’s founder Barry Gordon and a girl named Tamla named after the Motown record label. Smokey’s version of More Love peaked at 23 on Billboard in 1967.
