I failed to note the passing of Levi Stubbs last Friday and I can’t let it go by. This man made The Four Tops work and he was loyal – perhaps to a fault. He had many opportunities to “make it” on his own but wouldn’t leave his buds. In this song, “I Can’t Help Myself”, Stubbs takes a lyric that leave quite a bit to be desired and makes it sound almost like the Blues – the rawness of his voice makes his “Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch” sound like pure wound in the face of desire destined to last, forever unfulfilled. Rest peacefully Levi.
