HAPPY BIRTHDAY SMOKEY!
69 years ago today Smokey Robinson was born in Detroit (what!). Im posting a link to one of my favorite and most sweetest songs by him. What more can I say? This man is timeless. Shit, even George Harrison wrote an Ode for him and "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club gives him a shoutout.
Baby Come Close-Smokey Robinson 1973
And for all you boogie heads...Tell Me Tomorrow Pt. 1 1982
RANDOM FACT: Did you know Smokey came out with his own line of frozen gumbo dinners? For reals!
