Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Still Sounds Relevant
Episode date - September 4, 2009
It is strange to see how history unfolds. As this show first aired, Michael Jackson had just been buried the night before, and Ted Kennedy’s passing was still on the minds of most Americans, so it’s odd to see that our 62nd episode dedicated to Motown begins with one of the Jackson 5’s saddest songs, followed by a track that features Ted Kennedy’s eulogy for his brother Bobby.
Since we are playing each Motown 45-RPM a-side in chronological order, it feels like a fairly remarkable coincidence, but it also feels good to hear that these songs manage to maintain significant amount of relevance almost 20 years later.
Songs from this show include;
Maybe Tomorrow – The Jackson 5
What the World Needs Now/Abraham, Martin & John – Tom Clay
It’s Summer – The Temptations
That’s the Way a Woman Is – The Messengers
Take Me Girl, I’m Ready – Jr. Walker & the All Stars
Keep Me – The Originals
Lo and Behold – David and Jimmy Ruffin
You Can Come Right Back to Me – David Ruffin
It Takes All Kinds of People – Stoney & Meatloaf
