From Motown Legends: Jackson 5 - Never Can Say Goodbye and 39 other releases

“Never Can Say Goodbye” is a song written by Clifton Davis and originally recorded by The Jackson 5. Released as a single in 1971, it was one of the group’s most successful songs. The song has been covered numerous times, most notably in 1971 by soul singer Isaac Hayes, in 1974 by disco diva Gloria Gaynor, and in 1987 by gay Hi-NRG/dance-pop group The Communards.

The recording features 12-year-old Michael Jackson singing a serious song about a love, with accompaniment from his brothers. Although such a record was unusual for a teenage group, “Never Can Say Goodbye” was a number-two hit on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and a number-one hit on the Billboard Black Singles chart in the United States. In the United Kingdom, it reached number thirty-three on the UK Singles Chart.
