The mountain Marvin GayeTammi Terrell, and later Diana Ross, sang about in “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” was NOT inspired by a mountain at all … according to the legend who wrote it.

Valerie Simpson co-penned the 1967 hit song for Motown offshoot Tamla Records. Marvin and Tammi went Top 20 with it, and Diana Ross made it to #1 in 1970. So, when we got Valerie in NYC … we had to know what she had in mind when she came up with the classic lyrics.

Prepare to have your mind blown … ’cause Valerie says it’s got nothing to do with the Rockies, the Alps or Mt. Everest. No wind, no rain or winter’s cold can stop us … from listening to the song.

But damn, we really wanted a mountain.
