I don’t know how many of you will remember this song by the Commodores, but it’s a wonderful song about missing those whose music moved you. In the case of the Commodores, they were talking about Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.
With the passing of Sean Levert, it seemed as good a time as any to post these words.
Marvin he was a friend of mine And he could sing a song His heart in every line. Marvin sang of the joy and pain He opened up our minds And I still can hear him say: Talk to me so you can see What's goin' on.
Say you will sing your songs Forever more ever more ever more.
Gonna be some sweet sounds comin' down on the nightshift. I bet you're singin' proud oh I bet you pull a crowd. Gonna be a long night it's gonna be allright on the nightshift. You found another home I know you're not alone on the nightshift. You found another home I know you're not alone on the nightshift.
Jackie hey what you're doin' now? It seems like yesterday When we were workin' out.
Jackie you set the world on fire You came and gifted us your love it lifted us higher and higher. Keep it up and we'll be there at your side. Say you will sing your songs forever more ever more ever more.
Gonna be some sweet sounds comin' down on the nightshift....
Rest in Peace, Sean. You will be missed.
