I Can’t Get Next To You

I think that “I Can’t Get Next To You” by The Temptations is probably my favourite Motown song:

Here are some choice lyrics from the song:

I can build a castle from a single grain of sand.
I can make a ship sail on dry land.

It’s lyrical magic at funk factor five, and plays perfectly to the strengths of a musical group with five male singers (although I find it fun to sing alone, fumbling through Eddie Kendrick‘s crazy high notes).
