Songwriter Lamont Dozier who co-wrote hits for the Supremes and Four Tops has died

Earlier this year the Library of Congress named Holland-Dozier-Holland's "Reach Out, I'll Be There," recorded by The Four Tops in 1966, to its National Recording Registry.

Lamont Dozier "wanted to write 'a journey of emotions with sustained tension, like a bolero,'" according to The Library of Congress. "To achieve that, he 'alternated the keys, from a minor, Russian feel in the verse to a major, gospel feel in the chorus.' "Dozier parted ways with the Holland brothers in the early 1970s but his creative output continued over the next several decades. He released a solo album and penned songs for Alison Moyet, Simply Red and Phil Collins.

Legendary Motown Songwriter Lamont Dozier Dies at 81

“It all starts with personalities, with people digging each other, as they used to say,” Dozier told Variety in 2015 when the trio received their star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. “There’s something true about working with the same people, even if it’s for a short time. Usually, the ones that are successful, they have a 10-year span, and then everybody tends to want to do their own thing. Very few stay together — I guess the Stones, and a few others. But eventually, after 10 years, everyone wants to do something different.”

Songwriter der Supremes: Motown-Grösse Lamont Dozier stirbt mit 81

Von der Mitte der 60er Jahre an brachte Dozier zusammen mit den Brüdern Brian und Eddie Holland immer neue Songs in die Charts. Die drei Songwriter erreichten Dutzende Top-40-Platzierungen, darunter eine Reihe von Top-10-Hits, die selbst den Beatles Konkurrenz machten. (…) In einem 2019 veröffentlichten Interview der Zeitung "Detroit Free Press" sagte Dozier, dass er keine Noten lesen könne: "Ich habe alles nach Gehör und Gefühl gemacht, als ich mich ans Klavier gesetzt habe. Ich danke Gott für die Akkorde und Melodien und alles, was ich hineingesteckt habe. Glauben Sie mir – es war eine Menge harter Arbeit, auf dieses Klavier zu hämmern, um einen Song zu schreiben und ihn obendrein zu einem Hit zu machen."
