I was never a Motown fan in the late sixties or seventies but this album Motown Chartbusters Vol 3 was always on the turntable when having our weekend meetings of friends. I even bought it. It is one of my favourite albums of all time if only for the great memories each and every track gives me.

This Old Heart Of Mine

The Isley Brothers

Ooh, this old heart of mine, been broken thousand times
Each time you break away, I fear you’re gone to stay
Lonely nights that come, memories that go
Bringing you back again, hurting me more and more
Maybe it’s my mistake
To show this love I feel inside
‘Cause each day that passes by
You’ve got me never knowing if I’m coming or going but I
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you, yes I do, yes I do
These old arms of mine
Miss having you around
Makes these tears inside
Start pouring down
Always with half a kiss
You remind me of what I miss
Though I try to control myself
Like a fool I start grinnin’ ’cause my head starts spinnin’ ’cause I
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you, yes I do, yes I do
Ooh, I try hard to hide, my hurt inside
This old heart of mine always keeps me cryin’
The way you’re treating me, leaves me incomplete
You’re here for the day, gone for the week now
But if you leave me a hundred times
A hundred times I’ll take you back
I’m yours whenever you want me
I’m not too proud to shout it, tell the world about it ’cause I
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you
This is old heart, darling is weak for you
I love you, yes I do, yes I do
I love you, yes I do, darling is weak for you

You’re All I Need To Get By

Marvin Gaye with Tammi Terrell

You’re all I need to get by

Like the sweet morning dew, I took one look at you
And it was plain to see, you were my destiny
With arms open wide, I threw away my pride
I’ll sacrifice for you, dedicate my life to you

I will go where you lead
Always there in time of need
And when I lose my will
You’ll be there to push me up the hill
There’s no, no looking back for us
We got love sure ‘nough, that’s enough
You’re all, you’re all I need to get by

You’re all I need to get by

Like an eagle protects his nest, for you I’ll do my best
Stand by you like a tree, dare anybody to try and move me
Darling in you I found strength where I was torn down
Don’t know what’s in store but together we can open any door

Just to do what’s good for you and inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man out of a soul that didn’t have a goal
Cause we, we got the right foundation and with love and determination
You’re all, you’re all I want to strive for and do a little more
You’re all, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You’re all, you’re all I need
You’re all I need
You’re all I need to get by
You’re all, all I need, oh baby
You’re all I want…

Behind A Painted Smile

Isley Brothers

Whenever you’re near I hide my tears
Behind a painted smile
You can’t imagine the tears and sorrow
Behind a painted smile

My life’s a masquerade
A world of let’s pretend, dear
Since you took your love
Pretending never ends, dear

But I can’t let you know
That I still need you so, no

(Darling I hide the tears that I cry)
Whenever you’re near I hide my tears
Behind a painted smile
You can’t imagine the tears and sorrow
Behind a painted smile

I can’t let you see
All the tears I’m crying
You would pity me
That would be like dying

If I can’t have your love
I don’t need your sympathy

(Darling I hide the tears that I cry)
Whenever you’re near I hide my tears
Behind a painted smile
You can’t imagine the tears and sorrow
Behind a painted smile

My life is a masquerade
Since you took your love away

Whenever you’re near I hide my tears
I just can’t let you see
How much you hurting me

Whenever you’re near I hide my tears
Behind a painted smile
