When Smokey Sings – ABC
In 1987 new wave duo, ABC, released a tribute to soul singer Smokey Robinson. When Smokey Sings had varying degrees of chart success around the world.
Robinson himself was on the pop charts with his single “One Heartbeat” at the same time as this tribute song, marking one of the only times to date that a singer simultaneously was the performing artist of one Top 40 hit, while the subject of another chart hit. For the week ending 3 October 1987, both songs were in the Top 10 simultaneously. – Wiki

Two from my teen years which evoke huge, no HUGE memories, are Crystal Blue Persuasion and Can’t Take my Eyes Off You.
Both great songs but Can’t Take My Eyes Off You is an amazing song and has always been a favourite of mine. I love the way it builds. I might have to feature it in coming days.
