Will You Love Me Tomorrow - The Shirelles

Will You Love Me Tomorrow

The Shirelles
oldies 60s motown female vocalists soul


"Will You Love Me Tomorrow" is the title of a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. King used the same chord progression as "Oh! Carol", a song written about her by ex-boyfriend Neil Sedaka. It has been recorded by many different artists and was ranked among Rolling Stone 's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time at #125. The song is notable for being the first song to reach #1 in the US by an all-girl group. At Carole King's home, in the Laurel Canyon section of Los Angeles, her doorbell rang the title of the song. The Shirelles released their version as Scepter single 1211, with "Boys" on the B-side. The single's first pressing was simply "Tomorrow" then lengthened later. When first presented with the song, lead singer Shirley Owens (later known as Shirley Alston-Reeves) did not want to record it, because she thought it was "too country." She relented after a string arrangement was added. In 1961, the song went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. However, Owens recalled on Jim Parsons' syndicated oldies radio program, Shake Rattle Showtime, that some radio stations had banned the record because they had felt the lyrics were too sexually charged. This version of the song is currently ranked as the 101st greatest song of all time, as well as the best song of 1960, by Acclaimed Music.[1]


The Shirelles were an influential American girl group in the early 1960s, and they were the very first girl group to have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. The members of the quartet were Shirley Owens (who was the lead singer for the most part), Doris Coley, Beverly Lee, and Addie "Micki" Harris. The quartet formed in New Jersey in 1958, and went on to release a string of hits including "Baby It's You", "Mama Said", and the #1 Pop hits "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and "Soldier Boy.

Will You Love Me Tomorrow - The Shirelles

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But, will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure,
Or, just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You said that I'm the only one
But, will my heart be broken?
When the night (when the night)
Meets the morning (meets the morning) sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?

[Instrumental]

So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
