Helen’s theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is “Soul.”
My pick is “Lady Soul” by the Temptations.
My favorite part of the song is:
“I always knew we’d end up together
right from the very start
and I believe we’ll make it forever
It’s written right here in my heart.”
cos I’m just a sappy romantic and this is the kind of thing that makes me think of my husband.
I’ve seen the Temptations a couple of times. The first time was about 100 years ago (well maybe in the mid-’70’s) and I saw them at the Circle Star theater. That was such a fun venue because the stage turned so every seat was a good one (except when their back was to you – LOL). They claimed that none of the over 3,000 seats was more than 50 feet from the stage. The stage made a complete turn every eight minutes. Some of the performers didn’t like it though because they said the moving stage gave them motion sickness.
We saw the Temptations again last year at the Mountain Winery. Only one of the originals (Otis Williams) was still performing but they sounded and looked great anyway.
All movements still in sync and they did perform “Lady Soul” that night. We were side stage and a little farther back than we usually sit but it was still a fun night. The Four Tops were there as well so we had a full night of Motown soul. We had our friend, Mike, with us and it was his first experience at the Mountain Winery. He’s a big Motown lover.
