This excerpted verse should be familiar to anyone capable of reading it.
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside I've got the month of May.
What can make me feel this way?
However, the next verse is only familiar to people who appreciate the phrase "Motown Closet Classic."
Why waste time lookin' at the waistline?
First I look at the purse!
A woman can be fat as can be,
Kisses sweet as honey
But that don't mean a thing to me
If she ain't got no money
If the purse is fat....that's where it's at.
And NOW...the good folks at Plan 9 Music Concept ask this question:
WHAT DO THESE SONG LYRICS HAVE IN COMMON?
And NOW...the good folks at Plan 9 Music Concept provide this answer:
Both verses were written by William "Smokey" Robinson and we do not have to ask
"Where Have You Gone, Mr. Robinson?" Because his music will always be here.
Better than performing miracles, Smokey Robinson performed with the MIRACLES.
I will now let the red ink flow and wish you a happy hyperlink to the song immortalized by the TEMPTATIONS. Then you can listen to the "other" song recorded by the Motown group who famously sang "Do You Love Me?" These money-lusters were the CONTOURS.
And, of course, HERE is a plethora of pictures of the man Bob Dylan once described as
"the greatest poet in America."
If you would like to view this blogpost–in Oliverio-speak–through the looking glass,
please spend at least a few minutes watching STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN.
But if you have one hundred and three minutes to spare, be ready for some utterly edifying and funky entertainment.
