Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – Way over there

The most familiar incarnation of The Miracles....

Way Over There” is a 1960 Motown soul song and single, written by William “Smokey” Robinson, produced by Berry Gordy, and first performed by The Miracles (credited as “The Miracles featuring Bill ‘Smokey’ Robinson”) for the Tamla (Motown) label. It was one of The Miracles’ earliest charting singles, reaching #94 on the Billboard Pop chart. Motown president Berry Gordy, Jr. had The Miracles record the song several times during its chart run. The first version had minimal orchestration. The second version added strings, and this is the version played by most oldies stations today.
