Wednesday’s Theme Music

I’ve posted about this one before, but it’s one of my short-listed favorites. I can’t claim to have an absolute favorite song. Like movies, food, and books, the choice is about where I am and where I was. There are certain songs, like the other things, invested with rich memories.

This Four Tops song was one of those early songs that prompted us to find a faux microphone, like a hair brush, so we can pretend we’re the performer singing the song. It became part of our basement playlist on forty-fives. Later, it was part of our make-out parties. “Reach Out (I’ll Be There)” has lyrics that speak to young love, passion, and hope, and we had some of that. Love that bass line, too, provided by the memorable Funk Brothers.

  1. It’s always great to hear music from our past and enjoy it all over again! That was also an interesting piece as it gave a bit of background on The 4 Tops. There were certainly a number of singing groups called the “Four of Something!” Thanks for the memories. . .
