Ivan... you truly, truly are a goofball.
Why aren't we just listening to Smokey? Well because in America, the majority don't really have an appreciation for the music that we have today that originated and innovated by Afro Americans. From Negro Spirituals to Gospel to Blues to Rock to Jazz to Hip Hop. One of those geniuses that this song is referring to came out Motown with the likes of many others ex Marvin, Stevie, Michael etc. Mr William ( Smokey ) Robinson is the gentlemen this beautiful song is dedicated to by the pop group ABC.
Martin kicks a**. So definitive his vocals
