    Great song , they were both at their best, Indestructible is a great album that should have been a much bigger success.
  3. Smokey Robinson - Indestructible

    Although a bit of a cameo, it was great to hear two of the finest voices in music on the same record.
  4. Love this quote

    "Yes, all lives do matter, but they only matter when black lives matter too."

    They got it right with the Four Tops and all of the Motown acts, but hard to think that The Miracles and Drifters would not be in the top 10.
    I would also make a case for the Dells, Stylistics ,...
  8. Good points

    I also am a big fan of Save the Children another Obie song, that to me should be the song that is playing now, even more so than Whats Going On- that is a song with so much love for the future of...

  11. Cardboard

    I am a big fan of Spike, but from the get go, just was shocked, I thought maybe it was because I was watching it on Netflex vs. at the movies, so I went to Rotten Tomatoes to see what type of...
  12. Marvin was the one good thing in the movie

    I just finish watching Spikes movie, I was stunned at how poorly written, acted and directed it was, I am shocked this came from the same guy who did Do the Right Thing, The Klansman, Inside Man,...

    And for the record James Brown's wife set fire to a hotel in New Hampshire that I was working at. No major damages mostly smoke, he was very apologetic and paid the damage right on the spot.

    I could have sworn they were saying Like a bar of soap needs a kid, makes sense, but thought i would check it out a few years a go and realized it was like a lost soul needs a friend

    Can never get enough musical history of the Funk Brothers.
  19. Reach Out is number one

    He almost got it right, and he probably would have selected a month ago, but due to what is happening now a choice that I can agree with. My favorite comments was on What Does It Take, brought chills...

    Agree Susan would be a great choice, and the great Dave Marsh- who was a major Levi fan.Nelson George would also be a great choice.
  21. Only one Levi Stubbs

    As much as love the Temptations they did not hold a candle to Levi, you don't replace him. It is just a cover group now, I asked Duke if he ever sang lead on a song and he said he had no desire,...
