Old School Friday: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

The theme for this week's Old School Friday meme is 'Baby'. The idea is to post a song that has the word 'Baby' in it. I considered going with Luther Vandross or Marvin Gaye or Sam Cooke. They each had a song that would qualify.

However, there is a song that not only had the word 'Baby' in the title ... it provided a path for our imaginations to run wild.

Some of you young 'uns don't remember Smokey Robinson. Take a moment to check him out!

OK. I GIVE UP. YOU NAILED IT.
Yes, this is indeed the classic 'baby' song. No doubt.
Happy OSF Villager!

Revvy Rev and Keith - I've been missing these weekly OSF memes for the past couple of weeks. I'm glad to be back in the mix again...

Great pick!
My first pick is also a Smokey song! They don't do music like this anymore!

Great minds...and all that! This was one of my picks as well. There is something about the way he croons "baby baby" in this song that just gives the word so much meaning.

Happy OSF!

I'm down with Ooh, Baby, Baby any way I can get it, but Smokey Robinson & the Miracles are the best. Happy OSF!

I thought about this song, too. I decided to go with the memories instead of the tunes...

Smokey had one of the best falsetto voices, and his writing skills were off the chain.
