January 23rd in Barrington History

Welcome to This Day in Barrington History

Welcome to January 23rd and Day 23 of 365 in Barrington, Illinois! You’ll find our stories of the day – past, present & future (events) – right here on today’s DailyPage.

Because every day has its own rhythm, we’re sharing a song of the day here at 365Barrington.com.

On this day, January 23rd in 1988, The California Raisins’ Motown Classic “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” peaks at #84 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for Motown Records, the song was first recorded by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles in 1966, released a single by Gladys Knight and the Pips in 1967 followed by Marvin Gaye’s version in 1968. Remember when “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” got new life in 1987, when it was used in commercials for California Raisins, with claymation raisins performing the song?


Song of the Day

In addition to boosting raisin sales, the California Raisins became an ’80s fad and were the most popular Halloween costume that year.

Because I’m on sort of a Creedence Clearwater Revival kick, I thought I’d also share their version, first recorded for their 1970 album, Cosmo’s Factory, ultimately reaching 43 on Billboard’s chart. I could listen to this version on repeat!
