This melts me to a gibbering mess. Play this and you could do anything with me, shape me, mould me, delete me. It;s those backing vocals that turn me into jelly...

 

'Barry White/Oh Love we finally made it.'

an obvious one for me is Marvin Gaye 'whats going on'  but for a real 'haunting' tune try Masters of Soul  'by the time I get to phoenix'.  unbelievable version and make sure you listen right to the end!!

Swing Low Sweet Chariot did it for me, not the Sam Cooke, 1960 version though.

 

I mean the version that the England supporters were singing to me at the Millenium Stadium last Friday night

A real tear jerker this one , even William Bell, Velvet Hammer and Pharell W wouldn't be so happy hearing it.

The great Paul Williams gets every last drop of emotion from the words whilst the others provide the perfect backing.

Unissued at the time , maybe too intense, for Motown. If it had been issued, the recording may have faded out before it does here but that would have lost the last gasp from Paul.

At the time Paul Williams had a very troubled life, marriage break up, failing health, drink , drugs and rows within the group. He took his own life, although some people question this, which adds further depth to the record.
