So, we saw Smokey Robinson play in London last night, as part of the Electric Proms. And I tell you what, he was brilliant. At 69 years of age, his voice and his dance moves were both startlingly good. He was positively frugging. And I can't imagine how his voice could sound any better. Smooth but smoky. He kept us entertained with little stories – quite a few about the Temptations who sang many of his songs, and who he called 'The Temps' which would be a great name for a band – and basically delivered a polished show, straight from a bygone era when singers wore suits and sang love songs. Everyone sang along, sometimes in three part harmony, as directed by Smokey – I mean, who can resist singing My Girl... My Girl... My Girl! As Vice President of Motown throughout its heyday and the writer of so many amazing songs (see here for a list), it's incredible that he is also a masterful entertainer and yeah, possessor of an incredible voice as well. But I suppose some people are just born to be awesome. The concert is being shown tonight on BBC2 at 11pm, or on iPlayer if you miss it.
