It Should Have Been Me (Norman Whitfield song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"It Should Have Been Me" is a 1963 song written by William "Mickey" Stevenson and Norman Whitfield for Kim Weston.[1] It has been performed by Yvonne Fair, Gladys Knight & the Pips and Adeva among others. Knight's version peaked at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1968.[2] Fair had her only hit single with her recording of the song in 1976, reaching number 5 in the UK,[3] number 85 in the US[4] and number 10 in Australia.[5]

The song begins:

"I saw my love walking down the aisle
And as he passed me by, he turned to me and gave me a smile"

Critical reception

Alex Henderson from AllMusic stated that "she interprets the Gladys Knight & the Pips hit "It Should Have Been Me" with equally impressive results."[7] Larry Flick from Billboard commented, "Dance chanteuse previews her sophomore effort, "Love & Lust", with an attitudinal houser. Highly stylized, assertive vocals are countered by a physical bass line and a rousing gospel-spiced undercurrent. Demands immediate club approval—not to mention attention at crossover and urban radio."[8]
