You Keep Running Away - The Four Tops

Nobody can sing for someone's affection as urgently as Levi Stubbs. There are few Motown acts that can match his emotionally pleading punch. If my heart were in shambles I'd steal his famously fragile composure for practically crying in front of audiences. His magnetic showmanship tends to get overshadowed by the likes of Marvin Gaye or Smokey Robinson, but that's largely due to never breaking out solo. If you've never given The Four Tops a serious listen I recommend starting with "You Keep Running Away".

Another taste of the fantastic Four Tops.
