Levi Stubbs- RIP
Rather than post some of Levi Stubb's music, I thought I'd post this appreciation of his work from Billy Bragg. "When the world falls apart some things stay in place."
I'm sure any number of other websites will be posting Four Tops songs. Listen to them. They are as close to timeless as pop music can ever be.
Coincidentally, when I was locked up in the psych ward, the staff was trying to inject some life into a ward full of deeply depressed people. They played us music, oldies but goodies and encouraged us to move. I was so depressed I didn't care. I would fall asleep in the middle of a sentence because I just wanted to go away. They put on something Motown. I wish I could tell you it was the Four Tops, but I don't remember. I remember this much. I got up and I danced.
