Maybe Tomorrow – The Jackson 5

Every Single Motown 'A-Side': Still Sounds Relevant

Episode 62

Episode date - September 4, 2009

How Music Changed

    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
