Levi Stubbs passed away today.

For those of you too young to remember, he was the front man for one of the all-time greatest vocal groups to come out of Motown! - <font color=red>The Four Tops.</font><br> <br>

♪♫<br> <br>

It is in honor of him and his incredible style & voice that I dedicate this round of Friday Nite Music.<br> <br>

The same rules apply as in previous editions, but I thought it would be great to focus on the <font color=blue>Hits of Motown.</font><br> <br>

Side Note: Levi Stubbs was the voice of Audrey II, the carnivorous plant, in the movie version of the musical Little Shop of Horrors. His birth name was Levi Stubbles.<br> <br>

although... this gets me wonderin'... when did Doo-Wop end and Motown start?
I think of the Dells as more Doo-Wop.

But, hey... I said "focus" on Motown. I didn't say we had to stick with Motown.
