MORNING CUP OF SOUL - SMOKEY ROBINSON - SWEPT FOR YOU BABY

Smokey Robinson of course has been called one of the greatest living poets and this song is pure poetry put to music. "You're like a broom, I'm like dust in the room. Cause I'm swept for you Baby" sung in that sweet falsetto that is Smokey's trademark. The backing harmony is by the one and only Miracles. "You sweep me off my feet every time you pass me by, your presence in the room puts me on air, I don't have to see you to know you are there." The lyrics are crazy good and I'll be glad when R&B music return to great lyrics like these.
