Reach Out by The Four Tops – Motown Monday

And your world around is crumbling down, Darling reach out

Staying true to their lyrics “I’ll be there”, The Four tops stayed together as a band for 41 years without a single member change. Now that’s what I call loyalty. I can’t see that happening with any band/group formed in today’s music industry. I wonder why that is? It os rumoured that this song was actually a throwaway album track but fortunately Berry Gordy had the vision to see that it would be a hit.

Reach Out made it to number 1 in the UK with it’s original release in 1966 and now, 50 years later, still carries that hit quality.

Motown is a definitely a legacy worthy of a lot or respect. What that record company managed to achieve through music cannot be overstated, particularly given the zeitgeist of the era in which it was started.

Working from the appropriately titled Hitsville Recording Studios, Motown churned out hots after hits, year after year. Their success is not limited to their impact on the music charts but their impact on the culture and the thinking of the people their music reached. It would be fair to say that Motown played a major role in easing racial tension in a then completely segregated America.

To that end, we have created Motown Monday to celebrate and show some respect to some of the amazing music that Motown has blessed us with over the years.
