    Only one Temp and one Top left. Damn that makes me feel old.

    Damn. The Tops and the Temps are my two favorite groups ever. It's not even close in my family.

    Another of the great voices of my youth is silenced.

    I'll have "Bernadette" in my mind all day.

    I have Billy Bragg's "Levi Stubbs' Tears" in my head now.

    Good call on Bernadette, finish. That and Seven Rooms of Gloom take me back. Levi was great. It's a sad day, for sure.

    I just mentioned the Four Tops to everyone else in my office and they said, "Huh?"

    RIP. The Same Ol' Song is a sad one today.

    That was the Four Tops, wasn't it?

    Yes, Moddy, though to the unknowing fans, it's better known as Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch, isn't it?

    No, that's Can't Help Myself.

    RIP to a great singer. But much of the Four Tops stuff did sound pretty much the same, other than tweaks and different lyrics. But much the same could be said of many 1960s groups.

    RIP, Levi.
