Had the coolest dream. On air and played rare songs by Crazy Elephant,White Plains and James and Bobby Purify. You suppose that means something
Love the show!!!
My Dancing Days The quiet click of the radio Fills the room with sound Memories of my distant past Spin my head around The Sound of Soul and Motown Stand the test of time Better than flares and tank tops My Seventies fashion crime I liked a bit of Philly The voice of Billy Paul Atlantic tracks and some from Stax But Motown most of all Marvin Gaye was getting it on Diana was Supreme Little Stevie Wonder Was lighting up the scene Barrett Strong sang his song, He only wanted money Smokey, he just Shopped Around, The Contours thought it Funny It was a time of more than music It was a time of learning life The music seemed to point the way Through happy days, and strife Each song just told a story Sent emotions off the chart Each word, so sweet, was glory Each beat just grabbed my heart Mr Gordy somehow tracked my tears Memories engrained through all my years When my world was turning upside down I felt so safe with him around It was my rock that kept me sane When music hits, you feel no pain So thank you Mr Motown For the music of my youth Also of my middle years And now when long in tooth So when life is done and I’m on my way Mr Big Stuff off to meet To Stevie’s Higher Ground At the Dark End of The Street I’ll have my party up in Heaven With Marvin and a Party Seven A dance with Martha in the street My Harlem Shuffle with a Motown beat But if down below is where I go That’s alright with me I’ll have some fun before I’m done If it’s there I’ve got to be But this old boy ain't done just yet There’s music still to hear Some tunes to play Before I'm on my way Before clowns can shed a tear So all you music lovers Whatever be your thing Be you jazz or house, punk or blues, Metal, pop or swing I know some are into Reggae Others, rock and roll But if music is the food of life I say fill your bowl with Soul By Bill Clayton © 2017
