Martha & The Vandellas - Live Wire

"Live Wire" is a 1964 dance single released by Motown girl group Martha and the Vandellas. The song was produced by Holland–Dozier–Holland under the same gospel-pop confection of their earlier hit singles "(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave" and "Quicksand". The song explained why the narrator can't come up with words to tell her lover that she was through with him because when she looks at him, she feels that he is "like a bolt of lightning" and that he's a "live wire". The song failed to hit the Top 40 of the pop chart and reached #11 on Cashbox's R&B singles chart.
