Levi Stubbs passed away today.
http://apnews.excite.com/article/20081017/D93SGL2O0.html <br> <br>

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>

Marvin Gaye - After The Dance

Another great song. The album this is from, I Want You, was my favorite by him. Really hot music back in the 70's. This song always reminded me of when I met my husband, who I've been married to for over 30 years. We used to dance to it and we were madly in love.

This has both the original and instrumental version.
