are important, but the healing power of soul music is the thing. I’ve spared you Missing You, by Diana Ross, which is probably better than you might think, and is, in fact, about the absence of Marvin Gaye, with whom she had an on-off thing (I think) – the video certainly suggests as much. I’m secretly a big fan of La Ross (who I once saw without her wig, when I was a waiter in room service – she had 4 bodyguards on the door, with guns) and I play Touch Me In The Morning and The Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To?) more often than is reasonably likely.
I’m not much of a fan of this guy, but I do love the song, and the performance here, and the geeky girls in the crowd. It’s pretty fearless to come on stage at a festival and open with a ballad, too.
