The Four Tops – I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) (1965)

Sipping a pina colada in Frankie and Benny’s this evening (I know how to live), I suddenly realised that there really cannot be a better way to ring in the new year than to put The Four Tops on constant rotation and crank up LOUD?!

One of my favourite songs by one of my favourite bands of all-time finds writers Holland-Dozier-Holland at the peak of their powers and Levi Stubbs proving again to be one of the finest vocalists Motown Records ever had.

The original single, a live version from 1965 and then a scratchy, but euphoric, version from a Christmas show on Belgian TV in 1967!
