Song of the Week 2/19/10

The Four Tops - "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)"

I must confess--I had no idea that this was a Four Tops song until last week. I happened to hear someone request it on the CBS-FM nighttime show. And when the guy said the song title and added "by The Four Tops," I did a double take. Then I went to the Internet to confirm what I heard. I always thought this 1973 hit, from the album Keeper of the Castle, was by the Spinners or some other R&B vocal group. It sounds nothing like The Four Tops of "I Can't Help Myself," that's for certain. It's drenched in that 70s funk I loved hearing on WGY growing up.
