I found this tribute to Dennis Edwards on You Tube. Here are some of my favorite songs from his time as lead singer.
Temptations - Ball of Confusion. Now, some 50 years later, this song is still so relevant. "And the band played on....so round and around we go, where the world is headed, nobody knows...."
Temptations, from 1969, the "psychedelic era" -Psychedelic Shack (heard here, an extended version).
Got 11 minutes? Even if you don't, please take a listen to this version of "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" This is also an extended version, one I had never heard before researching Dennis Edward's music today. What an arrangement! Lots more music, and some of the most powerful lyrics to ever appear in modern music.
I could fill this post up with hours of The Temptations, but I'd better call it a day now. RIP Dennis Edwards.
And now, a little about Music Moves Me (aka "4M").
The Head 4M'er is XmasDolly. Her co-4Mers are: Callie of JAmerican Spice, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ And last but certainly not least, Cathy from Curious as a Cathy.
See you next week, same time, same place!
