Soul Classicos:Eddie Kendricks

So in this weekly segment Of my blog Which I would Like to call "Soul Classicos", I will try to present you people with a throwback of a throwback. Good old music that has probably been forgotten. This is a homage to them.

Eddie Kendricks is probably the greatest of his time, at least in my opinion. In a era of so much good music like Led Zeppelin, The Ojays, Marvin Gaye, the Four Tops and so forth. Eddie Kendricks is a great.
I love all the songs he did with the Temptations.

Everybody knows My girl, the song they did for the movie. (don't lie like you haven't watched it)

My girl is still a song you can play whenever, Its that "Sunday morning cleaning music" lol.
ohh, and how can we forget, The classic classic classicccc of the classics

I'm gonna make you love me

But above his stuff that he did with the group he has ill songs as a solo artist

He has his hit, Keep on Trucking

And one of my favorites
My People Hold on

With a Catalouge of good music. Eddie Kendricks is one of the best.

I'd like to don him the Father of Falsetto with this song

Date with the Rain

this is probably My favorite song of his. Its such a sad song if you hear the lyrics, but it uplifts you at the same time. Andd his Falsetto is just BEAST!

This concludes this weeks Soul Classico.
