The MOTOWN experience in NYC!

I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE that the SUPER FREAK, the STUBBORN KIND OF FELLOW made a trip to NYC. The ABC of getting to NYC does not require A BREATHTAKING GUY but simple planning. I woke up and said BYE BYE BABY to my dream love and said GOOD MORNING HEARTACHE. It is an everyday feeling,a feeling of I KNOW I’M LOOSING YOU. I HEAR A SYMPHONY every night in my dreams but I need to go to NYC, so bye SUGAR PIE HONEY BUNCH. I WANT YOU BACK tomorrow, as I’LL BE THERE for you. I heard the bus driver yelling GET READY. I replied YOU’RE ALL I NEED TO GET BY. I also knew if I CAN’T GET NEXT TO YOU I will never reach NYC.

The summer day in the city saw people DANCING IN THE STREETS and it seemed like it was THE HAPPENING weekend. the BRICK HOUSE which housed the toys ’r’ us shop was where I went to SHOP AROUND but to shop there I GOT THE FEELIN’ that MONEY is what is needed. I also thought that I AIN’T THAT PROUD TO BEG. But then I GOT A JOB, that too a good one. For me there AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH. Inside the shop it was a WAR. MERCY MERCY ME. WHAT’S GOING ON is the first thought that came to my mind. It looked like it was THE HAPPENING event at the SQUARE BIZ of toys for kids. motown-on-broadway-photo1

I went to the transformers section and said GIVE IT TO ME BABY. The attendant said why don’t you REACH OUT AND TOUCH the toy. He said that you will always REMEMBER ME for the advice. MY GUY was phenomenal and removed the BALL OF CONFUSION that was in my head. while shopping I picked up some BUTTERED POPCORN. The check-out girl was CRUSIN’ through the customers. MY GIRL was REET PETITE, THE SWEETEST GIRL IN TOWN and gave me my transformers, SIGNED SEALED DELIVERED. PLEASE, MR. POSTMAN was not needed to be used as I did not use the shipping option. While walking out of the store, the whole store burst out singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to elmo and when I stepped out the door attendant, joe, asked me CAN I CLOSE THE DOOR. I replied HEY JOE, thanks.

I ate a NYC favourite, the hot dog, which arises such passion, that I wanted TO BE LOVED and I forgot all the LONELY TEARDROPS (after my broken dream). But then LOVE IS HERE AND NOW YOU’RE GONE. I know I CAN’T GET NEXT TO YOU, I cannot REACH OUT but YOU’VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME. my dream love, I ask you DO YOU LOVE ME. Please do not bother me in my dreams, please STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE. Please don’t make me feel like YOU’RE A NOBODY TILL SOMEBODY LOVES YOU.

I saw motown the musical. It is actually true – IT’S WHAT IN THE GROOVES THAT COUNTS. I remember MY MAMA DONE TOLD ME that the SHOTGUN approach in a musical will work. 56 songs in 2.5 hours were magical.

In the end it does not matter WHO’S LOVING YOU or WHERE DID OUR LOVE GO , it is all about THE LOVE YOU SAVE. It is all about you BABY, I NEED YOUR LOVIN’. It is all about the music.
