Cusp Song of the Day: How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)

From Chapter 5: Three artists had hits with Holland-Dozier-Holland's perennial "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)": Marvin Gaye in 1964-65 (number 6), Jr. Walker & The All Stars in 1966 (number 18) and James Taylor in 1975 (number 5). Taylor included it on his Gorilla album that summer. Taylor's then-wife Carly Simon sings harmony.

After rejecting "Summer Madness" because it doesn't fit her mood, Karen changes the radio station and hits "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)." Somehow this is even worse, since she's questioning how she feels about Patrick, who sits beside her on the back seat, waiting for her to pick the soundtrack they will make out to. She thinks, "No, not the message I want." She punches again, finally settling on the third song.

Check back tomorrow to find out what song finally met Karen's high standards for an apathetic make-out session.
