BAD LYRICS RUINED FLORENCE BALLARD'S SOLO CAREER

After being let go from The Supremes, Florence "Flo" Ballard signed a record deal with ABC Records, and released two singles:  "Love Ain't Love" was great, but it was the other single that raised my eyebrow multiple times.  The chorus was OK but the verses are hard to handle, and my only opinion is this:

"WHO THE HELL WROTE THE LYRICS?!?"

and

"WTF WERE YOU GUYS THINKING, ANYWAY?!?"

"It Doesn't Matter How I Say It (It's What I Say That Matters)" has a cute title but the lyrics are vile, even by MY standards! LOL

Several other cuts from her then-unreleased solo LP would have been much better choices as a single release.  "It Doesn't Matter How I Say It" probably killed it for her.
