I know it's really, really stereotypically gay to say so - and it is one of the ultimate drag queen songs - but you can't deny that Diana Ross's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" is an utterly majestic record. Its lyrics, penned by Ashford & Simpson, are the ultimate in devotional. Musically, it's one of the Motown house band's finest performance, all ebb-and-flow, building to a glorious climax. And then there's Diana, still sounding pure and clear as a clarion bell. Perfection.
